Letter from our new DC, Sue Binns

Dear All

As you already know, it has taken some time for our bank to make the minor changes required to allow me to take over as The District Commissioner of The Grafton Hunt Pony Club.

I am very honoured to be able to do this and cannot thank Joanna enough for all her hard work and for the great position she has left our Branch in, the goodwill and camaraderie and friendship is so evident and I will appreciate all your support in the future.

It is great that I have such a wonderful committee and of course, none of this would be at all possible without Clare Smith taking over the Treasurers role from me – not an entirely easy job!

As I adjust to this role if you  have any questions, suggestions, or indeed criticisms, please speak to me or email me.

I will be out and about at all rallies and events over the Christmas period so please feel free to introduce yourself, as I am aware that I do not know ALL of you, especially those with younger children!

Moving forward, there will be announcements regarding camp dates, team training, grassroots/development squad training and I would like to get The Grafton Hunt Pony Club out representing our Branch at local competitions.

Best wishes

Sue

Please ensure that all riding hats comply with the Pony Club standards and are tagged with a 2018 AQUAMARINE hat tag for all pony club activities.  Jo Lee or Sue Binns can tag any hats that haven’t been done so yet.  For more detailed information see http://www.pcuk.org/uploads/Hat_Rule_2018_FINAL.pdf
Body protectors are compulsory for all Cross Country and Pony Racing activities, and as a Branch we prefer to see them used at all times when mounted.  Body protectors must meet BETA 2009 Level 3 standard, and carry this label: http://branches.pcuk.org/area8/files/2015/04/BETA-2009-Body-Protector-standard-127×300.jpg
