What fun! 17 brilliant 2019 Pony Club camp moments to savour

With the summer holidays in full swing, for pony-mad children this can mean only one thing — Pony Club camp.

From tiny tots on the lead-rein up to serious young competitors, Pony Club camp provides the opportunity for children to fully immerse themselves in horse (or pony) heaven.

Here we round up just a few of the Pony Club camp highlights on social media from around the UK…

THIS is why I LOVE my job!⁠⠀ – I was one of those kids in school around 14, I really knew what I wanted to do. I knew I loved my camera and my horses, obviously indefinitely. I wanted to do equine portrait photography.⁠⠀ I was wrong, I also would end up making some littlies and their parents very happy, myself too by capturing these fab memories.⁠⠀ -⁠⠀ Sometimes you think you know what you want until you do something else. I never once imagined I'd be an event photographer until 5-6 years ago.⁠⠀ -⁠⠀ I really do love this job. Even if it does make me want my own mini me!⁠⠀ -⁠⠀ Last camp thursday! <3 Although I am a zombie, I will miss them as that is it for this cluster of summer ones.⁠⠀ -⁠⠀ -⁠⠀ -⁠⠀ -⁠⠀ All rights reserved image not to be used without permission of @marthalilyphotog⁠⠀ -⁠⠀ -⁠⠀ -⁠⠀ -⁠⠀ -⁠⠀ -⁠⠀ -⁠⠀ -⁠⠀ -⁠⠀ -⁠⠀ -⁠⠀ -⁠⠀ -⁠⠀ -⁠⠀ -⁠⠀ -⁠⠀ -⁠⠀ -⁠⠀ #horsephotographer #ponyclubcamp ⁠⠀ #equinephotography #ponyclubphotographer #equines #equestrian #horsesofinstagram #horsenature #equestrianlife ⁠⠀ #bestofequines #instahorse #smallandsupercharged ⁠⠀ #ponyclublove #ponyclub⁠⠀ #ponyclublove #marthalilyphotography⁠⠀ #youngdreamer #funnypony #ponytongue #smallandsuperchargedmastermind #myruralbusiness #equinephotographer #equineportraits ⁠⠀ #Shropshirephotographer #smallbiz #rain #smallbusinesswoman #shemeansbusiness #ukbusinesswoman #girlboss⁠⠀
