OBH Chilterns branch was established in 1968 when the Old Berkeley Hunt West was split into three new branches.  We are part of Pony Club Area 12, the Northern Home Counties.

We have members aged from 5 to 25 years old.  As a member of our club you will have the opportunity to study for and take tests which enable you to learn progressively about riding and horse and pony care.  The tests are taken at recommended ages and are taken with certain objectives in mind.  Details of the tests can be found on the Main Pony Club web pages.

We aim to provide a full programme of activities throughout the year, including both competitive and non-competitive activities.  The highlight however is Pony Club Camp which we hold at the start of the Summer holidays. 

Training is provided in the form of Rallies and squad training sessions.  In the Spring/Summer these will normally take place at our Pony Club Field in Bellingdon.  During the winter months rallies are held at a variety of locations including Chiltern Cottage, St Leonards and Flamstead farm Ashley Green.  In addition we run a Stable Management/Badge session in each school half term and holiday.

Then in October we run an Arena Tetrathlon.  This has become one of the highlights of the Pony Club Tetrathlon calendar attracting entrants from all over the South East of England.  

The Pony Club has strong links with hunting and you are welcome to join meets of our local hunt The Kimblewick Hunt.  Our Hunting Co-ordinator will provide you with details and organise an escort for you.

We always welcome new members of all ages and abilities – so please contact us about joining our Branch.
