Dear All

As you will have seen in the weekly update, we’re being asked to keep a system in place following the EHV outbreaks. 
The system I’m suggesting, so this doesn’t become OTT and a massive paper chase, is for Branches to have one copy of the completed form held on line for each horse/pony attending an event.  Once there’s a copy on file, they confirm when booking each rally that the conditions on the form as far as the health of the horse/pony are still current.
If you are holding an open show/fun ride/event you may then ask all attendees to complete the form, or just those who are not your members, for whom you’ll already hold a copy, so a declaration would suffice.
Hopefully that makes sense and is an appropriate system to maintain good bio-security practice.
Maybe some training on how to take your horses temperature would be a good thing to do.

Safeguarding is a key issue for us all. Please take a moment to read carefully through the Pony Club Safeguarding pages, as they are full of useful information.

The Pony Club is a member of the British Equestrian Federation, and has adopted the Safeguarding & Child Protection Policy of the BEF. This may be found here.

All Branch Officials should attend a Safeguarding Workshop every two years, as must Instructors. Safeguarding Workshops are hosted by Branches and delivered by our Area Representative.

How to host a safeguarding course

All Branches, Centres and Areas can apply to host a Safeguarding and Protecting Children workshop. In return for organising the workshop and paying for the venue hire, the hosting Branch / Centre / Area will receive a £60 credit. Payment for places booked on the course is collected by the office. The trainer’s fees and expenses are paid by the office.

Step 1 – Contact the trainer (contact details attached) to organise a suitable date and time.

Step 2 – Book a venue that can comfortably hold 20 people, has electricity and a blank wall to project on to. Please ensure the room has heating for colder days / evenings.

Step 3 – Complete the workshop booking form (attached) and return, by email, to stefanie.brazier@pcuk.org.

Step 4 – An online entry page will be made available via the website for people to book onto the course.

Places cost £20 per person. Courses will only run if there is a minimum of 12 attendees. The maximum number of attendees per course is 20-24 depending on the venue. Once you have booked your places, remaining spaces will be publicised to the rest of your Area.

An attendance sheet will be sent to the organiser by email for all attendees to sign in. A copy (original, scan or photo) should be returned to the office within 7 days of the course. Certificates are issued according to this list and will be sent by post, to the addresses provided by attendees, after the attendance sheet has been received at the office.

Do you need to update your Safeguarding certificate before activities resume?
We have a series of the virtual ‘Safeguarding for Equestrians’ courses arranged from April to September.
The course is suitable for individuals who coach, volunteer or work for The Pony Club to meet your safeguarding training requirement. The virtual sessions are being delivered in place of the in-person courses. Those who are attending their initial course or refreshing their knowledge are encouraged to attend.
Places cost £25 per person. You can book your place by clicking on the date of interest below.
