Some Polite Reminders...

 

Please 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.

 

Please be sure to collect all droppings from the car park, otherwise club gets fined! We have a poop scoop for you to use. No trotting in the car park.

 

If you are attending any of the Monday sessions please make sure that you park in the top car park in Pencoed even if riding in the lower school, and collect your poo at all venues!

 

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!

 

New Standard for Body Protectors which must be Level 3 Purple label 2000. Body protectors are strongly recommended at all times and compulsory for all at Cross Country and for Juniors at jumping competitions.
