Like many other Pony Club branches, our branch is named after the hunt pack whose country cover the area where our members live. It still keeps strong links with the Curre & Llangibby Hunt.

 

Our branch was founded in 1958. Amongst its celebrity former members include top international showjumpers Mary Broome and Liz Edgar and current junior showjumping European silver medallist James Winter.

 

We are in Pony Club Area 10, which covers South Wales and the Borders and regularly compete with other branches in the area.

 

We are proud to be one of the friendliest branches around. Everyone is encouraged to join in activities whatever your age, ability or particular interest!

 

We actively encourage parents and guardians to get involved and are pleased to give help and advice.

 

What we do…

Our branch year is jam-packed with activities which include something for everyone, whether you are an ambitious competitive rider or simply want to have some fun whilst improving your riding and pony care skills.

Rallies

The most important regular activities are monthly rallies which take place throughout the year.  Everyone, whatever your age or ability, are welcome.  Most rallies involve both riding instruction and horse & pony care learning.  They all involve LOTS OF FUN with your horse or pony and your friends.

Tests and badges

You’ll have the chance to work towards a range of achievement badges linked to horses and the countryside. You’ll also be encouraged and supported to polish your riding and care skills to work up through the highly-respected Pony Club tests.

Competitions and training

We organise our own competitions for members of all abilities. In addition we have active training programmes in all the disciplines shown in the links on the left of this page. Our teams compete at inter-branch, area and national level.

Camp

The highlight of the year. A week of non-stop riding and fun with friends, tailored to suit your ability level.  Seniors can also go to their own tailored two-day training camp.

Getting together

Now and again we just get together just to have some fun, either at one of our regular club nights or for a quiz, a family walk or BBQ.
