Branch Information


Our sign

Welcome to the Old Surrey and Burstow Hunt Branch of the Pony Club. This branch first began in 1930 and was one of the founding branches of the Pony Club.

We are an active branch with over 152 current members. We offer the following disciplines: Dressage, Eventing, Show Jumping, Polo, Mounted Games, Endurance, Tetrathlon, Horse and Pony Care and Racing. You are welcome to attend the rallies for each discipline even if you have never done them before. The organiser will be able to explain about the discipline and tell you what to do.


We produce a programme of activities for each holiday and this will be emailed out to you. You need to book in for the activity you would like to take part in, usually by emailing the organiser and sending an online payment, unless instructed otherwise. In each holiday you will have the opportunity to attend a Working Rally, that is an instructional group lesson. Our Chief Instructor Jane Cobb will make sure you are in a group to match your ability.


The dress at rallies is: riding hat, long sleeved white or pale blue shirt, Pony Club tie, navy OS&B sweatshirt, or the long sleeved branch polo shirt, available to buy from Diane Cheeseman (Treasurer) with tan or cream, or dark jodphurs, brown or black jodhpur boots or long boots. Please tie long hair back, and if needed wear a hair net to keep it tidy.
