Stabling - Important Note:

Qualifying for The Pony Club Championships for does not automatically guarantee an onsite stable. Musketeer Event Management and The Pony Club will do our upmost to try and accommodate everyone, however onsite stabling is limited due to infrastructure and some days are more competitor heavy than others. Once full, Musketeer can offer details of local stabling, but it is the competitors responsibility to organise this directly with the host.
Friday 18th & Saturday, 19th August: Stabling is currently full, please do not try and book online.
Musketeer will look to accommodate as many people as possible and have a wait list in operation – please email Musketeer (info@musketeer.co.uk) with your requirements, including the number of stables needed on the Friday/Saturday, rider name, horse name, Pony Club and area, sport, plus contact telephone number. Due to high call volumes causing a back log, we politely request that you do not phone Musketeer, this will allow them to deal with the volume of requests in the most efficient way and this will benefit everyone. 
If you wish to book off site stabling, we recommend South View Equestrian Centre (approx. 12 miles from Cholmondeley) which has a good range of equestrian facilities, a large number of stables and extensive hard parking area for both cars and lorries.  Tel: 01270 528684 / http://www.southviewarena.com/

Sunday, 21st - Tuesday 23rd August: Stabling is currently still available via the online system above.
