We are so sorry to announce that all Pony Club activities have had to be cancelled with immediate effect. Below is the statement we received last night from Pony Club Headquarters.
The Pony Club statement on Covid-19 – updated 16th March
“The Pony Club Board of Trustees has been in discussion today and has made the very difficult decision to cancel all centrally organised events.
This includes the Winter Triathlon at Stoke Mandeville on Sunday 22nd March and The Winter Series Final at Arena UK 4th / 5th April.
Following The Prime Minister’s announcement this evening, requesting that we minimise social contact and non-essential travel, we advise that ALL Pony Club activities cease with immediate effect.
We would like to thank our members, parents and volunteers for their support of The Pony Club in this decision to play our part in preventing the spread of Covid-19.
Please continue to stay safe and well during this difficult time.
We will keep you updated as soon as we have any further information”
None of us know at this stage how long this will last but in the meantime please do all keep safe and well and make sure you continue to look after your horses and ponies properly and where it is safe to exercise them without social interaction please do continue to do so!
We will keep you posted as best we can in the weeks and months ahead! We are so very, very sorry but this is of course out of all our control and we must be responsible in our approach to help and support our country’s efforts to control this disease! Please do not hesitate to email or call Rebecca if you would like any more information or reassurance.
