Pony Club Camp 2023 

Andreas Airfield Sunday 23rd July – Thursday 27th July 

Camp will follow a very similar format to what we had last year to be held at our premises on the Andreas Airfield. 

There will be 2 camps to choose from again, 4-day camp is for high school aged children and above (there may be some of the younger members who will be invited to this camp based on their ability at the discretion of our chief instructor) and 2-day camp can be entered by any member. 

Rides will be split into ability and based on what the members have been competing at or towards. 


Please see below the 2023, Pony Club ruling on vaccinations – no unvaccinated horse or pony will be permitted to attend camp. 

The Pony Club Equine Influenza VACCINATION RULE 2023 – To protect the health of all horses and ponies and the biosecurity of the venue, the following rules will apply to all Pony Club activities. Events that are held at some venues may be subject to additional rules. e.g. any horse /pony entering a licensed racecourse property must comply with the vaccination requirements as set by the British Horseracing Authority.  

  1. Passports A valid passport and vaccination record: • must accompany the horse / pony to all events • must be available for inspection by the event officials • must be produced on request at any other time during the event
  2. No horse / pony may should attend an activity, compete or be present at the event as a companion unless it has a Record of Vaccination against equine influenza completed by the veterinary surgeon who gave the vaccination, signed and stamped line by line, which complies with the Minimum Vaccination Requirements set out in the Equine Influenza Vaccination Schedule below:
  3. Equine Influenza Vaccination Schedule: • An initial primary course of two vaccinations must be given: the second vaccination must be administered within 21-92 days of the first vaccination. • Horses may attend events 7 days after receiving the second vaccination of the primary course. (for clarity: no horse or pony may compete on the same day as a relevant injection is given or on any of the 6 days following such an injection) • The first booster must be administered within 7 calendar months following the date of the administration of the second vaccination of the primary course. • Booster vaccinations must be administered at a maximum of 12 months intervals.

Please note, as a result of vaccine shortage in 2022, and in line with other BEF Member bodies, the requirement for boosters to be within 6 months +21 days of Area level and above competitions has been suspended for 2023.  

4 Day Camp – arriving Sunday 23rd July late afternoon/early evening

This is a ‘stay-in’ camp and the members and their horses/ponies will be camping on the Airfield as last year.
