2021 – Whaddon Chase’s 90th Anniversary year

 “As a member of The Pony Club, I stand for the best in Sportsmanship as well as in Horsemanship.

I shall compete for the enjoyment of the game well played and take winning or losing in my stride, remembering that without good manners and good temper, sport loses its cause for being.

I shall endeavour to treat my horse with consideration.”

 A very warm welcome to the Whaddon Chase Branch of The Pony Club.  We pride ourselves of being a very friendly and inclusive Branch, with opportunities for everyone irrespective of age (3-25), or ability, to join in as much as they want to.  Our membership continues to grow, and we look forward to meeting you all.

Proof that Pony Club Friendships last a lifetime!
This picture was taken at Toby Grafftey-Smith’s “celebration of life” in June.    They are all in their (late) 40’s and, along with Toby, have been best of friends since meeting in WCPC in 1978.   Lots of references to the fun that they all had at camp in their early teens!  The “rock star lot’ all thought that pony club was some sort of rave scene!
