HAPPA With Blackburn & District Pony Club


November 2, 2021



During September HAPPA hosted a fabulous evening of pony club mounted games in conjunction with Blackburn & District Pony club.

The arena was transformed into a Horse Of The Year Show type of event, with music, commentary and dazzling showbiz spotlights to give this local pony club team an opportunity to ride in the big atmosphere of a packed arena, along with the thrill of being cheered on by a 150 strong audience who were able to sit back and experience a little of Horse Of The Year Show experience, but closer to home!

The evening was a resounding success complete with a pie & pea supper. The Blackburn & District pony club were able to use this event as a key training opportunity to prepare both ponies and children for what they were to experience at the NEC at the real Horse of the year show when they joined the other 5 teams who had qualified to compete in the Prestigious Prince Phillip Cup.

The team has close links with HAPPA and have used the arena hire to train on numerous occasions.

Also, two of the team members started their pony club mounted games careers on two HAPPA loan ponies: HAPPA Smokey & HAPPA Millie.

The stories of HAPPA Smokey and HAPPA Millie really do highlight how every pony should be given a second chance.

We would also like to give a shout out to Neil at Brightlitesuk for supporting this event.
