Tim and Jean Connell (Achnacarry Highland Ponies), are kindly hosting a ride out at Pitmenzie, near Auchtermuchty.
There are two rides, one for those who like to keep things a bit more 'sedate'...perhaps those with youngsters, or as Jean put it 'those who like to blether'...and a slightly faster ride for those who like things a bit more exciting. Both rides follow the same route, and offer the chance to hack in some beautiful surroundings. The hack is a mixture of off road riding on tracks, with a small bit of roadwork. Ponies do not need to be shod, as long as they can deal with some stoney tracks.
There is no cost associated with this ride, but a minimum donation of £10 to go to the Grass Sickness Fund is requested. Riders are asked to bring a packed lunch, and headcollar for their pony.
If you would like to attend this event, please contact Jean via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or 07752 972 452 so that she is able to guage numbers. If you are attending the faster ride, please be tacked up and ready to depart at 10.30am, and for the slower ride 10.45am.The postcode for the venue is KY14 7HT.
