North Thompson Pony Club formed

A keen group of parents and youth again came out to show their interest in the formation of a Canadian Pony Club Branch

A keen group of parents and youth again came out to show their interest in the formation of a Canadian Pony Club Branch in our area.  The group voted on a name, which will now be known as the North Thompson Pony Club.  During this meeting an executive was voted in.

The club District Commissioner will be Jacquie Peters (, Secretary/Treasurer will be Crystal Clough (, and Registrar will be Maureen Smith (

We are planning a variety of fun and educational activities for the upcoming season, including theory, stable management/riding lessons (50 per cent for both activities), demonstrations, workshops, clinics, official Canadian Pony Club Levels testing, and fundraising – all in a positive family and community-based environment.

Any and all interested participants, ages seven to 21, and their parents are strongly encouraged to join.  Membership fees will be $115.

Ownership of a horse or pony is not required.  All members must however, have membership with Horse Council of B.C. and riding participants must have an ASTM approved riding helmet and proper footwear.

The next meeting will take place Thursday, Mar. 15, at 7 p.m., in the District of Barriere municipal building (Ridge).  Look for our Pony Club posters around town, and our upcoming regular news articles.

If you require any further information, please contact Jacquie Peters at 250-672-5812.
