Pony Club is a three hour session for children offering a mix of stable management and pony care. This will typically consist of activities including grooming, tack cleaning, mucking out, learning about the care of a pony, playing horse related games. Official Pony Club curriculum is followed, including mini achievement badges for younger members. Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum level progressive tests and achievement awards for older riders. Participants must become Pony Club members if they wish to continue once their trial period is up. Over the year Pony Club members are invited to join us on many events and outings, from Pony Club rallies to trips to major equestrian events such as Windsor horse show and Olympia. In August of each year we hold a prize giving for all members, awarding trophies and rosettes to outstanding members.
