In November every year there is a ten day horse fair in a town called Golega. Golega is a town dedicated to the horse and is situated in central Portugal, this fair has been going on for over 500 years! Crafty Ponies visited the fair and here is some of the action! The horses that you see in the fim are mainly Lusitanos, a breed very similar to the Spanish horses that we breed!
Amy and Carlo in the puissance competition!
Watch Amy and Carlo in a puissance (higher and higher) competition - how high will they jump? Carlo is a horse from our riding school and he is a very big horse, he is 17.1hh. hh means hands high which is a measuring term for horses, so Carlo is 17 hands high and 1 inch, a hand is 4" so Carlo is 5'9" at the withers! Have a look at the points of the pony lesson to see where the withers are!
When we were developed the kits here at our riding school in Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire we asked some of the parents of the riders if they would take a kit home to try. We specifically asked for NON-SEWERS to see if the kit and instructions were clear to read and easy to make. These first non-sewers also had NO video step-by step instructions as we had not filmed them yet! See how they got on!
Have a ride in a hunter trials!
You are riding Comet (the pony in the grooming lesson and in the breeds of UK film) and following mum who is riding Sovereign in his second hunter trials with Rockwood harriers. We hope that you enjoy your ride around the cross country course!
