Pony Club’s Hunting Certificate.

There are a number of Dumfriesshire Hunt Pony Club members who are keen to do their certificate, and part of this includes a visit to the kennels whereby they will be given a talk by the Master, followed by an oral assessment on what they have learned from the talk and also from the general questions sheet which will be emailed to members beforehand to study.

The full details are laid out in the link below:-    http://www.pcuk.org/tests_and_achievements/efficiency_tests/hunting_certificate/

There will be a pony club evening at the kennels at Kirkbean (between Dalbeattie and New Abbey) on Friday 24th July, which members interested in doing their hunting certificate should attend.

It is open to all Pony Club members though, whether they are wanting to do their hunting certificate or not.

I would be grateful if you could circulate this date to your members and let me know if you have any that are interested in attending, and if so how many of these are wanting to do their hunting certificate. Once I have an idea of numbers I will then send out a more detailed itinerary.

Kind regards,

Hannah Hutchings

Dumfriesshire & Stewartry Hunt Secretary.

If interested please text names to Susan Murdoch on 07876593868 and start your text HUNT.
