This website is for all Vale of Aylesbury Pony Club (VAHPC) members, parents and for you if you are thinking of joining.

It has been designed to provide you with information on us, the different equestrian disciplines, how to join and all we have to offer in the way of training, rallies, activities, and other ridden and social events. The Programme for Members will contain details of all rallies and training days and how to book onto these. If having looked through the site you cannot find what you are looking for please contact one of our committee members.

The Vale of Aylesbury Hunt Branch was established in 1931 and is part of the Pony Club Area 12 which reaches into Buckinghamshire, Oxfordshire and Hertfordshire. Today we have approximately 120 members comprising a good balance of mini’s (4 – 8 years), juniors (8 – 11), seniors (11 –18) and Associates ( 21-25). Our club field is in Meadle, Buckinghamshire which we use regularly during the summer and we have use of several other venues both indoor and outdoor, across the county.

A very friendly club, we encourage all our members to take part in as many disciplines as they can and we, often with great success, field teams at local and area level in show jumping, tetrathlon, mounted games, eventing, dressage and prix caprilli. We hope in the future to also have a polo team.

Some of our members are very competitive others just enjoy riding, learning about looking after their ponies and the companionship that membership of the club offers. Whatever the ambitions of our members the majority come together for our Pony Club camp week – a real highlight of the year which is thoroughly enjoyed by members of all ages and levels of experience.
