Have all Pony Club activities stopped?

Following the directive from the government to minimise social contact and non-essential travel, The Pony Club Board of Trustees took the difficult decision to stop all Pony Club Activities. This includes our centrally organised Winter Triathlon and Winter Dressage, Show Jumping and Quiz series.  Until further notice, we are asking that branches and centres review all their activities, please see the advice from our insurers below. We are promoting the health and welfare of our members, their families and our volunteers. Branches and Centres are sharing many innovative ideas such as online learning, quizzes and competitions.

Where can I find further information about the virus?

The Government’s Coronavirus (COVID-19) webpage is frequently updated as things develop, so please check it regularly at www.gov.uk/coronavirus

Equine Flu  Latest
With cases of equine influenza continuing to be reported, Members are reminded that it is essential to have their horse’s flu vaccinations up to date before attending any Pony Club activity. If a horse has not been vaccinated appropriately, it may not attend a Pony Club event to protect the health of the other Members’ horses and those of the hosting venue. 

The seven-day clearance period, between having the vaccination and attending an event, continues to apply (see point 7 of the vaccination rule on page 30-31 of the Health and Safety rulebook).

If it has been more than six months since your horse has been vaccinated, then the British Equestrian Federation recommendation is to consult your vet. Find out more by accessing Health and Safety page from menu at left hand side.
