Co Down Stag Hounds have invited us as a pony club to a Drag Hunt on Saturday 21 October 2017 setting off from Iveagh pony club grounds at 12.30pm Sharp by kind permission of the Richardson’s.

The price is £10 per pony and all jumping is optional. This will give kids a great opportunity to try out hunting and should be well supported. Pony club members to park at Iveagh grounds where we will be met by the hunt.

Iveagh Halloween One Day Camps

We have conducted an online pole on our FaceBook page in relation to what the members would like to do at Pony Club over Halloween, the winning option was a “one day intensive clinic” over mid term at Halloween.

This will consist of a full day clinic from 10am to 4pm at Moyallon and will be used to work towards tests and achievement badges.There will be 2 riding sessions, theory and stable managment.

See attached application which needs returned by 23.10.17

Your child will be allocated at day over the mid term break – it will be either 30th Oct, 31st Oct or 2 Nov 2017

(C Test is 1st November, therefore we can slot in those doing their C Test on the Monday or Tuesday if required)

The groups will be small and we will only have a few groups per day at Moyallon to provide each group with the full range of facilities at Moyallon.

Halloween Clinic Application 2017




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.
