Lanarkshire and Renfrewshire Hunt Pony Club Branch

The Lanarkshire & Renfrewshire Hunt Branch was established in 1934 and is part of Pony Club Area 19.  It covers a wide area of West Central Scotland.  There are about 50 members at present.  The Branch offers participation in dressage, showjumping, eventing and tetrathlon, and although we do not have an active games team, we try to include this at rallies.  We have a full rally and training  programme with outdoor summer rallies running weekly, as long as weather and ground conditions allow, and monthly indoor winter rallies.

If you would like to join us email lanarkshirerenfrewshire@pcuk.org. We will be running a free taster session over the Summer to introduce new members to Pony Club. Please contact us for details.

“As a member of the Pony Club, I stand for the best in sportsmanship as well as in horsemanship”


Lanarkshire and Renfrewshire Hunt Pony Club

Pony Club is an international voluntary organisation, dedicated to encouraging young people to ride and to care for horses and ponies, whilst promoting the highest ideals of sportsmanship.

Volunteers are the backbone of The Pony Club. The Pony Club could not provide young riders with all the fantastic opportunities it does, without the dedication and time given by the huge body of volunteers it has. Lanarkshire and Renfrewshire Hunt Pony Club is one of 21 branches of the pony club within Area 19.

We cater for all levels of rider, with activities for everyone from those looking to have lots of fun with their ponies to those looking to compete to a high level – with opportunities to qualify for the Pony Club Championships.   Lots of fun events both on ponies and on foot, and some great friendships to be made along the way.

Child Protection

We are, at all times,  fully committed to the safeguarding and protection of our members and this is clearly defined in the Pony Club Child Protection Policy.  Any child protection concerns or issues should be raised with the District Commissioner in the first instance.

It is becoming increasingly necessary for any person who helps/cares/supervises children, other than their own, at any Pony Club event, to be a member of the PVG scheme and to be affiliated through it to Pony Club. To become a member is quick and easy to do and is free to all volunteers.

If you are not already a member of the scheme, an Application to Join PVG Scheme form should be completed and submitted to Disclosure Scotland.

If you are already a member of the scheme, but not affiliated to Pony Club, then an Existing PVG Scheme Member Application is required to be completed, affiliating you to Pony Club.

Lesley Burns is our current ID checker for the submission of PVG forms. She will supply the necessary forms, explain how they are to be completed and what identification you will need to bring in order to complete the form. It takes approximately 10 minutes to complete the application form.

Please see attached for further details of where PVG’s are required and details of the information and documents you will need to complete an application.
