NEC ‘Pony Club Centre’ is aimed at children of all ages and abilities who don’t have their own pony and would like to develop their horsemanship. Currently there are over 40 members ranging from age 6 to 21.

We have a very active programme including a variety of rallies e.g. achievement badges, pony club tests, showjumping, games, dressage, lunge lessons, stable management, cross country and of course an annual camp. We have a large indoor school and are able to run all year round. Teaching is mainly by Jenny Christie, with other Nenthorn or external teachers being brought in when suitable. Normally children are asked to be at a rally for an hour ahead of riding to get their own ponies ready, and for an hour  afterwards to care for it and turn it out.  This is really valuable experience and working with the horses on the ground is great for building confidence. One of the other benefits of membership is a reduced rate at certain events at NEC.

If your child would like to join, please contact Jenny in the first instance.

For more information on the aims & activities of the The Pony Club please see their website.

OFF-ROAD RIDING We are trying to improve our off-road riding possibilities, so that we can have safer hacking out. It would be appreciated if parents could write letters, 'To whom it may concern', stating that their child benefits from hacking out & that they support our efforts to imrove the safety aspect. Alison has some examples already written if you'd like to see & she will collect them all together
