The workshops provide fun and informative activities aimed at increasing knowledge and appreciation of horseracing, and Pony Club Members will be given access to normally restricted areas of the racecourse during the morning before watching live racing in the afternoon.

For those young people hoping to combine their love of horses with a future career, the team will provide details on a wide range of opportunities available in the racing and thoroughbred breeding industries too.

The events are taking place at:

4th April 2017 – Kempton Racecourse, Surrey
10th April 2017 – Redcar Racecourse, North Yorkshire
11th April 2017 – Pontefract Racecourse, West Yorkshire

Recent feedback

“The whole day was excellent from going behind the scenes, meeting a trainer, clerk of the course and the champion jockey! The team were knowledgeable and friendly, a great day.”

“Thank you so much to all involved in today. We as a family have had a fantastic day and a once in the lifetime opportunity to see behind the scenes. A very valuable day and I would highly recommend to others”

“An absolutely brilliant day for the children. Had I been younger it would have changed my career path. An opportunity not to be missed”

Spaces will be limited to a maximum of 30 at each event, so will be offered on a first come first served basis. Parents are welcome to join their child(ren) for the activities if they wish.

VWH Thanks DC for 40 Years with Club!

VWH Pony Club’s DC retires after 40 years with the club

                                               By Penny Comerford

 

Rhona 3VWH Pony Club and Hunt  has marked the retirement of a key figure with  a weekend of celebration for Mrs Rhona Reid, outgoing District Commissioner.

Mrs Rhona Reid has stepped down from her post as joint DC of the VWH , after 13 years in the top job and before that, many other roles in the branch, an involvement spanning 40 years.

To mark her retirement, Mrs Reid was presented with a stunning oil painting from her co-DC, Mrs Liza Dibble,(left) at a special VWH Pony Club awards evening in Cricklade Village Hall, attended by over 100 PC members and their parents. The picture, depicting a familiar scene at the ever-popular Pony Club Camp, summer holiday highlight for many children, was painted by former member Lucinda Wright.

A longstanding resident of Fairford, Glos , Mrs Reid first became involved with the local Pony Club when her two daughters, Alexandra and Victoria, joined the VWH branch in 1976. Unstintingly generous with her time, Mrs Reid soon became an all-round volunteer at the numerous Pony Club activities, before her procession of official posts saw her become joint DC of the VWH in 2003.

Addressing  PC members at the presentation, Liza Dibble thanked Mrs Reid for her contribution, saying,  “you have been a stickler for rules and always engendered respect from children and parents alike, but your incredible kindness and calm encouragement has been the mainstay of many a child’s Pony Club career over the past forty years, an incredible achievement.”

Festivities continued the next day when the VWH Hunt hosted a well-supported farewell lunch at  Oxleaze Barn ,Eastleach.  Treating Mrs Reid to a “This is Your Life” presentation, former VWH Hunt Master, Julian Weston, noted that she had been a keen hunt member herself, a stalwart of Fairford village activities and generous and dignified officer at the Pony Club where she had supported thousands of children in the development and love of horses and the countryside which had been the mainstay of her own rich life. Mrs Reid was officially thanked for her contribution to the Pony Club on both local and national levels by Mrs Pleasance Jewitt,  Area 9 Co-ordinator.

On behalf of the Hunt, Mr Weston  presented Mrs Reid with a beautiful teapot by Caroline Hill, hand – painted with scenes depicting the Reid family’s country life. She said, “ I have been overwhelmed by all the attention I have received as I draw in my reins and stand back from the Pony Club.  The VWH Hunt Branch has been a wonderful stepping stone to the big, wide world, and it is always a joy to share success with our past members.”

Despite relinquishing her official role, Mrs Reid will still be on hand to pass on her vast experience to the Pony Club and she has already volunteered to help at the VWH Horse Show, taking place at Kemble Park on May 29th   and open to members and non-members, children and adults.
