Welcome To The Worcestershire Hunt Branch of the Pony Club
Welcome To Worcestershire Hunt Branch Pony Club
We are a very friendly branch set in the beautiful Worcestershire countryside. Part of Area 9, our aim is for members to have fun, make new friends and to learn and improve on all areas of horsemanship.
We have a very active ‘Mini’ programme with members from 3 years old upwards. Our senior members then go right up to 23 yrs old. For any new members we operate a buddy scheme to ensure they feel welcome from day 1! So whatever your age or riding ability, you can be assured you’ll have lots of fun.
With 100 members we have lots of opportunities and rallies for all levels. Our club has an active mounted games group, developing tetrathlon team and an established eventing, show jumping and dressage squad. We are planning a full programme for 2015, which will include polo, carriage driving, vet visits, as well as training in all the usual disciplines. One of the most enjoyable fixtures in our calendar has to be our annual camp (either 3 day non residential or 5 day residential), where there is chance to develop all riding skills, along with lots of fun cementing those friendships. We also host lots of social events throughout the year.
Our home page is updated regularly with the latest news and full details can be accessed from the relevant tabs.

ANYONE INTERESTED IN MANAGING THE ENDURANCE RIDERS?
WOULD YOU LIKE TO TRAIN FOR COMPETITIONS OR FOR PLEASURE?
There are five types of Pony Club endurance ride – each ride different in distance. The shortest distances (under 10km or 10 – 19km) are an introduction to the discipline and are open to anyone over five years old. The novice distance (20 – 28km), intermediate (30 – 39km) and open (40 – 45 km) are area qualifiers and are open to over eight year olds.
This is a very interesting discipline that we can learn a lot from to help us in other areas including different aspects of how we look after our ponies.
There are many badges to work for along the way in learning all about endurance riding.
Area 7 qualifier is in Tugby on 24 May 2015.
Area 9 qualifier is in Cirencester on 5 July 2015.
Please call Laura for more details.
