Supported by Aberyswyth University, The Pony Club Talent Pathway scheme will return in 2018 with selection days taking place across the country.

This scheme is for Members who want to develop their ability in Show Jumping, Dressage and Eventing and offers:

  • Area Training Days for riders to get tips and advice from top class coaches (candidates DO NOT have to attend a training day to progress to a selection day)
  • Regional Selection Days where participants will get training and feedback to help their future development in their chosen sport
  • National Camp where those riders chosen from the selection days work with sport-specific coaches, and benefit from both mounted and dismounted sessions

Six Members will then be selected to form the Pony Club Talent Pathway Squad 2018 benefitting from support of an experienced mentor, a training bursary plus further training opportunities.

Selection days are in April and each candidate will take part in 2 x 45 minute sessions:

  • Dressage – 2 x Dressage Sessions
  • Show Jumping – 2 x Jumping Sessions
  • Eventing – 1 x Dressage Session & 1 x Jumping Session

 Important message -

Can everyone please when either arriving at the Garroch or leaving please please make sure you close both gates after yourselves . If the gate is open when you arrive or leave it shouldn’t be !! The person before you should have shut it so please don’t assume it should stay open . Obviously if there is a trailer directly behind then the last one in or out should close it .

Both the internal and Road gate must be shut every time for obvious safety reasons in case we get a loose horse or small children wandering down on the road .

Could I also ask for everyone to be aware of the rides that are going on and to make sure that any small children, dogs or adults don’t cross the arenas when rides are still going on . Please walk round .
