The passing of two stalwarts of our association
The Irish Pony Club Community are deeply saddened by the passing in recent times of two stalwarts of our association.
Mrs. Ann Lambert
Ann was the District Commissioner of the Killinick Branch Pony Club in the late seventies, retiring in 1987. Ann was extremely knowledgeable, encouraging to all, fair, graceful under pressure and always had a kind word for those she met. Under Ann’s guidance the Killinick Branch really prospered. Ann continued as a valued member of the National Horse Trials Committee, and later became Area 4 Representative at Executive Level.
We express our deepest sympathy to Ann’s family at this sad time.
Mrs Pam More O'Ferral
Pam was a key member of the Bray Pony Club family and her time, energy and commitment was unwavering over the years. Pam was genuinely a dedicated and generous coach, brilliant horse woman and equitation instructor. Her kindness, patience, and gentle but determined manner made her loved by children and parents alike. Pony Club Camp was a phenomenal event, made all the better when Pam was teaching.
Pam played - a key part of the Iris Kellett team, working with Iris Kellett teaching the young students and stars of the future. She was full of spirit and fun, a person with an incredible love and knowledge of all things equestrian. Pam brought a great deal of happiness and fulfilment to so many people of all ages in educating them in horsemanship and a love of all things equine. In that world of equitation, she was greatly admired and respected.
Pam died on Friday February 12th, 2021, (peacefully) in the care of St. Vincent’s University Hospital, Elm Park after a long illness.
We at the Irish Pony Club wish to offer our condolences and sympathies to Ann & Pam’s Families and Friends. We would also like to offer our sympathies and respects to those among us who have sadly passed in the preceding months.
