Message from Pony Club Office – As the mounted area competitions start this weekend and I have been asked by a couple of confused parents recently I thought I would remind everyone of the Pony Club rules regarding earrings (and any other piercings). The rule is very simple – these are not allowed in any form, at all, at any rally, camp or competition; regardless of tapes, plasters or anything else and riders will have to remove them before riding.  The rule book states:

” No jewelry is allowed for safety reasons, other than a wristwatch, a wedding ring, a stock pin worn horizontally or a tie clip.  It is recommended that stock pins are removed for cross country.  Members who are contemplating piercing their ears or any other part of their body should be aware that they will not be allowed to participate in any Pony Club mounted equestrian activity until such time as the “sleepers” can be safely removed.  The reason for this is that sleepers have in the past caused injuries following falls.”

Well done to our eventers!

Updated information about our pony club branch and the role of parents


Pony Prep Plus website from the Pony Club  The latest update to The Pony Club’s e learning system has launched today at Olympia, the London International Horse Show.  www.PonyPrepPlus.org is the next level of The Pony Club’s e learning site www.PonyPrep.org  Since launching in 2010, PonyPrep has been enjoyed by over 200,000 users working towards their D-C level Pony Club Efficiency Tests and has also won an e learning award, so it is very much hoped that PonyPrep Plus will enjoy the same level of success. PonyPrep Plus is based around the same concept as PonyPrep, enhancing the vocational training The Pony Club already offers, but as the next level on, it is based on The Pony Club’s C+ Efficiency Test and associated age bracket upwards, both in terms of content but also in look, feel and interactivity.
