November 09

We have a few changes for the winter.  As Thursdays are very quiet at the moment.  Work experience will be from 4.30pm – 5.30pm as we’ve shortened this means the work experience members may join in the extra stable management.  Group 5 is now 5.30 – 7pm.  At the moment there is no group 6.  From January the group 1 will move from 5.45 to 4.30pm.  Tuesday.  This is so we can finish earlier as now is the middle of winter.  I am hoping to start a group for the older experienced teenagers and adults at 6pm on a Tuesday if I can get enough riders.  Everything else will stay the same.

For you Diary

Please try and read it as much as possible.  All our special events go in and all the dates for test for badges and when project need to be handed in.  I also find out about local horse events which you may like to go to.  Most of them are free.  We also organise trips to the top shows and in the diary will be details – costs etc.  If you find out about any horse events please feel free to put details in the diary.  The diary, holiday book, booking in file and notice board are all found on the table outside the pony club room along with newsletters etc.
