I am writing to invite you to renew your daughter’s / son’s membership of The Pony Club. There will be a small increase in subscriptions for the coming year. The subscription for 2015 will be £64.00 per individual Member, up by £3.00. Families, where there are three or more children of the family living at the same permanent address, and being Members of the same Branch, will pay a family subscription of £160.00 (a rise of £7.00), irrespective of the number of children in the family. 

As with previous years, please bring your completed Membership Renewal Form to the presentation evening on the 30th and Natalie I will provide you with your new Membership Card ready for the year ahead.

Musical Dressage Training Dates are availabe on our members page Click here
Pony Club HQ has changed the membership year to 28th February, therefore our Annual Presentation and Membership evening on 28th November has been postponed. We hope this will help with your cash flow over the festive period and will be in touch with a new date as soon as this is agreed.

Avon Vale Christmas show at West Wilts. Sunday/Monday 28/29th December 2014 This runs over 2 daysYou can enter on both days if you wish.

If you would like your child(ren) to take part please email me and let me know which date and classes you would like to take part in (by class number please) and send your cheque to me as soon as possible ideally, but by the end of November at the latest!  This may seem early but with Christmas post and general Christmas chaos I would like to get entries in early.    As usual I will try to get everyone into teams where possible and usually manage to get everyone in at least one team, but it may be necessary for some people to take part as individuals.  

See the following Rule re decoration/costume: Limited, securely fastened Xmas Decorations will be allowed on horses/riders. To be checked by the Stewards. However, no “full fancy dress” costumes please! email This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .

Syston Team Showjumping - West Wilts Equestrian Centre -Sunday 30th November‏

This is a team event only. There are classes from 1'9 up to 3'0. You will see we can only enter whole teams of 3 or 4, at a cost of £44 per team. For this reason I would ask if you are interested to please email me (with details of which class(es)), and I will advise when teams are full. I think the fairest thing to do is take entries on a first come first served basis, as we are only allowed to enter 2 teams per class so a maximum of 8 children.
If we end up with teams of 4 the cost will be £11 per entry, if only 3 per team the cost per entry will increase, so please don't send cheques to me yet as we will need to co-ordinate payments. The closing date is 16th November, and I need to organise for Banwell to make payment once we have had cheques in. I understand this is a popular event so would appreciate it if you can register your interest to me by Sunday 2nd November at the latest, to allow time for me to get cheques and entries to them. If teams are full before this time I will send out an email advising this.
There will be another team show jumping event at West Wilts on 28/29th December so this is not the only one!please email Sarah Kennedy. Please also check the website for any updates.
