Seven of our members have been training
hard for their C test since January and all
seven of them passed with flying colours
on Wednesday 16th April. The examiner
commented that they were all very well
prepared, beautifully turned out and
extremely polite. Very well done to all
f you. The group was Margaux Cardew,
Sophie Golland, Katie Mulhern, Sofia
Welch, Katie Webster, Elisha Beehoo and
Saorise Mason (not pictured). A huge
thanks to Emily Cullum for the training,
Cathie Lammie for the testing, and Patrick
for presenting the certificates.

HAT TAGGING -
Parents and members are advised that there are some considerable changes coming into acceptable hats shortly which may well have an effect if they are considering buying a new hat this year.
The European Union is withdrawing hats marked (BS)EN1384 from its approved list.
The Pony Club will therefore not allow any hats marked (BS)EN1384
after the 31st December 2015.
All current hats with this standard will remain on purple hat tags for this year.
Hats with PAS015, Snell 2001 and AS/NZS 3838 must be retagged during the year
with the new white hat tag.
From 1st January 2016 only white tagged hats will be acceptable.
Members should check their hats this year to see if they must purchase a new approved one before the start of next year.
There may well be a number of (BS)EN1384 hats on sale at a great
bargain but they will only be permissible within Pony Club for the remainder of this year.
If anyone is uncertain of this new ruling please do visit The Pony Club website for further information or consult a member of The Burghley Pony Committee.
