Hello and welcome to the Isle of Wight Branch of the Pony Club Website

Our Pony club has excellent facilities on the Island with a field, sand school and a pavilion in Whippingham

We hold a variety of events and training sessions through out the year, including our very successful and long running camps every summer, which for many island children (and adults) has been the highlight of the year for the past 40+ years

If you have any questions about our events please do not hesitate to contact one of our committee members, who can be found in contacts

Branch membership is for those that own their own pony.

All Pony Club memberships and renewals should now be made via the Members’ Portal, or in the case of a Family, via the membership form sent to membership@pcuk.org. It is no longer possible to renew over the phone.

INDIVIDUAL MEMBERSHIPS (those with less than 3 riding members in the same household).

NEW Members should use the Members’ Portal – follow the top tips on the Join Us section of The Pony Club website: https://pages.pcuk.org/join/

RENEWING/LAPSED Members

  • If membership has expired in 2021, you will have received renewal invites (4 weeks and 2 weeks before your expiry date and then a final email 2 weeks AFTER expiring)
  • Click on the link the most recent invite we have you sent to you to access the Members’ Portal
    • NB: this link is unique to you and the password held in the Members Database, so you cannot log in successfully without it.
  • Using the online portal, you will be able to check and update any contact details, and members and pay online.
  • You will not be able to change the branch or membership type (Riding or Non-riding) – if you need to do this please contact your branch to initiate the transfer process or contact membership@pcuk.org to change your membership type.

Membership forms can still be emailed to membership@pcuk.org however please allow up to 10 working days for these to be processed in the system. Please ensure you consider this when planning to attend rallies.

The most immediate, and safest, way to join or renew is via the Members’ Portal.

FAMILY MEMBERSHIPS

If you have a family membership, or want to add members to create a family membership, you will need to download the membership form either from your branch website or https://pcuk.org/find-a-club/ complete the form and email to membership@pcuk.org OR by post to the address on the form.

Membership fees:

Non-riding member £36; riding member £80 and family memberships £200 (up to 5 members in the same household).

Important Changes to Membership Structure in 2020

From 1st January 2020, branch membership changed to a 12 month rolling membership. This means that, for example, a new member joining on 10th January 2020 would be due for renewal on 9th January 2021, or a member joining on 20th June 2020 would be due for renewal on 19th June 2021.

Please also note the following points:

  • Members can renew up to 3 months before expiry to ensure there is no break in membership, e.g. a member due for renewal on 31st January 2020 can renew anytime in January, in which case their subscription would run from 1st February 2020 – 31st January 2021.
  • If a member doesn’t renew before their expiry date, they will need to renew before they can attend any Pony Club activities, e.g. if a member was due to renew on 31st January and didn’t renew until 15th February, they would not be able to attend any Pony Club activities from 1st – 14th Feb. In this case their subscription would run from 15th Feb 2020 – 14th Feb 2021.

 

 

We are now also on Facebook where you can also find details of our events.
