Pony Club at Wildwoods
We have joined the Pony Club Centre Membership scheme which means that young riders up to the age of 21 can now be part of an International organisation with over 110,000 members in 22 countries.
Developing and growing
Kids can work towards internationally recognised Pony Club Tests and Achievement Badges. The Tests run from ‘E’ Test (may be led) to the ‘A’ Test which is equivalent to BHS Stage 4. Riders are grouped into small groups of similar standard. Saturday afternoon is Club Time, where children can learn about all aspects of pony care, work for Achievement Badges and have a go under supervision at tasks like plaiting, lungeing and getting a pony ready to travel in a horsebox. Riding (optional) is split into groups from E Test – C Test
Rallies in the holidays and half term will consist of an hours’ riding and an hour of stable management instruction, working towards the various Achievement Badges. Day Course “Own a Pony” days and treks around the beautiful countryside are organised at half term and in the holidays. You don’t have to be a member to ride, but a monthly newsletter keeps you up to date with all the latest if you are!

Congratulations to all of our P0ny Club Members who passed their ‘D’ Test on Saturday 12th May!! Well done!!!
So much to do
In a world where children are given iPads at school and seem to have less incentives to go outside, it seems great that riding still brings out the little adventurer.
