The Argyll Adventure annual Hallowe’en Gymkana weekend proved a popular hit with riders once again.

The well-attended event saw over 50 people come along over November 2 and 3, dressing up to join in the fun.

A great time was had by all and the weekend of spooktacular fun saw the children’s hard work and learning come together in a fun filled morning of riding games.

Andy Cameron of Argyll Adventure said: ‘Everyone made such an effort with the fancy dress and although the morning was about fun and bringing groups together that don’t see each other often, it was also a chance for the children to demonstrate their riding abilities they have gained over the previous months, under the fantastic instruction of Annika.

‘Special thanks to all the parents and carers who turned out over the weekend to support the spooktacular fun and games. I am so grateful to my team and everyone in the Argyll Pony Club that is making it a real success.’
