“I am permanently reminded of what a great organisation the pony club really is, memories that last a lifetime and I am so happy that my children are getting to experience it all with such an amazing team.  Thank you all.”  

At the Old Berks 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 backbone of the OBHPC is mounted rallies which take place throughout the area during the school holidays, weekends and evenings. Find out what is coming up on the Fixtures page and book early; 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. These rallies are generally group lessons taught by an experienced instructor covering a specific discipline, with the cost divided between the group and subsidised by the branch.

During the summer we hold Camps for Minis (under 8), Juniors (9-12) and a residential camp for Seniors (13 and over).

There are lots of opportunities for members to get involved in team competitions and represent the branch and members are encouraged to take part in the 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 jump judging at one of our competitions.
