PONY CLUB

By being a Pony Club approved centre means that our young members work their way through various Pony Club horse care and riding badges giving them a real sense of achievement!  To be a Pony Club Approved centre means that we have to work to certain Health and Safety standards which also gives parents and carers piece of mind!  Our Pony Club Members enjoy approximately 45mins of ridden coaching and 45mins of stable management lessons so they will spend 1.5 hours in total with us.
