BERKELEY HUNT SOUTH PONY CLUB

The Pony Club statement on Covid-19 – updated 16th March

The Pony Club Board of Trustees has been in discussion today and has made the very difficult decision to cancel all centrally organised events.

This includes the Winter Triathlon at Stoke Mandeville on Sunday 22nd March and The Winter Series Final at Arena UK 4th / 5th April.

Following The Prime Minister’s announcement this evening, requesting that we minimise social contact and non-essential travel, we advise that ALL Pony Club activities cease with immediate effect.

We would like to thank our members, parents and volunteers for their support of The Pony Club in this decision to play our part in preventing the spread of Covid-19.  

Please continue to stay safe and well during this difficult time. 

We will keep you updated as soon as we have any further information.

Berkeley Hunt South: ​

Area H and PC training and ALL events on the programme are cancelled until further notice. 

As you can see we are asked to cancel all rallies and other training, for the time being. We had already been considering how we replace our face to face training and will be sending out worksheets and notes for ALL test training levels, so we continue to support our members training for Care. Please also refer to the syllabus for your next test level, available on the PC website for the Ridden section and continue to practice at home, we will support your training through our discipline managers and instructors. Training suggestions will be given for ALL members, whether you want to take a test or not, so we can continue to learn collectively. We will contact members to let you know when we are starting to send out infomration. We will also send out activities for our younger members so we can stay connected, keep learning and enjoy our ponies. We want to see what you are doing, so our fb page and other social media accounts will be busy!

Thank you for your understanding, we are committed to supporting training and staying connected as a branch family though this challenge.

Sending you all our very best wishes, take care.

As a branch within Pony Club Area 9, Berkeley Hunt South is a friendly and fun loving branch. There are lots of opportunities for members to get involved (have a look on our programme page to get an idea of the sort of things we get up to).

The more you get involved the more you will get out of your Pony Club, so sign up for rallies and encourage your parents to volunteer to help with anything from baking a cake to helping at our summer show. Volunteers always welcome! 

We hold three camps a year, two are non-residential and one is a fabulous residential camp at Stockland Lovell.

Becoming a Pony Club Member also gives you Public Liability Insurance cover. Please read the Pony Club Key Facts document which provides a summary of cover, available on the main PC website – Parents information/Members Insurance section. You can join at anytime throughout the year.
