Committee and contacts

The Beaufort Hunt Pony Club has a hard working committee which meets several times a year to make overall planning decisions on competitions, rallies, camps, training, social events and all things relating to our club activities. We would like to take this opportunity to introduce you to the current committee members in case you are not sure who they are. If you ever have any questions, suggestions, complaints or compliments – please speak to anyone on the list below. If you would like your comment or idea to be discussed at a future committee meeting, please put it in writing as well to our DC, Jane Humphreys. A letter is useful to make sure important items don’t get overlooked when everyone is very busy during the summer months. We are here to help you and to work on your behalf so please do stay in touch.
