Due to having over 200 riders at the training day, the BPC cross country course will be closed to ALL riders from midnight tonight (21.04.14) until further notice. Please spread the word and stay OFF all aspects of the course. Thankyou.
Please also note:In regards to the use of the BPC cross country course, members of BEC clubs may use the course ONLY if they fill in a wavier form (on the PC office door) and pay a fee of $10 per person per use towards the maintenance and up keep of the course. Members must use appropriate safety equipment and use the course at their own risk. BPC members can use the course at any time with no fee, also at their own risk with appropriate safety equipment. Outside BEC members must make arrangements through BPC committee (secretary) and pay accompanying fees. All this is dependent on the course being 'open' as it closes for various reasons during the year. "i didn't know" is not a valid excuse. there is a website,Facebook page and and each club will be notified of any course closures. It is the riders responsibility to check on the course being open. It is the responsibility of each rider to pay cross country fees at time of use.There are no loop holes or ways around it. Just be honest and do the right thing. Thankyou. BPC members do NOT pay these fees.
Please remember when bringing horses to Pony Club, that baling twine is not gear. Please check
your gear regularly to ensure that you do not equire baling twine to repair your gear as it will
not be allowed either at musters or at competitions. If you are using baling twine as a piece of gear, please consider purchasing or borrowing the correct piece of equipment to a void the disappointment of not being able to ride at Pony Club.
Always ask around at Pony Club if something happens or you need to try a piece of gear - someone is always happy to lend you something that they are not using. We aim to make Pony Club as friendly and as safe as possible :)
