  • NEW Mounted games – come and join us.   East Kent Pony Club are training for Mounted Games at Blue Barn starting on Friday 16 January, from 6.30-7.30pm, Cap £5. They don’t have a large amount of members training so some of our AVHPC members (Jefferson-Pillai, Vane and McGinley) joined them and had great fun.  We have a long way to go before we go out in public but it was good to get the ponies out with others.  The cafe at Blue Barn is open and its a friendly social evening.  It would be lovely if some more Ashford Valley members joined in to give it a go and together we could perhaps make up some teams for the friendly competitions and generate more interest in this discipline.    Lisa is the main organiser and her contact details are:  Tel: 07837 636952 Email: thompsonduo1@tiscali.co.uk

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.

Changes to hat rules from December 2015
