Trundle pony club was restarted 12 months ago after 30 years. After a lot of hard work by our members and their families and lots of community help our club is now 20 members strong and all involved are enjoying the benefits. But don’t take my word for it let’s hear from it straight from the horses mouth.
I (Jimmy the horse) overheard a conversation while standing in my stall at pony club recently between the boss (chief instructor) and some kids asking why they liked coming to pony club. I wondered why nobody ever asked my opinion or that of my friends after all without us it would just be club. So I set about asking some of the lads what they thought. Here are some of their answers:
Ace: Beats standing around the paddock doing nothing and my owner seems to enjoy it.
Simba: I like getting hay at lunchtime. That never happens at home.
Bluey: Just another day at the office teaching these young whippersnappers what it’s all about, somebody’s got to do it.
Binjang Oasis: (my mates call me ace but I prefer my full name).
It’s like a day at the spa for me. I like to pampered, after all, a horse of my breeding deserves no less.
Angel: It’s nice to get amongst the boys and show off my many talents.
Cocoa: It’s nice to get out and have some stimulating conversation with my peers rather than just my paddock mate.
Wyatt: It gets me out and about and I get to learn some new things rather than just chasing cows around all day.
Oscar: Being the youngster of the group it’s good to get some feedback from the oldies on how they think I’m progressing.
Jocko: It gives me the opportunity to practice things I’m not sure of without the added pressure of competition
Jedda: I’ve been around the traps a bit so it’s good to share my wisdom and knowledge with those less fortunate.
So there you have it, as you can see we all have a great time at pony club and I think all the lads agree we wouldn’t have it any other way.
