What is my ride Master Card and why is it important?
Your ride Master Card forms the only acceptable record of your endurance riding achievements - it is therefore a very important document, which it is your responsibility to hand to the Ride Secretary at the start of each ride.
The Secretary will complete and validate your card each time you compete.
No awards will be back dated due to loss of a card or failure to present it on the day.
There are three reasons this rule is so strictly adhered to;
1. For welfare reasons equines are not usually allowed to compete at more than 10 endurance rides in a year. The record card allows secretaries to monitor this.
2. As riders can compete at events run outside The Pony Club, it is not possible for The Pony Club or ride secretaries to verify results for qualification and certificates otherwise.
3. Your Master Card is your only proof of performance and failure to produce it on the day will result in your entry being withdrawn, which would be disappointing to all involved.
It is imperative that you collect a Master Card from your Branch/Centre Secretary in advance of your first ride, and that you take it to every Endurance Ride that you participate in. You will not be allowed to ride if it is not presented to the Ride Secretary in advance of the ride.
Master Cards can be requested from the Pony Club via email on email@example.com or calling 02476698306
