We would like to remind all coaches to go gently into the Pony Club summer. 

Members have not been out hunting, hunter trialing or competing. 

Both members and ponies need an opportunity to get into the Pony Club groove.

Keep an extra eye on fitness of both riders and ponies.

Give every member a chance to have fun, meet their friends before embarking on tests etc.

Be aware it may take awhile to get back to where we all were before Covid struck.

We have had some IT issues, and we are working to resolve these.
