Would you like to do this for a day during a holiday

 

 

 

Would you like to do a weekly session on a Thursday

 

 

Would you like a session for younger members

 

 

 

What could we do to improve work experience

 

 

 

 

We have tried in the past of organising a play session for younger members to do before and after your holiday activities, until parents are able to collect them.

Would you be interested in your child doing this? 

If you are 14 & over would you like to run a play session?

Jumping Lessons.

I know a lot of you enjoy jumping, but not many of you participate in the jumping lessons.  What do feel could be done to improve the lessons?

 Could I please have some more ideas for the holidays for the 10 and over that you would like to do and interest you.  Thank you

Another idea that has been tried and tested at another stables.  We had a trophy that each group won for a week for the most improved for riding and stable management.  Would you like to do this at Silverstone?

We could have a termly / yearly trophy that could be presented the last week of the term. BBQ in the summer.   Ideas are below

  1. Most improved Ride
  2. Most effort put into PC
  3. Member who has done the most for PC
  4. Parent who has done the most for PC
  5. Any other suggestions

 

One of the biggest problems is keeping everyone up to date and informed of PC activities.  Many of you donít know when activities are on.  So far we do the following methods.  I f there are any that you could help with please tick below.
