Hi BHPC riders,

I have attached the June 2023 newsletter to keep you informed about Pony Club activities. There is information about our May and June musters, Brookfield Show, official stable block opening, and upcoming BHPC and Zone 1 events, as well as details on how riders can achieve their proficiency certificates or medallions. I welcome your photos and stories of your equestrian activities throughout the year to include in the newsletter. I hope you are all excited about riding at our June muster on Sunday 18 June!!

June Muster: Sunday 18 June – Formal winter uniform

9 am Start – 3 pm Finish (approximately) – We will start with a line-up on the Showgrounds at 9 am before breaking into groups for the different activities. Our special guest instructor, Selina, will be giving working equitation lessons on the day, a fun and challenging activity for all riders.  Please check out the attached Working Equitation information from Pony Club Australia. Our usual adult rider lesson before the muster will start at 8 am in the long yard.
