ABOUT OBHPC

At the Old Berkshire Hunt Pony Club (OBHPC) we pride ourselves on being friendly and inclusive. We have around 300 members, the majority coming from the areas around Abingdon, Didcot, Wantage, Faringdon, Witney and Lambourn and an active committee to run the club, entirely made up of volunteers.

The core activity of the OBHPC is mounted rallies which take place throughout the area during the school holidays, weekends and evenings. These rallies are generally group lessons taught by an experienced Coach covering a specific discipline with the cost divided between the group.  Find out what is coming up on the Fixtures page and book early as popular rallies book up very fast. The rally organisers will be able to advise as to whether a particular rally is suitable for your child and it is important to be honest about their ability so that they are put in the right group.

During the summer we hold Camps for Trotters and  Minis (under 8), Juniors (8-12) and a residential camp for Seniors (12 and over).

There are lots of opportunities for members to get involved in team competitions and represent the branch. Members are also encouraged to take part in the Achievement Badge and Pony Club test system.

The more you get involved the more you will get out of your Pony Club, so sign up for rallies and encourage your parents to volunteer to help with anything from baking a cake to share at a rally to helping at Camps or at one of our competitions

TROTTERS  

If you are approx. 2yrs to about 5yrs, or up to 7 years and preferring to ride on the lead rein, you will be one of our fabulous Trotters.  Starting Pony Club life early is such a wonderful way to have so much fun with your friends, making new friends and learning along the way with your gorgeous ponies.    We have a super programme of rallies for our Trotters lots of variety from lessons, badges, fun and games, picnic hack, treasure hunt – it really is fantastic fun. Details of all activities are in the calendar section.

 Tell your friends to join us (they can have a free trial lesson) we really do love having lots of Trotters.
