We know this has been eagerly awaited .. We are pleased to announce our Pony Club Centre activities launch on Friday 6th June.
Children who ride at Braeside Equestrian Centre have the opportunity to join the Pony Club, which is the fourth largest Youth Organisation in the United Kingdom.
The Pony Club Centre Membership scheme allows children who do not own their own ponies to benefit from Personal (Third Party) Liability Insurance as well as having fun learning how to look after ponies and increasing their knowledge about the countryside and all things equine!
The objectives of The Pony Club are:
• To encourage young people to ride and learn to enjoy all kinds of sport connected with horses and riding.
• To provide instruction in riding and horsemanship and to instil in Members the proper care of ponies and horses.
• To promote the highest ideals of sportsmanship, citizenship and loyalty, thereby cultivating strength of character and self-discipline.
There is an annual subscription payable to Pony Club Headquarters at Stoneleigh (currently £25) and a small fee payable to Braeside Equestrian Centre for each activity we run.
Braeside Pony Club Centre
Braeside Pony Club Centre meets twice a month on the first and third Friday evening of every month from 5pm to 7pm.
In these sessions, which are un-mounted, we work towards improving their knowledge about the countryside, looking after ponies and all things equine.
This is thirsty work so fruit squash and biscuits are provided on the night. £8 per child per session.
During the school holidays we hold pony mornings of three or four hours duration when the children ride as well as doing stable management and games.
This gives the children the opportunity to gain their Achievement Badges (of which there are over 50 to collect!) in various topics.
The Achievement Badge is a cloth badge to be sewn on their sweatshirt.
Hand-outs are given on the various topics and the children do projects on the different subjects.
To register your child a place please call the office on 01268 773034
