Christmas Rally 2014

On December 20th 2014 MBPC held their annual Christmas Rally at Simpsons Beach.

10.00am was our fancy dress parade (judged by senior coach Ron Cooke), riders came in a wonderful variety of dress up with their pony – Arabian, pirate, queen, santa! The parade was followed by an awesome ‘Tinsel Trek’ over the Christensen Farm.

12.00pm Lunch time BBQ with delicious sliders and sausages, straight after lunch we had an epic visit from Santa, who gave out very useful gifts – like face brushes and hoof picks! There was also lovely presents for siblings you are not MBPC members!

Lastly our members and their ponies had an absolute blast playing games both mounted and un mounted – there was bending relays, barrel racing relays, egg and spoon and sack races!

Thank you so much to our awesome committee who made this day happen, thank you to Susan Christensen and Rob Christensen for allowing us to enjoy the awesome farm, thank you to our coaches Vanessa Christensen, Anne Nicol, Ron Cooke and all our awesome members and their ponies for making such an awesome Christmas Rally 2014! 🙂
