Calling all members planning to take their C and C+ tests this summer.

Please be aware that before C test you need to take the Road Rider Achievement Badge and before C+ test you need to take either the Pony Club Road Safety Certificate or the British Horse Society Riding and Road Safety Test.

It is important that you attend for 2 hours on Tuesday 7th to train and collect the book that you need to study in order to pass.

Please telephone Dee Manford 07809 047463 or email if you wish to book in for either of these tests or the next BHS tests being held at Coldblow, Maidstone 30th July or Herstmonceux on 2nd August.

3 Day Rally Booking Form 2015

Bring along your unwanted tack and equine equipment as there will be a tack sale, where you can buy and sell 2nd hand tack.




Are then any under 8 on 1/1/2015 who would like to do the tetrathlon on Sat/Sun 25/26 July at Tonbridge and Eridge Park
girls or boys mixed teams.
They will throw bean bags, swim for 2 mins on Saturday and ride XC 30/45 cm and run 500m on Sunday, parents may accompany children on the xc.

My only plea is that you can swim a length in a 25m pool, you can have an outside lane. This is not a competition for nervous swimmers as I want them to enjoy it and come back again.

We have 16 older ones doing it but I seem to have lost my young ones, actually they all shoot now and are mini minis.

Please contact me if you want to give it a go. There is also one at Delmonden the following week. or ring 01797 227253

Visit the TET page for more details

You have to have shoot training before you compete at tetrathlon.
To shoot in competition you have to be 8, under 8s do bean bag throwing.



Don’t forget to make sure your horse or ponies vaccinations are up to date… More and more venues require them and if you don’t have them you risk your child not being able to compete..


The Pony Club has decided that from 2015 and going forward thereafter,

subscriptions will fall due on: 1st FEBRUARY

This means that some other dates have also moved:

Accordingly, any membership that is not paid up and renewed before 28th February 2015 will be deemed to have lapsed and insurance cover will cease.

All members who wish to be considered for area teams MUST be fully paid up members by 28th February 2015. (This is a national not a branch rule)

The 2015 renewal form asks for age  as at 1.2.15 (instead of 1st Jan) I have attempted to clarify this with HQ and have been assured that the Pony Club will continue to calculate age from 1st January.

You will be reminded in January!

The subs will be £64 individual / £160 family.

Any questions please get in touch:


Making a Payment Online

Peta Marsh, RMPC treasurer, has put together a system to enable payment to be made for Pony Club events, training etc by Bank transfer.

Please take a few moments to read it through. Peta will be available at the AGM to answer any questions you may have.

Please note: if you are unable to pay by this method cheques and cash will still be accepted.

 Click Here for the payment page, this can also be found under General Information/Making a Payment on the left hand sidebar.


European Riding Hat standards are now being changed in 2015

Dear Pony Club Member,

As you may already be aware European Riding Hat standards are now being changed in 2015 and after the 31 December 2015 The Pony Club will not be allowing Members to take part in their activities using riding hats which are only marked with the standard (BS)EN1384. We would suggest that if you are going to buy a new hat you ensure it is also marked with one of the other standards allowed under The Pony Club rules so that they can continue to use it in 2016.

Hats which only meet the standard (BS)EN1384 can be used in 2015 but will not be retagged with one of the new white hat tags during 2015, they will continue to be tagged with a purple hat tag to allow them to be used during 2015. If you require advice and guidance regarding hat tagging you should speak to your nominated Branch hat taggers.


Hat Rule 2015

Important Notice Regarding the Withdrawal of EN 1384

Following the withdrawal of EN 1384, manufacturers are preparing to produce hats to an improved standard which is expected to be in line with PAS 015:2011. Hats will continue to be manufactured and kitemarked to BS EN 1384: 2012 for 12 months or more and may be available on the market place to the end of 2016.

We anticipate hats manufactured to the new standard to become available late in 2015 or early 2016.

It is our understanding that hats manufactured and kitemarked to PAS 015: 2011 will continue to be available because this is an improvement upon BS EN 1384: 2012.

These changes do not affect the AS/NZS 3838: 2006 with the SAI mark or the SNELL standard.
