As a rider at an affiliated centre, you will be able to work towards your certificates and achievement badges and learn to ride and care for horses and ponies by taking part in rallies and activities.


The rally is the backbone of The Pony Club. A working rally is one at which instruction is given. It may be either a mounted or unmounted rally. An unmounted rally is usually for horse and pony care instruction.

Rallies vary in length from an hour and a half to whole day rallies and even camps.

All mounted rallies follow a rally plan which are tailored to the level of the groups of riders attending.

The plans include a gear checking/safety brief, a 'lesson of the day' , a horse management lesson and games and activities.
