Our friendly training sessions are organised for different age groups and we are lucky to have access to some fantastic coaches to help our riders improve and get the best out of their riding. We also hold treasure hunts, stable management sessions, run training for for pony club tests and also teach our members about stable management and pony care through our Pony Club badges programme.

We have a very successful track record competing at regional Area (County) qualifiers and National level each year, giving great experience to members who are looking for the opportunity to compete at a higher level.
