PLEASE READ … MEMO FOR PARENTS, CARERS and MEMBERS

We all have a responsibility to promote high standards of behaviour in the sport. This Branch is supporting the Area’s Respect programme to ensure equestrianism can be enjoyed in a safe, positive environment. Please remember Pony Club organised events are a time for members to develop their technical, physical, tactical and social skills. Winning isn’t everything.

TEAM TRAINERS decide who is in which team; please do NOT question their ability or choice. Their decision is final.

  • Remember that children and young people ride & compete for FUN.
  • Applaud effort & good play as well as success
  • Always Respect the officials’ decisions
  • Remain outside the arena and within the designated spectators Area (where provided) unless invited to do otherwise.
  • Let the instructor do their job and not confuse the riders by telling them what to do.
  • Encourage the riders to respect other riders, judges, stewards and officials.
  • Avoid criticizing a rider for making a mistake- mistakes are part of learning
  • Never engage in, or tolerate, offensive, insulting or abusive language or behaviour.

Our Branch volunteers & trainers put  a great deal of their unpaid time into organising training sessions & organising the teams for competitions, so please respect them & understand that not everyone can be in the ‘A’ Team.

Thank you … DC Bethan Jones

CLASSIFIED ADVERTS ON F and D WEBSITE

There seem to be a few Classified adds on the F&D website that have been on for some time. I know that some of the horses & ponies have now found new homes. Could I ask any member who has placed an advert to check and if your advert is still on and it is no longer needed to let the webmaster know so that it can be removed. It does not look good when these classified adds are on for months & months!!! Please try and remember to ask for them to be removed as soon as they are no longer needed. webmaster@flintanddenbigh.org

Thanks … Iona
