Refresh your safeguarding certification

Do you need to refresh your safeguarding certification after attending a face to face course?

Why not complete the online refresher in the comforts of your own home. This course is convenient for most in keeping your safeguarding up to date without having to attend another course during the cold and wet winter months. You can pause and return to the course at a later time depending on any time constraints or you can complete the course within a couple of hours. It is also accepted by other equestrian member bodies.

Interested? You can enrol for the online course today by clicking here.

Please note: your face to face certificate must not have expired by more than 1 month before completing the online refresher.

Russell Guire Road Show – Reaseheath College – Wednesday 11th October

As you may be aware we have a Russell Guire Road show coming up to Reaseheath College on Wednesday 11th October.

This does count at CPD for all coaches and makes a very interesting evening to attend. We received great feedback from the ones which were ran earlier on in the year and the audience was not just coaches but also members, parents and people who were not even associated to Pony Club.

This is a great opportunity to see Russell’s research close up and for a bargain price of £20 exclusively for PC, if you were to attend a day with him the ticket price will start from over £100 each!

Hopefully see you there on the evening.

Kind Regards,
