Newcomers’ and Pony Club Week 2017

The aim of this week is to introduce as many new faces to the hunting field as possible and to encourage those that have never been hunting before to give it a try. No special clothes or kit are needed to take part!  Although please have a piece of paper in your pocket with name, address and telephone number of contact person if needed.  
All newcomers are welcome:  
Adults: £20  
Children: £10  

Please put your money in an envelope with your name and contact details written on it.   

We just ask that you book in with Rachael Morley on 07889 083194 or Louise Moore on 07803 778356 so that we have a rough idea of numbers and can give you some directions regarding parking, etc.  More information also available on the Newcomers/Visitors page.
