East Galway Hunt Branch Camp Report
East Galway pony club members had a fantastic week at camp in Gurteen college this year - our week long residential included an endless array of activities. The riding activities included games, dressage, showjumping, cross country and everyone's favorite the "Chase me Charlie" competition at the end of the week. The ponies were delighted to get a break on occasion as the kids took advantage of the fabulous facilities in Gurteen including swimming, badminton, ziplines, soccer, bouncing castles, pet rabbits, puppies, toasting smores and even make up sessions (the boys skipped this one). All members were a credit to their club and it was great to see older members helping out the newer members during the week. There were many tired kids and ponies after such an exciting week but lifelong memories and friendships were made. Big thanks to all our instructors, Gurteen college, the catering staff, parents and our DC Ruth for all the organizing.
