Good news! Yesterday the British Equestrian Federation has stated that according to new government guidelines class lessons can now resume with a maximum of 5 riders.
We will be starting class lessons from Saturday June 6th for members only. Unfortunately due to the impact of the pandemic we are having to increase our monthly membership fee. There will now be only one type of membership , this membership will be riding only and cost £90 per month. At the moment we cannot say when we will be able to recommence Saturday Club.
If you would like to renew your child's membership and attend from Saturday 6th June please ensure your membership of £90 is transferred by Thurs 4th June at 6pm. This is so we can advice riders of their lesson time on Fri 5th June. We will where possible keep riders in their usual lesson slots except for Wednesday riders as at the moment will only be running lessons on a Saturday. If you rode previously on a Wednesday then you will be given a Saturday slot with rid...
Maybe you've been thinking of loaning a pony and would like a trial week, well now is your chance. Loaning a pony is a big commitment so you need to be sure that its something you really want to do. If you are desperate to loan a pony but can't afford our Platinum membership then why not share a pony with a friend to reduce costs. If you would like to share a Platinum membership then let us know and we will see if there is someone you could pair up with. All we ask is that between you , you give your pony the best love and care you can.
If you would like a private lesson on a particular pony during half term then why not get in touch, remember Gold members receive a 20% discount and Silver members a 10% discount.
Thinking of buying a pony or would like to keep a pony on livery at Club Equestrian we have a few stables available. We can offer DIY. Part , Full or working livery.
Our family Fun Day at Club Equestrian was a huge success, thanks to all who donated their time, Fabulous cakes and prizes. It was a great team effort with members, members parents, liveries past and present all giving their time generously or simply supporting the event. Special thanks to Kerry, Alison and Sue and to Mums; Mel, Caroline, Gail and Alison who all helped on the day either getting ponies ready or at the fete and to Mark and Janette for catering and their generous donation.
Also thank you to Ben Carus, Kirstie Clarke and Mellissa Rose who gave up their day and with the help of Dickon gave an informative demonstration, which hopefully inspired some of our talented young riders.
The musical ride was fabulous, well done to our loaners whose hard work practicing with Vicky on their loan nights paid off. The 'Tribute to our Ponies " song was also fantastic and you will be able watch and listen to it on our website shortly.
Lucy, Jasmine and Kirsty, some of our older members had a wonderful idea ...a Family Fun Day/ Fete at Club Equestrian, with all proceeds going to charity.
They have been busy practicing musical displays and planning the day which will take place on Sunday 27th August 12noon- 3pm.
All proceeds from the day are going to Derian House, a childrens hospice which Rene visited last week. It would be wonderful if all our members could help in some way to raise money, wether it be having at stall, baking cakes, helping with the tombola, or our pony/unicorn rides... we welcome any suggestions or help.
We would especially love as many of our members as possible to join us in singing the "pony song' and tribute to our ponies. We are having a practice this Saturday 10am - 12 so wether it is your week to ride or not or you normally ride during the week, please come along and practice, we would love our youngest, oldest, new and long standing members to join...
It was another great day for the show and we were pleased to welcome our judge Carmen and her assistant Crumb! Who joined in the celebrations by barking very loudly.
The ponies all looked amazing, yet again! As always it was wonderful to see everyone making such an effort. It is so difficult for the judge when everyone has obviously tried so hard and very little separated the winners from the rest.
It was so rewarding to see all our members had improved from the last show, especially in the jumping. All of four older riders put in some lovely rounds and only half a mark separated Kirsty and Lucy, if Shyla hadn't had a stop at the first fence she would also have scored very highly, as she demonstrated a lovely position and good balance. Kaitlyn also really impressed the judge with a super round on our wonderful new pony. On the poles on the floor a copy book round from Sophie secured a win.
Club Equestrian, loads of fun, riding, trips and activities start now.
