Good ride, little bit of excitement from Jonny, Finn thought he was a race horse, and Dallas had fun but thought everyone else was crazy. Hope to see you next month !

Planned events for 2015

January 31st, 2015 by PonyExpress No comments »

There are a number of events which BIHORA are planning to hold this year.  Below are the events and months, dates are still to be confirmed.

 

Monthly Group Trail ride – We are hoping to hold a group trail ride once a month (weather permitting) and to have different rides around the island.

Sunday February 15th  at 10 am, Meadows Arena –  First Monthly Trail Ride –  if the weather looks good.  We will collect and start at the Meadows for an easy trail ride for the first one, and ride through the forest to the Cove onto the Bowfest field.  This ride will hopefully show that there are still horse riders on the island using the trails and arena.  See you all there!

 

March - Tack Cleaning party at Shady Acres on Bishops Hill (Vivian and David Pearce’s home) – March 7 from 1 to 3pm

 

 

AprilEaster with horses.  The public is invited to put on their Easter Bonnets and come down to the Meadows for a gathering of horsey folk and friends. We will play some games, have some fun and maybe even have an Easter treat.

 

May – Meadows Arena Work Party – We will replace rotten fence posts and rails and if there are any extra hands, get the poles and jump wings out for use over the summer.

 

June – Trail Obstacle course day – There will be an obstacle course set up for all riding disciplines, Western or English at the Meadows arena.

 

July – Jumping Day- Jumps and poles will be set up for all levels of riders (and those on foot leading ponies), to practice going over poles, be that 6 inches or more.  This will be footing and weather dependent.

 

August – Team Triathlon- A Triathlon was held a number of years ago and it was very successful and lots of fun.  We are hoping to arrange one for this year, if anyone out there is interested in competing in one of the disciplines (Running, Cycling or Horse riding), we’d love to hear from you.  (president@bihora.org)

 

Other events are currently under discussion, so please come and visit this page again, we hope to keep it up to date.

We are hoping to hold a group trail ride once a month (weather permitting) and to have different rides around the island.

So starting in February we are targeting Sunday Feb 15th  at 10 am- if the weather looks good.

We will collect and start at the Meadows for an easy trail ride for the first one, and ride through the Cove to the Bowfest field.

This ride will hopefully show that there are still horse riders on the island using the trails and arena.  See you all there!
