During the Easter holidays I was lucky enough to spend a day with the Company of Horsemen up in Shropshire, learning to trick ride. I had entered a competition in Pony magazine and was lucky enough to win! The day was absolutely brilliant! I spent time on the metal horses learning the tricks, then I got to prastise the tricks on Duncan, one of their stunt horses. Spencer, my teacher was really funny and made me laugh. Some of the tricks were easy and some were very hard, but I really enjoyed the whole day. In fact I want to go again and I would recommend it to all of the Beds South members. I even asked Spencer if ponies clubs can go, and he said yes. If you would like a great day out then try trick riding with the Company of horsemen.
