Thank you for all your support and good wishes which have helped us through the past months while we pulled together all the good aspects of Ponies (UK) and prepare it for the future.
The Office - You will now have the pleasures of speaking or dealing with Debbie Miller, the new P(UK) administrator. Debbie has a wealth of experience in the organisation of shows at Stretcholt Equestrian Centre and is a BSPS regional Chairman. She has miniature horses, organises British Dressage shows and is immersed in our sport. The telephone number and email address remain the same.
AGM, JUDGES CONFERENCE & PUK BALL - We are holding the P(UK) AGM on 3rd March at The Holiday Inn at Birmingham Airport. The Law requires this meeting, but we want all members to feel welcome to join us, as it is your association, we need to know you approve (or otherwise) of the plans we are making. After the AGM, a hot lunch will be available before we hold our interactive judges conference. Entry to to the judges conference is open to all, Judges, members and friends. Into the evening and the first Ponies (UK) spectacular ball and with Carol Cooper in charge it is sure to be an evening full of surprises alongside a live band and disco. Tickets are selling fast at £45 each for a scrumptious meal and all the entertainment of the evening. Children are most definitely welcome. We are holding a ‘Auction of Promises’, and our auctioneer for the evening is Gary Docking, so it will definitely be a lively affair.
Spring Classic. A brand new and exciting schedule which will hopefully have something to suit everyone with a timetable that is competitor friendly. The new Gold Medal series specifically designed for competitors who have been out and qualified during the Winter season. We also have secured some new RIHS Show Pony, Part Bred and a full range of BSPA RIHS classes to sit alongside the many RIHS qualifiers we already hold across our 2 day extravaganza. The show kicks off on Friday evening with a ‘Hoe-Down’, all are invited, hot food available, drinks and ....... a lorry dog competition, and the UNICORN of the year (UOY) competition - the schedule will tell you the ins and outs of UOY.
Save the date - Spring Classic show 23rd-25th March at The College Equestrian centre, Keysoe.
Merry Christmas and good health to you all, your families and of course your horses, ponies and dogs!
See you in 2018!!!
Carol Cooper and the board, Julie, Frances, Helen & Viv
