Welcome to Atherstone Hunt Branch Pony Club Official Website, our Branch operates in an area of the Central Midlands very broadly bounded by the A511 in the north, the M1 in the east, the M6 in the south and the M42 in the west. We currently have 126 members in our Branch and welcoming old and new faces with open arms.  Membership is open to everyone from as young as 2 year olds to our Seniors up to the age of 25.

The Pony Club is the starting point for anyone who wants to develop their equine skills and experience.  Come and join the largest association of young riders in the world!

The Pony Club provides children and young people with the opportunity to develop a lifelong love of horses through fun, friendship, horsemanship and sport.

Meet our District Commissioner – Emma Neal

I’m Emma and have been District Commissioner of Atherstone since 2017. As DC I am lucky enough to head up the branch and take on all the responsibilities that go with that.

I also help lead the team of Atherstone volunteers, coaches and trainers, who work tirelessly to ensure our members have the best pony club experience we can offer.

I help organise camps, and competitions as well as fundraising, training and events. I travel all over the place watching competitions and training and try to see as many of our 130 plus members as I can every year, which I absolutely love doing.

Like a lot of people I have a full time job which is in Birmingham and have another full time job as DC! I spend lots of time answering emails and working behind the scenes, but I promise I’m always there for anyone that needs me. X
