    Can someone tell me when they get more information how the Insurance thing is going? Did the Rally's make a difference?

    Pony Club got insurance for another year, but the PC fees will rise next year, and they will be faced with the same problem this time next year if nothing is done by the government. That's the latest I heard.

    I heard from the Peel pony club today, that it still looks as though it will all come to a halt as of june 30.
    But then one of my agisters said tonight that it is all okay, but fees will rise.
    I suppose word needs to come from a official, before we know for sure.
    The thing to remember is that it's not just pony club, but all events and instructors that are covered aswell that will no longer be in business. Where would you keep your horse if the agistment centres have to shut down? What will the ones who stay open have to change now?
    What a major pain in the rear end!!!

    Thankyou for that. I adgist my horse on a mans property. Nothing special just some land he wanted to fill in. I'll keep an ear out for the official word. Thanks.

    I heard today that the fee's will go up to $30 per head for the next pc rally which will cover the rest of the year. Before that the cheapest they could find was $100 per head each rally.

    Where do you live and what sort of agistment are you after?

    Some riding schools are asking all their members to be covered by EFA. Most riding schools should be ok till the end of the year, though next year Im not sure what is happening, however i will post as soon as I know.
    I've been using a different alternative for riding lessons, so Insurance is still covered and will be no matter what. I use bartering so no money is exchanged. Some people who have lemon trees bring a bag of lemons or other fruit or eggs. Another person is having 40 riding lessons = some earthworks (new lounge yard) and a more popular one is an exchange of a bag of horse feed.

    Thanks for that. Yeh it is a shame :( I've been looking for months. I've been at this place for 4 years. There can only be 3 horses on this property at a time. And horses "always" come and go and I just recently realised how that is upsetting my horse and so I need to find some where quick :(

    P.S. Your site is great [​IMG]
