South Shropshire Hunt Branch of the Pony Club
Summer Programme 2014
The Spring programme was well received by you with good attendance at most of the events and rallies.
There is a lot going on over the coming months and our instructors are hoping that you will be able to make the training sessions and rallies they are putting on for you.
Our One Day Event on Sunday 22nd June is an important day for us. A big ‘thank you’ to the ODE committee for getting it organised. Please offer your help both before, on and after the day.
We will be entering teams at the Area Dressage, Show Jumping and Eventing Competitions this year and we wish all those representing us every success. Please see Area Team Information Sheet for further details. If you are able to, do try and go along to support them and for newer and younger members it’s great for you to see what you should be aiming for.
You can still pay online if you want to. If you do want to use BACS please make sure you transfer the money when you book with Sharon Corke. We are also asking you to send a copy of the booking email to Mary Davies (our treasurer), firstname.lastname@example.org to make it easier for her to allocate money to the appropriate rally.
There is a lot for you to do this Summer and if you have any queries don’t hesitate to ring or e-mail me.
Looking forward to seeing you all soon
