Pony Club 

Kemberton Pony Club Centre opened at Easter 2013 with an extremely enthusiastic and friendly bunch of Pony Clubbers. 

Hannah, Rachel and the team run an action packed holiday programme supporting the Sunday Club 9am-1pm every week for members to practise their horse care skills and work towards achievement badges.

In line with Pony Club regulations all staff and volunteers are CRB checked and all supervising staff hold first aid certificates. The Pony Club really does offer young people a safe hand on opportunity to develop their equine skills.

For our older members, Young Equestrians is a relatively new scheme for 13-18 year olds to exercise their independence with equestrianism. 

Young Equestrians will make new friends, develop new skills, try out some of the different horse sports available and get fit in the fresh air! No Matter what level riding, Young Equestrians can offer more than just the opportunity to ride.

Young Equestrians has been designed to provide members with more choice and freedom, helping to develop skills including leadership whilst taking responsibility for the activities they themselves take part in with new friends.

By registering with YELA and helping at the yard, members can record voluntary hours and gain nationally recognised certificates that will boost records of achievement.
