Thank you to our 2018 Volunteers

On behalf of the Pony Club Office Team we would like to say an enormous thank you for all your time, energy and expertise volunteering at The Berkeley Group Pony Club Championships 2018 at Cholmondeley Castle. It was a huge team effort and subsequently we have received some wonderful feedback from Members, trade stands and parents.

Here are some examples of the great comments:
‘I was blown away by the efficiency of everyone at the show, it looked almost effortless.’
‘Please pass on my heartfelt thanks to NFU and the Pony Club for providing such fantastic mentors and giving all our children such wonderful opportunities, experiences and memories.’
‘The event had such a great feel and everyone was so friendly and welcoming, thank you.’

The Championships this year were a resounding success and that is down to all of you for supporting the team in the office and for giving up entire days to fence judge, tack check, steward, commentate, judge and much much more.

Thank you.

The Pony Club Office Team
