It is that time of the year to get started with unmounted lessons. We are trying something new this year to hopefully increase participation and convenience. We will have unmounted once a month for two hours starting at noon. See schedule attached.
Every pony clubber that is a C1 HM or above needs to look at the lessons and choose 3 that they would like to teach. I will do my best to give you two of those topics but it will be first come first serve so put your request in early. I will pick what you teach if your request is not received by October 27 or your topics have already been chosen. Please send
Your request to firstname.lastname@example.org
