For the first time this year we entered the Musical Themed Ride Competition. We used the Ugly Duckling story and music as our theme. The riders all enjoyed dressing up and taking part unfortunately it poured with rain when it came to recording the ride. However, we were thrilled when we came third in the Regional Finals and the DVD of our ride has been put forward to the National Championships.
We have just heard that The Ugly Duckling came 5th at the National Championships which is fantastic news. Well done to all our riders and helpers.
Arts and Craft Competition
The Group also entered a sculpture in the Arts and Craft Competition. We used mod rock to make casts of all the riders and volunteers hands and then made casts of Buddy's hooves. He was so good just standing still until the mod rock dried. The casts were then painted and joined together in a circle.
Our completed model was entitiled "Together everybody achieves more".
We were really pleased when we won the Regional Section of the competition. However we were over the moon when we came first at the Nationals and so proud of our riders and volunteers.
