The Broom Polo Teams at Tumpy Green’s 10th Anniversary

The Friends of Tumpy Green held their second Annual Demonstration Evening recently and it was an extra special occasion which also celebrated ten years of Renee and Naomi Watkins running the Riding School at Cam in Gloucestershire.

It was a real family fun evening which included Broom Polo, a back health demonstration by Rachel Harber, a shoeing demo by Simon Vatcher,  a quadrille display by Renee, Naomi, Tammy & Tanya, ferret racing, Shetland racing and a driving display.

Friends of Tumpy Green is a group of volunteers who aim to fund raise, socialise and support Tumpy Green Equestrian Centre and last year they donated £1000 to the Great Western Air Ambulance through a wide range of activities from sponsored rides and dog shows, to wine tastings.

During the demonstration evening Renee and Naomi were presented with a special certificate marking their 10th year of running a Riding School. They were also presented a book of memories, which included photos through the years, and special memories from those who have ridden at the school over the last 10 years.

The evening was a great success and reflected how strongly everyone feels about supporting Tumpy Green Equestrian Centre. There was a huge sense of pride from all involved.
