Courageous young children from the Wexford Pony Club have won the Irish Pony Club Spring League mounted games at a competition in Waterford, Curraghmore after their sheer determination.

Following four rounds of competitions in Kildare, Coolboy, Ballybrennan and Waterford the under 10 and junior teams ended up with the highest points much to parents delight.

The neighbouring club 'The Islands' were on their heels throughout the league but Wexford riders managed to pull it off on the day.

Wexford Pony Club have only restarted mounted games in 2015 and all riders have worked tirelessly to improve their accuracy and speed.

The club's success is due to the hard work and commitment of pupils and parents which has been guided by the area representative Helen Deathe who has given the club great support.
