90th Anniversary Book

Newhall Publishing with regards to the 90th Anniversary Book. There are two features we are working on that we would be grateful to have your assistance with in securing picture submissions.

Feature 1: What the Pony Club means to me

This is a pictorial feature where we’re looking for members of all generations to send in pictures of themselves and their ponies. Ideally including a caption of name, age and date of the image along with a short quote (approx 80 words). Additionally if you would like to put forward any photos that have a good story behind them or show the impact being part of Pony Club can have on people’s lives, we’d love to receive them.

Dry Tri at Mostyn on 15th June ’19

Please download the above attachment for Schedule and Entry Form

We try to make an event which is welcoming for the less experienced riders and ponies but will also offer a challenge to competent juniors. This is done by using an enclosed field for the younger classes, providing L options at the trickier jumps, and allowing competitors to ride at the level (or even 2 levels) below their own age group. There is no senior course but if there is sufficient demand we could offer a senior class over the junior jumps.

If you have any questions please get in touch.

Hope to see you there …. Penny
