For National Pony Club updates and information please go to
COVID-19 Guidance

We are really pleased to be able to offer training and rallies for you our members during these difficult times.  We are still adhering to the recommended COVID -19.  We will update the guidance once received from pony club and national bodies.


We ask that you support us as a branch to adhere to the guidelines we need to follow to enable these rallies to run :-

  • Rallies will have a  hand over period to allow members to leave the teaching area. The rally organiser will then indicate to the next session that the area is clear to enter. Members must be tacked up and waiting beside their vehicle until called to avoid delay.
  • No dogs.
  • Coaches are asked to keep a 2m distance from the member, therefore stirrup length and girths must be checked by the riders accompanying person before leaving the car park area and starting the lesson.
  • Do not help with poo picking and pole lifting, this will be done by the coach in the arena. However please ensure the area around your trailer/lorry is cleared before you leave.
  • Parking of vehicles must be at least 10 metres apart.
  • All attendees at the training must observe the 2 metre social distancing rule.
  • All payments for training must be made in advance online.  
  • PPE will be provided for the first aider only. Please ensure you use hand washing or hand sanitiser before and after the session.
  • Please respect the venue we are using by not touching gates or fencing etc where possible. Be aware that there will be no toilet facilities so you must make your own provision for this.
  • Vaccinations will be accepted as long as they are within the 12 month period. Please be aware that should competitions start again, the 6 month rule will most likely apply.


I am sorry there are so many rules, however we want to keep you safe by following official guidelines. Are DC and Health and Safety Officer are well versed in the COVID-19 guidance and will update accordingly as Pony Club and Government Guidance dictate.. If you have any questions about the above please contact Liz Lovell or Claire Lambie
