Here you will find everything you need to know about Pony Club at Clyne.
What is Pony Club?
The Pony Club is an international voluntary youth organisation for young people interested in ponies and riding. Founded in England in 1929, and granted independent charitable status on 1st January 1997, there are around 345 Branches and 480 Centres in the UK. The Pony Club has been the starting point for a large majority of equestrian team members and medal winners. The Pony Club is represented in 27 countries with a worldwide membership exceeding 110,000 making it the largest association of young riders in the world. Membership is open at any young person under the age of 25.
The objectives of The Pony Club are:
~ to encourage young people to ride and to learn to enjoy all kinds of sport connected with horses and riding.
~ to give instruction in riding and horsemastership and to educate Members to look after and to take proper care of their animal.
~to promote the highest ideals of sportsmanship, citizenship and loyalty to create strength of character and self-discipline.
Clyne Farm Centre is an official Pony Club Centre (Please note that our details have not been added to the Pony Club website yet) where children can learn about horses and pony care as well as improving their riding, all whilst working towards a variety of badges and achievements.
What are the Pony Club Badges?
Pony Club offer lots of different fun badges and tests.
~ Achievement Badges.
~ Mini Achievement Badges.
~ Competition Badges.
~ Efficiency Tests.
~ Progressive Tests.
The number of sessions each badge takes to complete will vary. Children are welcome to book onto individual sessions. However we recommend that Members should attend each week to ensure they can complete the full criteria of badge and test syllables required. If a child does miss a week then we will try and assist them to make up what they missed at future a Pony Club session so they can finish the badge. Once the badge/test is completed you will have an opportunity to buy the badge.
