to Zahra Bennett on gaining the Mini Gold award for achieving all 14 Mini Badges.


It is disappointing to hear that the standard of turnout at the Working Rallies and Training Sessions is once again slipping. Every member has received a copy of what they should wear, it is also on the website and has been sent out with the Weekly Update on numerous occasions.

I have once again Attached (What to wear at Rallies) it, please make sure you read it!

Black sweatshirts are for XC only. Red sweatshirts are for Rallies, Pony Club Ties must be worn and hairnets for any members with long hair.

All hats must be tagged.

Please arrive in plenty of time at a Rally or Training Session. You should be mounted and ready to start the session at the time given NOT arriving. In future, any member arriving more than 5 minutes late, after the start time, will not be allowed to join their group as this can be disruptive to the lesson.

This information is also readily available on the Home Page of the Website in the “Sticky” section Dress Code and Urgent … Dress Code Update
