June 2024 Newsletter

Hi BHPC members,

I hope you are all gearing up for lots of fun and learning with your horses at our muster this Sunday.

I have attached the June 2024 newsletter to keep you informed about Pony Club activities. There is information about our May and June musters, Brookfield Show, and upcoming BHPC and Zone 1 events. I welcome your photos and stories of your equestrian activities throughout the year to include in the newsletter.

June Muster: Sunday 16 June – 9 am Start – 3 pm Finish (approximately) – Kindly sponsored by Glen Borg Constructions

Our Winter musters start at 9 am and riders wear the club’s formal uniform. – We will start with a line-up on the Showgrounds at 9 am before breaking into groups for the different activities. We will also hold our usual adult rider lesson at 8 am in the long yard. Our June muster is a normal teaching muster, with dressage lessons to prepare our riders for the dressage element of the BHPC Combined Training event in August. Other activities will include games, show jumping, and youth handler which we will practise as these are events at our August Formal Gymkhana, and also fun with the big ball.

All riders, please let Sandy know if you are coming or not coming to the muster ASAP or at the latest by 10 pm Wednesday 12 June – email chiefinstructor@brookfieldponyclub.org.au or text 0400 952 002. This is important to allow rider groups and instructors to be organised.  A timetable and Jotform for pre-ordering of food for lunch will also be provided later this week.
