Hunting notes for PC members:

  1. Members with ‘C’ Test and above are welcome on any hunting days providing they understand the rules and etiquette of hunting.
  2. It is essential a responsible mounted adult accompany all members who have not attained ‘C’ Test.
  3. Horse/Ponies find hunting very exciting and do not always behave themselves so if you have any doubts please come with a mounted helper – even if you hold ‘C’ Test or above.
  4. Please wear your Pony Club badge and appropriate test felt and your medical armband.
  5. Your help with opening and shutting gates is particularly appreciated. All PC Members who hunt will be expected to ‘do their turn’ and will be notified in advance; children will be teamed up with an adult so not left to do it alone.
  6. Costs are as follows (these terms apply to all meets):
    > Parent & child not holding C Test may hunt together at combined rate of £60 per day for up to 4 days hunting in any one season.
    > Field money after opening meet is £10 for each child.
    > Children of farmers £5 all season.
  7. Please put your Field Money into an envelope with your name on the outside and make sure you give this to either Nancy Blinkhorn or Gina/Malcolm Mills at the meet.
  8. Please do not post any details of locations / times of meets onto Social Media.
  9. Pony Club contact for any hunting matters is Kate Mather.
