On Saturday 8 May, our newly-formed Pony Club Show jumping team entered their first competition held at Newark Showground run by South Notts Pony Club.

Newark Equestrian's Show jumping team consists of Tia riding Ella Mae, Lexie riding Mr Bo Jangles, Abigail riding Tulip and Milli, and Molly riding Bonnie.  All of these ponies/riders are newly formed partnerships with all being purchased within the last year.

Despite the awful weather conditions, all the girls did brilliantly.  They all coped well with a new venue, first Pony Club competition, new ponies and the horrendous rain - they should all be very proud of themselves.  Team NE are proud of you all!

The girls even managed to win some frillies - Molly 1st in 70cm and 2nd in 60cm, Tia 5th in 70cm and Abigail 8th in 50cm.

Special thanks to Christine for taking them and coaching them on the day.  Thanks also to Dannie and Emma for all the hours spent teaching the girls in their lessons.




Please following our Covid guidelines and sanitise hands on arrival.  Adults and children over the age of 11 to wear a mask whilst on the yard and to maintain social distancing wherever possible.

We looking forward to welcoming back all our customers, old and new.  We've missed you!
