As of the 14 th of August 2013 the two sand arenas at I. R. Robertson Reserve will be locked to exclude public use. The arenas will only be available for use by current financial members of both Gisborne Pony Club and Gisborne Adult Riders . For those of you reading this that are in fact members of one of the clubs please be aware that the arenas
may still be out of bounds after periods of heavy rain. Please do not force entry as riding on a waterlogged surface destroys the base which is costly to repair. This will destroy a high cost asset that many have worked hard to obtain. If your own arenas or facilities are too wet to ride on at home you can bet the clubs will be too.
