It’s tradition for my family to go hunting on both Boxing Day and New Years Day. Whilst I didn’t manage to get out on boxing day, I was lucky enough to be offered the ride on one of my best friend’s Connemara pony for the New Years Day meet.
I must say I’m a Connemara convert. They are wonderful ponies. I can definitely see why my friend has decided to ditch the horses and keep Connemaras instead! We had the most enjoyable day. You know a good day has been had when the ponies are plastered in mud and the riders still have happy faces by the end of the day!
Here’s some shots of us in action (photo’s courtesy of Lisa Wood):
Did you manage to get out during the Christmas break? Or have you been out hunting lately? If so we’d love you to share you pictures with us!
