Thank you from your DC

Good Evening Campers!
As we approach the end of this year’s camp I would like to thank everybody involved in making the week such a success. To all the parents, instructors, committee, leaders, grooms and those of you who helped out around the field and with the courses (too many to name but you know who you are) – this week would not be possible without your input. To the kids, from the younger members making new friends as they get started on the pony club ladder, to the experienced members re-connecting with old friends – this is your week. I hope you have all enjoyed yourselves and look forward to seeing as many of you as possible out competing for the branch in the red and white this year and for many years to come.

Low Flying Aircraft

Horse Sport Ireland has asked us to let members know about the  ‘Tellus survey’  which will be collecting the latest geochemical and geophysical data  on rocks, soil and water across Ireland this summer.

The survey, due to commence on the 11th June 2015,  involves an aircraft flying at a low height over counties Meath, rural Dublin, Kildare, Offaly and parts of Laois and Wicklow. 

Pony Camp 2015

Hi All

Please see attached the rides for camp 2015. We have put a huge amount of consideration into each ride. After each rally the instructors have given us their feed back and we are satisfied that as far as is humanly possible the riders are matched in terms of ability, age, experience and type of pony. Every ride will have a strongest and weakest rider. If your child is lucky enough to be a strong rider please encourage them to enjoy their group as camp is most importantly about having fun. The children all learn from each other. Changes are very unproductive and unsettling for riders and instructors. Please also respect and trust in the knowledge and expertise of the instructors and chief instructor Jenny who has worked incredibly hard to put the rides together.

Please also read the attached letter including important safety information for camp.

Our normal starting time for camp is mounted and ready to go at 9:30 however the weather forecast for tomorrow is not great so we will start at 10:00 am and it would be wise to bring wellies and spare clothes as well as your suncream!.

See you all in the morning.
