At Scunthorpe and District Pony Club we are dedicated to providing a wide variety of superb experiences for our young equestrians (aged 4-25years).  Members enjoy rallies including Le Trec and Pony Racing alongside more typical sports of Showjumping, Dressage, Eventing and Games.  Our superb team of instructors, from all walks of equestrian life, provide high-quality learning experiences in a fun and structured way.

 

Riders waiting their turnOur Pony Club is so lucky to call the beautiful Normanby Park estate ‘Home’.  ‘Bagmoor’ has acres of sandy, well-drained grassland to ride in with our own dedicated cross country course. Here we hold our main events and summer rallies and training.  

 

 

 

 

What We Do

Our instructors provide educational Rallies for many types of equestrian sport including Dressage, Showjumping and Cross-country, on our own course and at other facilities in the area.  They also provide competition preparation at our training rallies. A trophy and rosette

Pony Club Camp in August is one of the highlights of the year.

We run three annual  Open Events open to equestrians of all ages from across the locality

Our Teams compete against other Branches in Area 6 attending Regional events in June and July and Championships in August.  Teams also compete at the prestigious Chatsworth and Burghley Horse Trials. 

Members can work towards their Efficiency Tests which is a progressive series of highly-respected qualifications which are widely recognised. 

We celebrate Easter and Christmas with fun and fancy dress rides and our Annual Presentation Night held in December at Normanby Cricket Club.
