February 2019 – Equine Flu

In the current situation most venues are requesting that any horses taking part in lessons or competitions have been vaccinated within the last 12 months. A few, including MPEC and Stockland Lovell, are insisting on 6 months. It would be of assistance if you would please take your flu vac records with you should owners wish to undertake spot checks to ensure compliance.  Thank you. Mike

Lesson Etiquette

We have an undeniable good range of instructors who teach for the club and please can we remind all members to be respectful to all of our instructors. Simply, all we are asking is –

1) Please ensure that you arrive for lessons on time and ensure you clean up all poo and hay from arenas and lorry parks.  We are welcomed at various venues and it is important that we leave them all clean

2) Do not expect your instructor to clean up droppings and hay left by your horse in arenas and yards
3) Please ensure you have paid for your lesson in advance
4) Do not contact instructors to cancel yourself from a lesson which the RC has organised, please cancel through the BMRC lesson booking system.
5) When you are attending your lesson please listen and learn from your instructor and ask questions if you are unsure about anything which you are being asked to do.

For full lesson rules please read the Constitution section 15 – 27
