Festive Fun For All

The livery yard had decided that we should have a ride out together at Christmas... & what started as something quite small, ended up being something much bigger!!

Almost all liveries set a date and time to enjoy a ride out (with some tinsel of course!), but why just ride out?!

We decided to ride to the local pub - St Mary's Inn - for a festive tipple. But when I spoke to the manager to make sure he was happy with horses stood outside, he offered to supply us with mulled wine & a mince pie each (so long as we picked up our muck!)

Seemed a fair deal!

Our group rapidly expanded to almost 20 horses & riders, with some on foot also meeting us at the pub.

Most of us managed to stand still to get in the photo in front of St Mary's Inn



Thinking of safety on the narrow, winding back road, with the occasion bad driver, we contacted the Police to ask for safety tips. As they asked what our ride was all about, we informed them to The Pegasus Centre & what it was all about. Amazingly, they offered to send us some mounted section escorts - very exciting!!

Overall, this was a really great day out!! It brought all the liveries and the centre staff together for a fun filled ride, with some going all out with their Christmas dress - we have Santa Claus, a few Elves, and even a Christmas Angel, as well a miles of tinsel!!
