Dear all, 
Exciting times ahead as we are starting, as of this weekend, to send to PCUK our applications for teams and individuals for Area Pony Club Competitions (Grassroots/Novice/Intermediate and Open). In addition we are also thinking ahead to the Mini Champs. 
 
A number of considerations will be taken into account when making these applications. This includes, for example:
  • commitment to the training sessions (special dispensation has been made to those doing exams or have work commitments if previously discussed)
  • Instructor assessment and feedback
  • suitability of horse and rider combination in relation to each discipline 
  • obedience to the aids, particularly in relation to dressage
  • ability and potentially previous ability and experience

As you can appreciate, decisions relating to these aspects are never taken lightly. In addition we also have to ensure that we consider the interests of each child, pony/horse as well taking into account any family commitments that we are aware of.

As a committee we are determined to be sensitive and supportive so that every individual is able to achieve their potential whilst also ensuring that we are able to enter competitive and resilient teams. By this I mean regularly reviewing the ability of the individual so that we do not frighten them or over face them (or their steed) during this qualifying period or perhaps ahead if they should qualify for championships. 

Please also remember that training is NOT a rally and that each pony must have attended rallies in which to be eligible for team selection. 
 
Should any ponies or combinations have changed or any other wishes that we don’t know about have moved, please let Sarah Jane P or myself know before Monday.  
 
Email or Facebook message is fine. 
 
Thanks in advance and happy schooling. 
Helen Clarke
