Pony Club Unveils First Plans For 75th Anniversary

The Pony Club is delighted to announce that to mark its 75th anniversary in 2004, it has been appointed the nominated charity for the Olympia International Show Jumping Championships 2003 (18th-22nd December) and the Mitsubishi Motors Badminton Horse Trials 2004 (29th April-2nd May).

Sian Thomas, Chief Executive of The Pony Club, said: “We are very grateful to two such prestigious events for giving us the chance not only to raise funds for training but also a very significant opportunity to reach our existing and past Members - in addition to those who may be new to the horse world and therefore not familiar with the benefits of membership of The Pony Club

Hugh Thomas, Director of the Mitsubishi Motors Badminton Horse Trials, said: “You would have to go back to the 1960s to find a British winner of Badminton who has not been a Member of The Pony Club and this, coupled with our long association with the Beaufort Branch and the fact that it is The Pony Club’s 75th anniversary next year, gives us an excellent opportunity to help them commemorate this significant anniversary whilst looking forward to the future.”

Simon Brooks-Ward, Director of the Olympia International Show Jumping Championships, said: “We are delighted to be able to give The Pony Club the opportunity to increase awareness of this fantastic organisation through Olympia and to promote their plans for the 75th anniversary.”
