I drove a pair of our little blacks at Cricklands yesterday, pleasingly won with them. One of them is from the lead in the team (Ben ) and the other ( Boni ) is usually in the wheel of the team. I’m hoping they might go in the lead together, particularly in the marathon phase of the outdoor events. It is good for them to work in pair and it was fun getting them cantering around the obstacles with the emphasis on getting Boni more forward going .
Averina (owner of all the little black ponies) drove a pair as well, Cefn and Adam,these are the least experienced of the 6 ponies and came in second.
Angela Cutforth was 3rd in the novice single class first time going to Cricklands with her pony, Big Ben, that we have been helping her with, and Julia Snow was 7th having only driven a handful of times, driving Averina’s pony Zilla.
