Riding the Range

A quiet “walk on”, accompanied by a gentle tap with the heels, is all that is needed to set Mr Bob, Alfie and Murphy on their way, as our pupils have been finding out.  We have been very lucky that riding started up again early on this term and, given the fine weather we have been having, our pupils have spent much of their time riding the bounds of the Drum Estate with the RDA.  Confidence and skills have been growing, as well as the challenge of discouraging their ponies from tucking into the lush greenery whilst out and about – a veritable Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory if you have four legs and like to neigh!
