Become a Pony Club Member

Northington Stud and Stables is a Pony Club Centre!

Pony Club logoBeing a member of the Pony Club isn’t just for those who own or loan a pony.  Anyone can take part  – all you need is a love of all things horsey and get ready to enjoy the fun!

 

There are plenty of activities to join in with and you can complete a range of Pony Club Tests and Achievement Badges.  It’s all about improving your riding, taking care of ponies, learning more about them and having fun with your friends.

BECOME A MEMBER

We’ve been really looking forward to becoming a Pony Club Centre.  It’s a great way for us as a riding school to get more young people involved with horses and ponies, without them needing to own their own pony. New Members joining for the first time between 1st July 2019 and 31st August 2019 are charged a reduced subscription of £50, which covers them until 31st January 2020.

EARN BADGES

From Mini Achievement Badges for Horse Clothing, Beach Riding, Camping, Pony Behaviour, Points of the Pony and many more for younger riders, all the way through to Progressive Tests and Competition Badges for those who are a little more advanced, there are plenty of badges to work towards.

Introducing Lucy and Rufus’ Stable Life

Hi!  My name is Lucy.  You might well have seen me at Northington Stud and Stables.  Francesca (riding instructor and owner of the yard) is my mum so I’m there quite often!

I have a pony called Rufus who I keep at the yard.  He is super sweet and even though he is mine, people still ride him because I don’t mind.

Rufus is 12.hh so quite small but some big people have ridden him.  He used to be a livery owned by a very tall girl called Ruby but she got too big for him and so he was passed on to me.

I love spending time with the stable girls, practising for shows in spring and summer, learning to ride side-saddle, jumping, and lots, lots more!  Fran is AMAZING – she helps me with all my riding.  She sometimes even pays me for helping out!

Pony gossip, showing you how to pick out hooves or groom your pony, plaiting, more about how to look after your pony and telling what I’ve been up to with Rufus, I’ll be sharing lots of things that we do at the yard on here so stay tuned!
