Summer Camp 2017

2 - 7 July

The highlight of our Club's year!

Information Sessions and Work Parties to prepare the Venue for Camp will be held on Wednesdays 14th and 21 and 28 June at Carrigdarrery from 6.00 - 9.30pm.


Then it will be 'all hands on deck' for the final push to get ready on Sat 1 July from 10.00am!

Families with children attending Camp are expected to attend  at least two of the four work parties - otherwise the infrastructure won't be in place and Camp just won't happen!
Please register now for Camp on www.itsplainsailing.com

14 of our members had a great two days at Coolcorron Stud in March, where they benefited enormously from Robert Splaine's instruction.




Congratulations to our thirteen members who all passed their D Tests in March!


And a huge thank you to Instructor Ellen Beardsley who had them all so well prepared.

At least one parent of each Muskerry Pony Club Member must be Garda vetted.  This is not a complicated process.  Just download the form here, complete and forward to Irish Pony Club at the address supplied.  Many thanks!


Muskerry Hunt Pony Club

Muskerry Hunt Pony Club is a branch of the Irish Pony Club based in North West Cork.  We aim to provide young people with instruction and enjoyment in all horseriding activities.  We currently have approx 70 members aged 8 to 18 years.  We operate mainly in the Muskerry valley in venues near Lissarda, Cloughduv, Farnanes and Aherla and Aghabullogue, but also organise training or other events further afield. We are run by a Committee of Parents headed by our two District Commissioners Mary O'Riordan and Celine O'Connor.  Muskerry Hunt P.C. and eight other Cork Pony Clubs make up Area 5 of the Irish Pony Club.  Membership is on an annual basis for a calendar year.



Three cardinal rules

1: Safety

Safety is our primary concern. Riding is a risk sport so children attending rallies must be accompanied by a parent for the duration of the training. Our insurance only covers the member attending the training so no other person is permitted to ride.  Please remember that you should not mount your pony at a rally until asked to do so by the instructor.  Space is usually limited, so any lunging of ponies should happen at home and is not permitted at the rally venue. Your tack / riding gear must conform to Pony Club standards - see IPC website for recently updated safety standards.  Skull hats must be worn on cross country.

2: Consideration

Rallies are usually held at venues provided by the generosity of friends of the Club.  Please take care to respect their properties and make sure that you adopt a “leave no traces” approach to litter/animal fouling.  Please make sure to be punctual also, leaving plenty of time to tack up ahead of your start time.

3: Five rally rule

Summer camp is the highlight of the Club year.  To be eligible for Camp, members must have attended a minimum of five mounted rallies since the previous year's Summer Camp.
