Hunting 2021

Please read the following information which tells you what to do if your child is going to hunt. No child under 12
is to come out hunting unaccompanied. Children of 12 (or nearly 12) are encouraged to take their hunting certificate and should also have their C Test. Our Hunting Representative is Emily Pain, if you have any questions please do contact her 07403 080806

Parents & Children please read carefully

Berkeley Hunt Pony Club members are very welcome out hunting
, but in view of the risks involved those coming out without parents to accompany them MUST follow these strict instructions:

You must ALL telephone Mr Whittaker, 07970 992958 or email, the Hunt Secretary, to ask permission to come out (other than the Childrens’ Meets)

Those who have not passed their Hunting Test MUST be accompanied by an adult at all times, a slightly older sibling who has passed their Hunting Test is NOT enough. Any child looking after a younger sibling should be at least 16. This also applies on Childrens’ Meets. If your parents do not hunt and you have no adult who will be responsible for you, please telephone Emily Pain and discuss the situation with her, and she will look for an adult to guide you.  ALSO, whether you have passed your Hunting test or not and you have a pony that you have not hunted before, you must go with an adult the first time to make sure the pony is safe. Any child not in control will be asked to go home.


Please can you make sure that all children have a card in their pocket , with their name, address and emergency contact phone number.Also to have these details on their mobile phone .

If your child is hunting unaccompanied please follow on foot/in a car.
