>Pontispool 2 Day Residential Camp (XC training) – 4-6 April 2016

Booking Form for Residential Camp at Pontispool 2016

Pontispool 2 Day  Residential Camp (XC training)  – Monday 4th – Wednesday 6th April 2016

Venue: Pontispool, Norton Fitzwarren, Taunton TA4 1BH

Price Child: £190 – to include stabling, accommodation, all meals and 8 hrs of instruction

Price Adult £90 – to include accommodation and all meals

 

MPC Residential Camp at Pontispool will take place from Monday 4th – Wednesday 6th April 2016.  Pontispool is a popular venue and in 2016 we are opening our Camp to other branches in Area 9.  We will be sharing the facilities at Pontispool with the Mendip Farmers branch but have 20 places on offer, so if you would like to attend you will need to book your place quickly.
Chris and Lucy Mitford Slade have very kindly offered to help me organise this again and we are keen to encourage ALL members who are in school year 7 or above. The XC course at Pontispool is extensive and has many jumps from 70 cm up to 1m 15 including several water jumps, steps, banks and ditches. It’s a great way to get your horse going at the beginning of the season at what ever level you are competing or if you have not competed much before, but would like some training before you start.  The link below provides you with more information:

http://www.pontispool.co.uk

This year we plan to run the 2 days in the same format as before so that we arrive at lunch time on Monday 2nd, ride for 2 hours that afternoon, ride 2 hours both Tuesday morning and  afternoon then 2hrs again on Wednesday morning, which means that we will be able to leave after lunch on Wednesday.
Weather permitting we will be making use of the XC course for the 2 days, however there is also a large outdoor arena with a course of show jumps, a water jump and steps if anyone wants to have a change from the XC.

The cost for members will be £190 to include accommodation for riders and their horses, 8 hours of tuition and all meals.

The cost for adults will be £90 per person which includes all meals and accommodation in a shared cabin, there is an option of a shared deluxe cabin at an extra cost.

Attending a residential camp should be an all round experience where caring for your horse is as much a part of the day as riding, members who stay with out parents will be under full supervision, will learn a lot more and usually have a very good time.

Any parents who wish to attend may do so in an official capacity and there fore should hold a current First Aid certificate, have had a recent DBS check and attended a PC Safeguarding course with in the past 2 years.

We need to pay Pontispool a deposit and give a rough idea of numbers, so if you would like to attend please let me know before the 15th December, then in order to confirm your place you will need to pay a deposit of £50 to Minchinhampton Pony Club before 15th January.

The address and post code for Pontispool is Norton Fitzwarren, Taunton. TA4 1BH.

I look forwards to hearing from you.
