Welcome to SOHC!











The South Oxfordshire Hunt Central Branch was formed in 1961 and is part of Area 12.  We are one of the smallest but most active branches of the Pony Club, known for providing a healthy balance of fun, friendship and competition for all ages and abilities. Our members range from 4 years to 22 years old and come from Stadhampton, Great Milton, Oxford, Thame, Haddenham and the surrounding areas.













The Branch is headed by our District Commissioner Tamsin Woods, assisted by Anita Baker.  Working alongside them is an enthusiastic Committee who organise a broad programme of mounted and dismounted activities for members to have fun and improve their riding and equitation at the same time.









Activities constantly evolve to meet our members wishes and goals, but include rallies, fun-rides, stable management, quizzes, area squad training and trips, as well as our own Summer Show, Eventer Challenge and Triathlon.









Our members regularly compete at the Regional and National Championships in the key disciplines of SJ, Eventing and Dressage and Tetrathlon.

  • Upon arrival to a training session think about where you are parking and the proximity to others when moving around your vehicle with and without your horse.
  • Please do not greet other members closer than 2 metres and do not congregate in groups larger than those allowed.
  • If spectating because your child is being taught, you will be included in the ‘gathering’ number if you are within the perimeter of the ridden arena, or similar space within a field. Observe the appropriate distance to ensure the safety of the coach, riders, and other spectators.
  • You must abide by all venue rules, they have specific policies and procedures in place to ensure everyone’s safety, please follow these.

The guidelines are constantly changing but we will try to keep everyone informed via email.
