Area Quiz (February) and Horse & Pony Care (April) – For the last two years we have fielded teams for both of these Area events – pretty successfully!  Both predictably have a host of eligibility rules – go to the main pcuk website for full details (I did put links on the email I sent but it seems cyber space ate them on the way!!)If you would be interested in training for these events, it isn’t as bad as it sounds and will of enormous help if you are also looking to take efficient tests next year, not to mention improve your horse care knowledge. Both events are great fun and have opportunities to get to the Championship!!!

 

If you are interested in both or one please let me know asap – if I don’t have sufficient people by 14thNovember I will assume there isn’t any interest and sadly won’t be able to field a team.

 

Thank you

Lesley
