Unfortunately, given the present situation regarding the ongoing risk of COVID19, the SMB Group (Brooksby Melton College) has taken the decision not to re-open Brooksby Equestrian Centre for commercial bookings and lessons. With this in mind, please do not contact us for bookings.
Come and Join the Pony Club at Brooksby Equestrian Centre!
The 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, the tests and achievement badges.
Brooksby Equestrian Centre is a Pony Club Centre so you don’t need your own horse so you can come and get to know our horses and ponies by taking part in stable management activities and ridden Pony Club rallies. Centre Membership cost £30 for the year and all members receive a welcome pack and a quarterly newsletter as well as lots of other benefits.
What is the Pony Club?
The Pony Club is ‘the’ starting place for anyone with an interest in horses and riding, who wants to learn and have fun in a safe and caring environment. Membership is open to anyone from five up to the age of 25; from total novices to those with more experience who aspire to the highest standards of riding and horse care, developed by training, assessment and access to a wide range of equestrian sports.
What will the Pony Club be doing?
Stable management activities will take place once a week where members will learn how to care for horses and ponies and be awarded achievement badges in a variety of topics. For our younger members there are mini badges available to achieve such as; Care of the Foot, Colours and Markings and Points of the Pony.
Older members are challenged further with a full achievement badge such as; saddlery, road rider and sequence of footfalls.
These sessions will cost £8 which includes an hour’s stable management training and a healthy snack and a drink and will take place on a Wednesday afternoon. Once the member has achieved the badge this will cost £1 which includes a certificate and felt badge. Most members sew this onto their Pony Club Sweaters to show off their achievements! Ask Joanne to find out more about our Pony Club clothing.
Once a month we will run a ridden rally. This is a themed hour group session for £15. Themes will include mounted games, dressage, show jumping, cross country and even some polocrosse! These will vary each month and members will be put into an appropriate riding group for their age and ability.
