2013 is going to be a busy year for the Dartmoor Pony Training Centre. We are planning on turning into a Community Interest Company and running a variety of events and courses. At present we are a Voluntary organisation and have been since we first set up in 2005. This means that all the work we do for the DPTC at the moment, including teaching on courses, is unpaid. This has been okay up until now but as we want to secure a long term future for our organisation we have decided to convert to a CIC which means we can be paid for some of the work we do.... and hopefully carry on doing it for many years to come! A CIC is like a cross between a business and a charity; it has an asset lock that means all the monies raised by the organisation will have to go back into supporting the work we do. For more information on this type of organisation please look at: http://www.bis.gov.uk/cicregulator
We are planning to be running courses in the following in 2013:
- Semi-feral foal handling
- Meditation with horses
- Pony play; fun half days out on Dartmoor learning about pony psychology and ponies on Dartmoor.
Details of all these courses to follow asap but in the meantime if you have any enquiries please contact me on: firstname.lastname@example.org or 07802 218169.
All the best to you all for a wonderful 2013!
