THE annual parent and member meeting of Sutherland Pony Club was held recently, with everyone happy with the 2012 activities and programme of events and it was decided to follow the same format during 2013.

It was pointed out that even the smallest and youngest members have now become proficient enough to control their ponies without being on a lead rein.

Members were asked for new ideas and several suggested that they would like to try polo and le trek. The club will try and arrange for a person with this experience to attend one of the summer rallies.

It was unanimous that the Instruction/Camp be extended to three days in Summer 2013.

The meeting finished with tea, coffee and biscuits.

Winter activities are now well under way and it was time for the parents to play their part last week when they were busy baking, sandwich making and taking part in the Lairg Quiz Night, as they were to be the beneficiaries.

It was a superb night and the sum of £96 has gone into the funds which will be used to purchase equipment and pay for qualified instructors during the coming riding season.

The members and their parents attended a Vet Talk last Thursday. This covered many aspects of horse illness and sickness during the winter months and how to help prevent and avoid many of them.

Louise from the Kessock Equine Practice produced a very interesting Powerpoint presentation and lecture with a wide range of interesting diagrams and pictures, with a question and answer session at the end.

The evening finished with warm drinks or juice and biscuits for everyone.
