Summer Camp 2019 

CAMP 2019 was one to remember! The sun shone at Rosanna solidly for five days; the kids, ponies and instructors had a ball. A massive thank you to the committee, to parents and instructors who worked tirelessly to ensure we had a wonderful week. Bring on Camp 2020!!

We have a Leave No Trace Policy for everyone attending pony club events. Everyone is responsible for 
taking away their rubbish and their horses dung. Recently our DC spent over an hour picking up coffee cups and collecting dung after an event which can not happen again. Please be responsible and Leave No Trace 🙂
