Barguse is a registered Pony Club Centre and we offer a wide and varied list of activities in association with the Pony Club.
The aim of The Pony Club is to encourage young people to ride and enjoy all kinds of sport connected to horses and riding. It teaches young people the importance of proper care of their animals and aims to promote the highest ideals of sportsmanship, citizenship and loyalty. The Pony Club Centre membership is open to anyone under 21 years of age who either does not own a pony or cannot attend branch rallies due to lack of horse transport or other reason.
In order to become a Pony Club Centre member, you must join the Pony Club which costs a nominal amount per year (currently £26) which is payable to the Pony Club direct. Joining forms can be either picked up from us or downloaded direct from the Pony Club website. (Please make sure you download the Centre membership form and not branch)
Membership will enable your child to take part in achievement badge work, (there are over 40 badges) and also pony club efficiency tests up to AH standard (including the riding and road safety test), progressive tests in riding and horsemanship and the opportunity to compete in rallies and competitions throughout the year. Membership also includes third party insurance.
Throughout the year we run various badge evenings and mornings at a cost of £10. This is where your children can work towards each individual badge at their own pace and receive structured help on the various topics covered within the Pony Club which involves far more than just horses!
Rallies and competitions will be run throughout the holidays with Pony Club Centre members receiving reduced lesson and entry fees. We also hold our annual four day residential Pony Club camp during the summer holidays which is always hugely popular! You also have the option to purchase Barguse Pony Club sweatshirts from the office so that all the badges can be sewn on.
So, if you think that your child would like the opportunity to meet new friends, improve their riding skills and have fun, ask in the office for an enrolment form.
