Some Reminders...

 

Please be sure to collect all droppings from the car park, otherwise club gets fined! We have a poop scoop for you to use.


Please help to put jumps out and away on club nights, arrive early for clinics, as they say more hands make light work! If we don't have help this will eat into your lesson/clinic time that you are paying for!


When parking lorries and horseboxes in the car park in Pencoed beside the large school please park diagonally facing away from the large school and not lengthways. You can also park lorries in the area at the end of the school. No cars to be parked in both these areas on evenings and weekends as they must be reserved for horseboxes and lorries only. Do not park along the length of the school.

 

No trotting (or cantering) in the car park.


CHECK YOUR FLU VACCINES HERE


Many competitions, including AREA QUALIFIERS require your horse to be properly vaccinated for Flu, and the vaccinations must be within date. Use this checker to ensure that you will not be turned away on the day!
