Equine Flu Vaccinations

Please beware that all horses and ponies attending Camp must have an up to date Annual Flu Vaccination, but must be 6 days clear of that vaccination before attending Camp. For more information see attached PDF, or contact me. Don’t forget that any horses or ponies that you are planning to compete at the Area Competitions in July, MUST have had a Flu Vaccination with in the previous 6 months of the competition date.

General plan

Camp week will consist of 4 days of tuition and activities, from 10.00 to 4.00.
Ride Groups will be allocated on a combination of age and friendship groups, it must be noted that Camp week is about having fun and embracing the ethos of Pony Club –

  • To receive instruction in riding and horse mastership and to learn more about taking proper care of your horse or pony
  • To promote the highest ideals of sportsmanship, citizenship and loyalty
  • To show support to your friends and younger or less experienced members

Camp week is NOT about how high you can jump, or pushing your horse or pony to it’s limits – as such, the days will be split into mounted and unmounted activities.
Some members will be doing Tests during the week, including E, D, ‘D+’ & ‘C’ Riding, members taking these tests will be informed in advance and tuition will be given during the week. We will also be covering the ridden section of the Road Safety Achievement Badge – for those who have completed the theory section.

There will be no competition day this year, how ever we will be asking each ride to do a ‘video’ presentation, which will then be collated into a memory of Camp 2021

All Cups and Trophies awarded in 2019 must be returned to me (engraved and cleaned) before 1st July

This year trophies will be awarded for outstanding effort & behaviour, team work & support towards other members, plus lot’s of awards for your horses and ponies

Barbecue & Awards will be at 6.30pm on Saturday 31st July
