Hipica Formentor provides after-school riding activities for the international school called MySchool in Crestatx every week during term time. Last Christmas we gave pony rides at the Christmas Fair and we’ve just done the same thing at the end of term Summer Fair. There weren’t just pony rides but a tombola, children’s games, throwing the wet sponge, singing, dancing and a barbecue supper.
We took our gentlest and most friendly horses and the children and even one mum had a great time making four circles around the school field for 1€ a time. To make it more fun Lorenzo, Dan and Mary, who were leading the horses, broke into a trot themselves to add a bit of speed. It was a beautiful summer evening and everyon including the horses had lots of fun. We raised 85€ which has been donated to the Refugio de Animales de Pollença.
