Finding the Future of the Irish Pony Club - Annual Conference & Feedback Questionnaire

The Irish Pony Club Annual Conference will take place on Saturday 21st October 2017 at the Abbeyleix Manor Hotel.  

Described in the Admin Rules as ‘a meeting of Area Representatives, District Commissioners and representatives of the Branch Committees’, all Pony Club officials, instructors, parents and supporters are very welcome to attend.  

It is particularly relevant this year as we present the new constitution for the IPC CLG and explain its implications, hence ‘Finding the Future of the Pony Club’ being the theme of the meeting.  We hope you will be present and help us in our efforts to energise the organisation.

The Annual Carew Awards will be presented by Lady Carew to anyone who you think might deserve this award for their exceptionally devoted service to the Pony Club.  This award will be made at the conference on Saturday 21st October.  

The Lillingston Cup, Carroll Trophy and Tommy Brennan Memorial Cup points are being worked out at the moment.  When calculated the results will be posted on the IPC website.  The results will be open to query for one week and then declared final.  Presentation of the Cups and Trophies will be made at the conference.

Registration is now open on the Irish Pony Club Its Plain Sailing page.  Please complete the simple registration process and choose one of these Conference Packages.

Irish Pony Club Questionnaire

In keeping with the theme of this year’s conference ‘Finding the Future of the Irish Pony Club’ the executive committee has been discussing how best to establish the wishes of the members in a changing equine environment.

The attached questionnaire seemed to be the most appropriate way to gather this information and so it would be greatly appreciated if each household would respond once only on behalf of the family.  We would like to have as many responses as possible before the conference but it will remain open until the 1st November 2017.

Please select the following link to complete the questionnaire:
