Camps 2006

Welcome

Milton Keynes Event Centre

This year’s summer camp was once again a great success.The evening entertainment was superb. We started the week with Karen Potten’s excellent quiz. On Monday Jeannine March demonstrated western riding on her competition horse.  This was quite a sight to behold with spinning turns, lassoing, galloping and stopping dead – amazing! On Tuesday we had a very informative talk by Caroline Briggs on long distance endurance riding. Wednesday evening started with the team captains and vices give out prizes. This was followed by karaoke and a  water bomb fight!  One event marred the week, the theft of several member’s tack by persons unknown.  What was amazing to see was how the members and their parents rallied round to bus in extra tack and offer each other support. The members were all really brave and carried on as usual; by lunch time the next day everybody was back in the saddle with the minimum of disruption.  It was a great example of true Pony Club spirit.  A big thank you must go to Tamsin Luff who was our stable manager. This year she had to inspect 50 sets of tack and 50 stables every day!!  Anna Stone was of great assistance to Tamsin. A big thank you as well to all the parents who came up either during the day or stayed over night; without your help camp wouldn’t happen. The musical rides were excellent again this year with music and costumes from Peter Pan, Bay Watch and the Wedding March. Japes Michalski kindly brought up a proper

sound system and speakers so that

riders and spectators could hear the

music. Diane Hunt DC

Mini Camp

This year we had 16 of our younger members attend with instruction from Katherine Gardener, Janeen Shepherd & Kat Daniels. The event included instruction,  combined training competition and a handy pony course. The weather was very kind and everyone enjoyed themselves. A big thank you to Debbie Fogden and Kate Michalski for letting us use the field and facilities and organising the event.  Thanks also goes to the members who gave up their time to come up and help.
