Booking Rallies, Dress Code & Etiquette

Booking Rallys:

Dear Members………. 

Pony Club accept direct banking for the payment of rallies and other
activities. It’s easy and quick for you to do and will save us 
handling and banking cash and cheques.
In order for us to control training places and to ensure your payment is properly
processed please continue to book and arrange with Moe Conneeley or Sarah Parkhouse 
either by Email moeconneeley@yahoo.com   sjparkhouse@hotmail.co.uk or by phoning Moe on 01404 841147 or Sarah on 07788 375023. They will confirm your booking and provide you with the following.
 The amount due to be paid
 Our bank name, sort code and account number
 A unique invoice number (a letter followed by two digits) for that payment.
You can then pay direct but please ensure that you quote the invoice number
followed by as much of your surname as your bank reference system allows.
Without the invoice number we will not be able to identify payments appearing in our
accounts so don’t try paying money without first contacting Moe.
Make sure you check the account number and sort code is correctly entered as
some banks will not accept liability for misdirected payments!

Thank you for your continued support.

 

We are really proud and pleased to organise such a varied and high quality programme of rallies and events that are available to all our members.

We have worked hard to ensure we book good venues which are located across our region making it easier for everyone to attend rallies local to you. As a club, we are committed to using some of the area’s best Instructors who are well qualified, Pony Club Accredited and child friendly!

Whatever level you are or discipline you enjoy, we hope there is something for everyone. All members are welcome and encouraged to attend the club’s rallies, your support is vital!
