With winter fast approaching we are looking for lots of activities to keep you and your pony active over the colder months:

Calendar – 

Evening training  BLOCK TWO for members working towards their next Pony Club Test. To be held at Kennaa Equestrian Centre with Hannah Goodby and Clare Drewry, Monday Evenings between 6 – 8.

During the 4 week block members will have one ridden session and one stable management session.

Members will be grouped according to age, ability and tests held.

Approx age 8, holders of D test working towards D+ 

Approx age 10 – 11, holders of D or D+ test working towards D+ or C 

Approx age 12+, Working towards C+ and above 

The cost for the block of sessions (1 ridden, 1 stable management is £20)

Places are limited (in order to keep small rides) entries for this block close on the 2th Nov at 8pm (or sooner if places are full) and timetable for the block will be available on 5th.



Polo sessions  Triskellion Polo Club really enjoyed running the taster session this week and hope you all enjoyed it too. For something a little different over the winter they are putting on a Junior session on the first Saturday of each month, starting in October. The sessions will be held at Grenaby Estates in the indoor and will be £10.00 for 1 hour. The sessions will be similar to last week but also open to suggestions. If you are interested in this or want to talk further about it please give Amy a ring on 353775
