2018 Pony Club Talent Pathway Scheme

Please see details below with regards to applications for the Pony Club Talent Pathway Scheme which is for members competing confidently at 90cm / Novice Dressage and above. You can apply directly for the selection days, but it will help if you have attended some of the Area 9 Training dates before hand.
If you do decide to apply please let me know so that I can support your application, places will be limited so you will need to apply as soon as possible.

Supported by Aberyswyth University, The Pony Club Talent Pathway scheme will return in 2018 with selection days taking place across the country.This scheme is for Members who want to develop their ability in Show Jumping, Dressage and Eventing and offers:

  • Area Training Days for riders to get tips and advice from top class coaches (candidates DO NOT have to attend a training day to progress to a selection day)
  • Regional Selection Days where participants will get training and feedback to help their future development in their chosen sport
  • National Camp where those riders chosen from the selection days work with sport-specific coaches, and benefit from both mounted and dismounted sessions

Six Members will then be selected to form the Pony Club Talent Pathway Squad 2018 benefitting from support of an experienced mentor, a training bursary plus further training opportunities.

Selection days are in April and each candidate will take part in 2 x 45 minute sessions:

  • Dressage – 2 x Dressage Sessions
