The West Waterford pony club had a “spooktackular” day at their Halloween show that was held at Richard and Niamh Marsh’s home in Curraglass on the 30th of October. A great obstacle course was set up for a hunt chase competition with riders having to negotiate fences, bending poles, banks and stepping stones. The younger members were ably assisted by the older members within the club and were given great assistance by our super instructors, Ashling and Paula O’Brien. There was great encouragement from the competitive parents on the side line. Next there was the fancy dress with some super costumes on display; all entrants were awarded with a range of prizes from best smurf team to best mermaid!
Once the horses were returned to their boxes it was on to the haunted horse box which was prepared by Amanda Hogan. The kid’s shrieks from the horse box could be heard all over Curraglass. Huge thanks to Amandaa for the super job she did. Next it was on to a great feast prepared by The Marsh family. It was a great day’s fun – big thanks to all the members for their help on the day.
