Pony ClubThe Pony Clubs Centre Membership Scheme was introduced in 1998 so that children and young people without their own pony could join and take part in Pony Club activities, tests and achievement badges. Deen City Farm’s Pony Club is just one of over 750 centres in the UK and operates as part of the national Pony Club, it’s open to anyone under the age of 21 years.
Riding schools around the country become linked to The Pony Club, and through this link, we can offer the Pony Club tests and badges to our members. We also take teams to some of the regional Pony Club competitions, and have also qualified for the National Championships!
Our pony club usually runs on Saturdays and costs £7.00 (£9.00 for non members) per session, is open to children over 8 yo with and interest in all things to do with horses. Please note, our Pony Club sessions do not include riding and need to be booked in advance online.
