This charming film from Lena Partridge shows the activities of a pony club livery in the New Forest. We see riders of all ages setting off from the livery across a busy road after which we see a very small child riding her own little pony in the back garden. This is followed by the gathering of a hunt with hounds and various gymkhanas featuring cross-country events and show-jumping. We then see children at their own gymkhana and a couple of newly born calves delighting the family.
