Acorn Equestrian Centre’s Pony Club is held on a Sunday morning from 11am – 12:30pm fortnightly for each group. The groups are split according to riders ability and this is determined through their riding groups. The groups are joined together with the Falabellas & Exmoors groups coming one week and Welsh & New Forests groups coming the following Sunday.
We welcome all ages and ability of children to our pony club. Our goal is to help the members progress in their riding and stable management skills through gaining badges and certificates including the non equine badges through hands on experience. Being a Pony Club member at Acorn also allows you to come up and volunteer (Acorn Helper) on the yard providing you are 11 years+.
The key benefits of being a member!
- Our members can learn a range of skills through the Pony Club’s popular achievement badge scheme and gain sew-on badges to prove their knowledge.
- The Pony Club Efficiency Tests provide an excellent basis for any equine enthusiast
- We Organise Summer Camps, Days out, Competitions and equine professionals come in to do demonstrations and talks.
- Members are insured for equestrian related personal liability (3rd Party) 24 hours a day.
Not all of our Pony Club members are official PCUK members, however we now recommend for our members to be, we try to encourage this because when someone is not a official member they cannot gain their PCUK badges, and riding awards. If your child is not a member or your membership had lapsed, please make sure they are aware of this. They all tend to have an expectation of earning a badge when they are being handed out etc.. Which is disappointing for them if not received.
We hope you agree that these changes are required ad are a positive change for both our Pony Club members and also our general riders at Acorn Equestrian Centre. If you have any queries please fo not hesitate to speak to your instructor or any member of staff at Acorn Equestrian Centre.
