For National Pony Club updates and information please go to
Area Teams

The Area Teams are open to all members with the ability to take part at Mini, Grassroots, Novice, Intermediate or Open standard.

We arrange training for each discipline to enable our members to achieve the best that they can at the Area Competitions, which allow them to qualify for the Championships.

2022 Trainers

Team Trainers  Susan Bowman  and Danni Little                                           

Members must be out competing at the level they wish to be considered for selection for an Area team place  or individual place. Please look at each discipline for guidelines on heights, levels  etc.                                                                                                                              

Training for teams will begin in May/June but members are encouraged to attend rallies that are held throughout the year.

Rule books are available on the main Pony Club website, with details of eligibility and competition regulations. Area competitors should either purchase or download a copy and read  the rules themselves.

All horses and ponies taking part in any Pony Club event must be fully vaccinated, and with a six month booster for area and championship competitions.  Please see rule book for full details.

To be eligible for area competitions members must be registered 1 month before the area competition.  Members and their ponies/horses wanting to take part in area competitions should also have attended at least 3 rallies In the last year. There are still lots of rallies to come.  If you have a new pony/horse and it is rallied at a previous pony club it will only need to attend 1 rally with CFHN to be eligible. Each member and pony/horse can be rallied separately. (i.e. someone else can rally your pony for you).

The Pony Club has this rule to avoid members joining to only take part in area competitions and to encourage members to attend rallies and training to improve there riding and pony care skills and knowledge.

Please read the following attachment which highlights some important points if you are taking part in Pony Club Competitions.
