Frank is 13 years old and during the holidays he has been riding out with us twice a week.

His riding and confidence is improving with every ride.  Frank rides in pony races and hopes to ride point to point in a few years time.  Its great to have an up and coming rider at Helshaw.

Deborah is a very good rider and really enjoys riding out.
