To all Riding Pony Members, we hope that you have finally had a chance to go out and showcase your lovely riding ponies, unfortunately, the weather on the East Coast continues to be relentless and wet wet wet…. so if you are lucky enough to compete enjoy your ponies. With so much mud it is important to keep and eye out for abscesses and feet problems associated with the wet ground.
An important announcement is that there will be another judges clinic held at the Holiday Inn at Mascot for all Judges who need to complete a session every 3 years, this Clinic is being run by the NSW RP committee and will have Zoom facilities for all interstate members and any others who want to become a Riding Pony Judge, please see the Judges application forms on the RP website and there will soon be a nomination form available to all who wish to attend in person, there is a limit of 48 persons in the Conference room so be quick to apply to our Secretary Alison Doyle.
A gentle reminder that in order to compete in any Riding Pony class at any AG or State show in Australia the horse needs to be registered in the RPSBS stud book and recorded in the current owner’s name who also needs to be a current financial member. The awards will be stripped if found to be incorrect.
Many new foals are being born at this time of the year and we remind you to make sure that you have a service certificate so that any RP foal can be fully documented in the Studbook.
