At WVPC you can attend both mounted and dismounted rallies (group lessons) throughout the year. You will be taught by experienced PC accredited instructors. As your ability improves, if you wish to, you will be able to take various proficiency tests (please see the PC Test page of the website) to mark your achievements.

Very briefly the levels are split as follows:


Aimed at children aged 3 to 9, and older children who are nervous. ‘Minis’ is about having fun, meeting new friends, growing in confidence and learning how to ride and care for ponies.
