Return To Ride Plan (v6.5)
Pony Club Victoria, its members, clubs and the wider community have all been affected by COVID-19. The health, wellbeing and safety of all involved in our sport is vital, as such Pony Club Victoria will continue to work closely with the relevant health authorities, both at a national and state level, to ensure we successfully navigate our way to safely resuming activity and riding for Pony Club in Victoria.
Since the first case of COVID in Australia, life has been challenging in many ways, not only in our sport but in our everyday lives. The Pony Club and wider Victorian community have come together to do what’s best for Victoria as a whole. Although at times the sacrifices we have made, have been hard, we
greatly appreciate the patience of our pony clubbers as together we navigate the changing COVID landscape and work to achieve the safest outcomes for our members and the community.
Safety remains the top priority across all levels of Pony Club and we look forward to seeing our members back at rallies, competitions and activities, by implementing COVID safe measures as detailed in this latest version (include reference).
