MEMBERS of Pole Moor Riding Club dressed up to look scary for Halloween!
They then rode around Bolster Moor searching for spooks that were hiding in trees, bushes and walls.
The ponies entered into the 'spirit' of things and helped their young riders with the hunt.
The riders who collected the most spooky items won rosettes and a prize.
Fancy dress was also judged and the riders went away with big smiles, rosettes and prizes.
Hot-dogs were then served with yummy pumpkin soup to round off the fun filled day.
Winner of lead-rein Fancy Dress – Annabella Hart on Smurf (as a witch riding a wizard-pony) from Golcar.
Winner of Ridden Fancy dress – Jenny Turner on Whisper (two little devils) from Scapegoat Hill.
