I got my first pony, Angel, when I was nine and I still ride her now although we only do mounted games because I’m too tall to do anything else on her! I also own a 15.2hh Anglo-Arab called Pinky who has made it very clear she doesn’t think jumping is any fun at all (every pole is a dragon lying in wait apparently) and so I started doing some dressage with her last year and now I am hoping to start doing some endurance too.\u003cbr\u003e\u003c/p\u003e\n\u003cp style=\u0022margin-bottom: 0px;\u0022\u003e\u003cbr\u003e\n\u003c/p\u003e\n\u003cp style=\u0022margin-bottom: 0px;\u0022\u003eI went along to an introductory evening run by the Leicestershire and Rutland Endurance Group in March and they gave me lots of helpful advice. \u0026nbsp;Pinky and I did our first pleasure ride a few weeks ago at Prestwold Hall which was an 11 mile ride, so\u0026nbsp; a good length for our first time, and it was nearly all around fields and on tracks. I went my friend from the Quorn Hunt Pony Club, Molly on her Welsh Section C. We were both a bit nervous beforehand because we didn’t know what to expect but we both LOVED it! All the stewards and other riders were really friendly and helped us find the way when we took a wrong turn (we cantered straight past the gateway into another field) and we both even got a rosette at the end!\u003c/p\u003e\n\u003cp style=\u0022margin-bottom: 0px;\u0022\u003e\u003cbr\u003e\n\u003c/p\u003e\n\u003cp style=\u0022margin-bottom: 0px;\u0022\u003ePinky hardly sweated up at all and she felt like she could have gone twice as far. \u0026nbsp;It made me decide that I really want to do some more pleasure rides and build up to doing some competitive rides in the future. Molly and I are planning to go to another pleasure ride in a few weeks at Tugby, Leicestershire. Another friend of ours from Pony Club, Jess, thinks it sounds so much fun she wants to join us too. When I was thinking about trying some rides I was told that they’re addictive – it looks like that might be true!”\u003c/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003c/p\u003e\n\u003cfigure style=\u0022text-align: center;\u0022\u003e\u003cimg src=\u0022https://egb.myclubhouse.co.uk/Client/Images/Cms/PC_LOGO_1_.jpg\u0022 data-image=\u00221\u0022\u003e\u003c/figure\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003c/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003c/p\u003e\n\u003col\u003e\n \u003cli\u003eApply for an Endurance MasterCard from the Pony Club. \u003ca href=\u0022mailto:mailto:kelly@pcuk.org?subject=Endurance%20MasterCard\u0022\u003eClick here to email the Endurance Secretary\u003c/a\u003e. \u003c/li\u003e\n \u003cli\u003eApply for Club Membership from Endurance GB. \u003ca href=\u0022https://egb.myclubhouse.co.uk/Registration/Register\u0022\u003eClick here to apply online.\u003c/a\u003e \u003c/li\u003e\n \u003cli\u003eEnter your chosen ride - and write Pony Club member on your entry for, or on the notes section online.
