									Pickering Hunt Pony Club and MGAA Games Clinic
with Malcolm Trevor-Jones England MGA Coach October 21/22, 2006
Closing Date: October 13, 2006

Picking Hunt Pony Club (PHPC) and Mounted Games Across America, Inc. (MGAA) are proud to host a series of games clinic sessions with England’s MGA coach, Malcolm Trevor-Jones. Malcolm began coaching his daughter’s pony club team in 1988. He switched over to MGA when daughter Eleanor aged out of pony club. Malcolm coaches the Shropshire teams during the games season and has successfully coached the combined England MGA team to three straight IMGA World Championships. Don’t miss out on picking up some valuable games instruction at Malcolm’s coaching sessions. During the weekend of October 21/22, PHPC/MGAA are offering a Games Clinic opportunity that includes sessions for problem and green ponies, mounted sessions, and a Mounted Team Scramble Scrimmage. The clinic sessions are offered at Horizon Hill Farm in Glenmoore, Pennsylvania. Each of the mounted sessions will be approximately 2 hours in length. Groups will be formed as the entries dictate. The Organizer reserves the right to combine groups with the intent to keep groups as small as possible and still cover expenses. All PHPC and MGAA members are welcome to audit any of the mounted sessions free of charge. Any novice, intermediate, or master rider is welcomed to participate in these clinics. However, we are not taking beginning games riders for these clinics as riders. They are of course welcome to observe. PHPC and MGAA also recommend that an entire team sign up for the same mounted session. Much more can be accomplished if the entire team is there to hear the instructions and work on the new skills together. Please indicate on the entry form, all the team members who will be participating.
