Well that’s it…..all done!!! We had an amazing time at Somerford Park this year.  We had 36 pony club members altogether including some friends from Haydock Park and Rockwood Harriers.  Massive thank you to everyone who helped make the camp the success that it was.  We had wonderful instructors, Sam, Gaynor, Jeanette, Tracey, Simone, Amy and Chelsea who taught our members over the cross country and farm ride, over show jumps in the arena and flat work and even some mounted games.  Evenings were filled with mini Olympics, football and rounders and of course our practices for our musical ride finale with Steven. Thank you so much to our volunteers and parents – we couldn’t do it without you.  It truly was an amazing few days, here are some of our pictures….

2015 Camps

Not long now till our July 2015 camp…. a few members still haven’t returned the completed paperwork….please do so urgently.  You cannot take part in camp unless these documents are sent back.

As most of you know by now, our Mums and Minis (and dads) Camp was a huge success – lots of pictures are on face book.  The weather was kind most of the time and everyone had a fabulous time and made tremendous progress.  Thank you to everyone who came, camped and helped.

Save the date for next year Tuesday 31st May till Saturday 4th June 2016.

So is our July camp going to be even better?????

We are having a camp meeting on Tuesday 16th June 7.30 – 9pm.

The meeting will be the same place as last year which is A E Yates Trenchless Solutions, 6B Cranfield Road, Lostock Industrial Estate, Lostock Bolton. BL6 4SB.

We are potentially over subscribed for July camp. Elaine can book some overflow stables if she does so by Friday 12th June.  It is essential that you confirm your place and pay your deposit by Friday 12th June.  If you don’t then we will assume you are not coming and book stables accordingly.

It is really important that you attend the meeting.  We will be issuing kit lists, talking about this years camp, taking sizes for camp t shirts, orders for new kit etc. Any ideas you have for camp can be discussed at the meeting too.

Please bring along with you your final camp balances and completed forms.

Also if anyone has any kitchen utensils you no longer need please donate them to pony club, Somerford Park don’t provide anything in the kitchen.  Please bring anything you can spare with you.

All the forms you need can be downloaded here.
