  • Around the Grounds RALLY PACK-UP AND SET UP

    As the old saying goes “Many Hands Make Light Work”. It is for this reason we ask for parent support/help with set up/pack-up at the start and end of each Rally whichever lesson your child is participating in at the end of the day, please help pack-up, Clean-up and put away. Whether it be show jumping, games, dressage or cross country – if equipment was used, it needs to be packed up and put away. Thanks for your help! ☺

  • Colour this picture in and hand in to Mikaela at clubrooms during lunch and get a chocolate Name: Age: What rally:

  • President’s report- A year ago I put my hand up for the president role, wow how time flies. I urge all parents to at some time to put their hands up for a role on the committee as it is very rewarding. Over the last year we have seen our numbers multiply and our little club go from strength to strength. I would like to thank the current committee for all their hand work and dedication to the club. Without them our children wouldn’t have a pony club to represent. This rally is our AGM it will be held just after lunch. I had wished to have the arenas complete during this past year but working with councils can be slow. We are very close now and they should be complete by the end of the financial year. Just a small reminder that we have a lunch order system for the canteen and to include guests when ordering lunch please. Also if you are expecting visitors that may stay for lunch please email the secretary a few days before the rally to ensure we can cater for them. Hope the weather holds out for the rally. Damian


  • DC Report-

    Hoping everyone had a good Easter and Easter Bunny found you. This rally we have the lovely Jorda replacing


    Last month Libby, Jasmine, Jessica H and Bridgette successfully completed their “C” certificate with flying colors.

    The examiner was very impressed with the girls’ knowledge and riding ability and told me that she had passed

    them hours ago but was having too much fun with them to stop. Well done girls the club is very proud.

    Mary’s preparation for the girls was brilliant, we are very lucky to have such high caliber instructors.

    Can everyone please ensure they sign their child in at the beginning of each rally, also each rider must have a

    designated adult present all day. If you are required at any time to leave you must nominate another adult and

    let both the instructor know and the DC. This needs to be documented in the sign in book.

    Pony club rules also state that mounts cannot be swapped during a rally. A rider can have two horses but must be

    gear checked on both, but a horse cannot have two or more riders during the rally. This rules applies to pony

    club competitions also.

    Please everyone read this month’s rider profile this the first time we have featured a committee member!

    Check out Keely and Taboo at the end of the newsletter, great effort.
