Welcome to OBH North Branch  

Established in 1959 we are proud to be celebrating our 60th Anniversary.  OBH North has always been a very active branch with over 50 members, whose ages range from 4 to 24.  Some members are very competitive in dressage, jumping, eventing, mounted games and tetrathlon, while others just enjoy riding, looking after their ponies the companionship that being in a club offers.  We run a wide range of activities throughout the year, which include Summer camp, rallies, competitions, tests and achievement badges, horse and pony care and social activities.

Various Pony Club tests can be taken which measure the children’s riding ability and general knowledge regarding the care and stable management of their horses and ponies.  

OBH North Thelwell’s Club  

The aim of the Thelwell’s club is to encourage our members to have fun with their ponies and make new friends.  The Thelwell’s section is aimed at all levels of young rider from the very beginner through to our older members.  From picnic rides, treasure hunts, pony care & pizza sessions, mounted and unmounted games, fun show jumping and much more, there are plenty of activities for everyone to enjoy.
