One of the objectives of The Pony Club is to give instruction and coaching in riding and horsemastership and to educate Members to look after and to take proper care of horses and ponies. Becoming a Pony Club coach will enable you to deliver training and support Members to help them develop their riding and horse and pony care skills. The requirements below apply to all coaches involved with the Pony Club.

How do I become a coach?

To start coaching for a Pony Club Branch or Centre you’ll need to be listed on The Pony Club coaching database. The easiest way to do this is for your Branch/Centre to add you on directly. If you aren’t already coaching for a Branch or Centre, use our Find a Club tool to find your nearest one.

You’ll also need to have the relevant certifications for the level at which you want to coach – full details are below. You’ll need to show copies of your certifications to your Branch/Centre for them to add to the database.
