        Last Updated 17 April 2012
More information can be found by browsing our web pages - most of the pages will have content added to them regularly throughout the year. Latest news and updates can be found at the bottom of this page.  About Us gives you more detail about our Branch whilst Newsletters contains copies of all the  newsletters issued to date. Photos has the links to to the photos taken at events we have held or attended that are for sale and the Calendar page gives details of all forthcoming activities, rallies etc so keep checking these ones! Rally ‘Round is a new page and gives news and updates about our recent rallies and forthcoming events – this replaces the previous Mounted Games and Cross Country pages. Post Cards is where you will find write ups and photos of our “field (and beach) trips”  and away events, so please send in any write ups or photos you may have to Angela at the usual email address. What’s on Elsewhere is an area where you can find out about events that, whilst not run by our Branch or even by Pony Club at all, may still be of interest to you. Likewise if you know of any similar events let Angela have the details so that they can be included here for other members’ information.  Many of the old photos have now been removed to make way for lots of new ones that will no doubt be snapped this year. However if you would like copies of any of the photos, old and new, please let Angela know.

 Meanwhile let Angela know if there’s anything in particular you would like to see included ( – remember, it’s your site!

 Happy browsing!
