Throughout the year we provide our members with a range of different training which is posted and updated monthly Via our Online Bookings and Members facebook page. Our fantastic instructors include; Hannah Esberger-Hancock, Vikki Hayton,  Lisa Morris, Nicola Baguley, Helen Howard, Charlotte Heath Smith, Sian Somerset Hobson, Selina Cawkwell Finneran, Rachel Ashworth, Tinky Morris. We know spoilt for choice.

Camp is an excellent week in the summer holidays for you and your pony to have lots of fun with other similar aged people, and learn lots of new things at the same time. We cover all the disciplines from, Dressage, xcountry ,water-schooling and Show Jumping.

We are very committed to providing test training for our members, whether you be aiming for E test or your A test, see ‘test training’ tab for more info of what’s involved.  Our Chief Instructors will be happy to  answer your questions about progressive tests.

We send teams to Area, which is the qualification process through to the pony club championships, in all three disciplines, SJ, Eventing and dressage, which are usually held in July and August. You have to be a member in that year before the 31st Jan to take part and you have completed 3 rallies, in order to be eligible. There are also junior competitions, which although don’t qualify to the championships, it gives a great experience and means you are ready to be competitive when you are ready to take part at a higher level. We have been very successful at Area and the Championships in previous years and we would love to keep this going.

In previous years we have sent a team for the Burghley horse trials PC team SJ, which is between 1.05m and 1.10m. Watch the website for training which will be held in preperation for this however members need to be selected for this prestigious event (and also for Rockingham, Chatsworth and Osberton).

The Dengie competitions are held in SJ and Dressage and are held in the winter months. Firstly there are prelimary rounds held around area 6 which takes through qualifiers in each section, novice and open. If you qualify from there you go onto the area competition and qualification from there send you to the Championships held at Moreton Morrell in early April. We have been very successful in the Dengie dressage at the championships, and have sent members in novice and open sections. See the ‘news/ grove success’ for this years championship results for our members. See the main pony club website regarding the Dengie.

MAINLY HAVE FUN!!!
