-Clipping manes and tails when necessary - very easy and they seem to find it relaxing!
-Getting 4-5 ponies ready for chukkas on Wednesdays and Fridays. Chukkas start at 4pm and can finish 5/5,30pm depending on how many people are on the list to play.
-Getting 4-5 ponies ready for Sunday morning chukkas at 10am I play chukkas when I'm not playing matches Otherwise instead of chukkas I would be playing a match up to 1,2 or 3 times a week when there is a tournament on the job would include - Getting 4-5 ponies ready for matches when there is
a tournament on.
