The Pony Club is an international voluntary youth organisation for young people, up to the age of 25, interested in horses, ponies, and riding. Founded in England in 1929, and granted independent charitable status on 1st January 1997, there are around 330 Branches and 300 Linked Riding Centres in the UK alone. The Pony Club is represented in no less than 27 countries with a worldwide membership exceeding 110,000, making it the largest association of young riders in the world.

Hambledon Hunt North Pony Club is located within Area 13 and has over 100 members between the ages 5-25 years old. We are a medium size pony club covering the Meon Valley in Hampshire. The club encourages a wide level of riding and a range of different activities including rallies and camps.

Our instructors have vast amounts of experience in all areas of horsemanship. They offer a wide range of training including cross country, show jumping and flatwork.

The club has excellent facilities at Warnford in Hampshire, with a large outdoor arena, with a full show jumping/arena eventing course and dressage boards, and a large field for cross country training and grass dressage tests. We also use other venues in the area. In the Summer we hold a junior day camp at our Warnford site and a senior residential camp is held at an offsite venue with excellent facilities.

The club welcomes all levels those who wish to compete and those who just wish to learn.  Our teams have had much success with children attending both national and regional finals. Several of our members have also gone on to represent Great Britain.

Members are encouraged to take the pony club efficiency tests form E-A, Riding and Road Safety and pony club badge rallies. Each year we hold an awards evening to celebrate those children and ponies with the greatest achievements for the previous year.

Members are expected to have good manners, good sportsmanship and excellent turn out when representing the club and we wish to ensure children have fun in their learning what ever their chosen discipline.

Please Contact our District commissioners Sarah Mosse or Victoria Cobden for further details.
