 Welcome to the South Dorset Hunt Branch of the Pony Club



Calling all junior members and their ponies (and dogs) to our fabulous Open Junior Show on Saturday May 26th… Show Jumping, Ridden Showing, Gymkhana Games, Fancy Dress Parade plus Horse and Hound jumping. Click here for more info.

The time has come to book your place at camp!   For many, it’s the highlight of the year and we would like to invite you to join us at Camp this summer.  We will have the usual mix of high quality tuition, interesting talks and above all, FUN! It’s a fantastic way to improve your riding, make friends and have a wonderful time. We will also be working towards taking Pony Club Tests. Click here for more info and booking forms.

We would like some older members to help at Junior/Mini camp please check the dates and let us know if you are available.

As a Club we like to encourage those that want to be in teams and compete for their Club, but it’s not all about the competitions – many of our members join the Club to enjoy their ponies in a less competitive way and friendships are formed through rallies and camps. Competitive or not, we all love our ponies and meeting and making friends with children with a shared interest.

Our Pony Club was founded in 1931 and still has strong ties with the South Dorset Hunt today. We are a branch with approximately 100 members (at last count) and offer training for all levels from the smallest Mini riders on their first ponies to the most competitive of Senior riders.

The South Dorset is particularly lucky as we have two fabulous Equestrian Centres within our territory: The RAC Saddle Club at Bovington and Moreton Equestrian Centre. Both venues regularly hold competitions and we are fortunate to hold many of our rallies and camps at these centres and enjoy the excellent facilities that they offer.
