A new digital coin meter has been installed to operate the flood lights. It takes all denominations of coins and has a digital display which gives the number of minutes of light that have been paid for. It has an audible alarm and a red light which gives 5 minutes warning before the lights are due to extinguish.

As the coin meter is so far away from the arena, you need to be listening and keeping an eye out for this. We are working on increasing both the volume of the alert and the brightness of the light.

It is the responsibility of the parents to make sure that there is adequate money in the meter and that the lights don’t go out when your child is riding. The price is £1 per 15 minutes.


We have been asked what the position is for members having private lessons at Moyallon. The answer is that any member is welcome to have a private lesson in any of the arenas in Moyallon, providing an official Pony Club activity is not taking place. This does not however, give you exclusive rights to the arena. Other riders are entitled to share the arena, we just ask that our members cooperate and accommodate each other, so that we can all enjoy the excellent facilities that Moyallon has to offer.



Reminder that hair must be in a hairnet or in a plait, (not a big bunch) and PC sweatshirt/white shirt/PC jacket to be worn with gaiters/boots or plain jodphurs. Be proud of your club!



Just a reminder that grounds at Moyallon are strictly and without exception for the use of current paid up 2017/2018 members and Moyallon cannot to be used on a Sunday.
