Safeguarding / Social Networking

The Pony Club is aware that much interaction now occurs online for both adults and young people, especially through the use of Social Media sites such as Facebook, Twitter and Bebo. With this in mind The Pony Club has produced two policies relating to Best Practice when using Social Media outlets, for both Officials and Volunteers, and also young people. These policies can be downloaded in the tabs below.
