The residential pony camp is running this year from Monday 10th July – Wednesday – 12th July, at Lee Valley Equestrian Centre, Kilcondy, Crookstown, Co. Cork. Should prove to be a brilliant week in with loads of activities planned.

So!!  To all you memebers who will be Glamping it this year just a few reminders –

Parental help & support needed to ensure camp is a success.

Proposed Rallies for over the Easter Holidays

Proposed Schedule of Rallies to be held over the Easter Holidays:

Monday 10th April – Orienteering in Currabinny Woods – no ponies as they are no good to read the maps!  Kick off at 11am and bring picnic for afterwards.

Wednesday 12th April – Start of the showjumping rallies (awaiting confirmation from trainer) Time and Venue TBC.

Friday 14th April – XC Training in Kileady with Vicki Curtin.  For those members training for the minimus we will run first and ride after – so running will begin at 11am and riding will begin at 12 noon.  This is open to all not just minimus, if enough non minimus are interested I will arrange a second rally to run alongside the minimus training with another instructor.

Monday 17th April – Area 5 Senior Training Day at Clyda House. (While this is restricted to the C+ and above if there are places available the C test holders will be considered.  Please text me if interested) Anne.

Tuesday 18th April – XC Training in Jim Willis same schedule as the Friday above.  Time TBC

All of the above are to be confirmed depending on numbers etc.  Please have a look and give me a text on 0868155279 to confirm which events you are interested in so I can finalise please. Anne
