Our Pony Club Centre

Pony Club Centre Membership is designed for children who do not own their own pony but would like to become involved in Pony Club Activities and gives children the opportunity to learn more about riding and horse/pony care through a range of fun activities and events held at Moorview Equestrian for pony club centre members.

Whether you have your own pony or not, The Pony Club is the best starting point for all children who want to learn to ride and learn all about ponies.

Bay pony and rider

Membership is open to boys and girls under the age of 21 and offers some great benefits. In addition learning how to ride, Members can compete against each other and take part in a wide range of activities. Nearly all Britain’s most successful riders were once a Member of The Pony Club.
Lessons and competitions for Centre Members are organised by the riding school they attend. You ride the riding school ponies and so do not need access to one of your own. Activities might include rallies, stable management sessions, own a pony days, camps, show jumping, dressage, mounted games or social events like treasure hunts, barbeques or trips to watch equestrian events.

Pony and rider

Becoming a pony club centre member is ideal for those looking to own their own pony and also those who just want to enjoy the friendship, activities, learning more about ponies, riding and looking after them.

Pony Club Centre members are encouraged to take the pony club Achievement Badges, Efficiency Tests and Progressive Awards.

Membership Forms are available from Moorview Equestrian Centre and a range of pony club clothing and accessories are available from our Saddlery Shop.
