Pony Club  

Pony club will restart mid-March 2018 and run until the end of November 2018. 
 
As an approved centre, we offer access to children to learn all about pony care and stable management whilst achieving badges and exams, in a fun and safe environment with trained instructors. 
To join any of our sessions you will need to be a member of the national Pony Club (this is separate to the Fletchers Farm Riding School Loyalty Scheme). Please ask for a form in the office to apply for Pony Club membership. If you are not currently a member, you are welcome to try one session first before joining. We require that you bring your Pony Club membership cards with you to sessions as everyone’s joining dates will be different depending on when they were due to renew. For more details on the pony club please visit: www.pcuk.org and you can pick up an application form in our office. 
This year at Fletchers Farm, we will be offering two options: 
 
Cobs (E/D Test Sessions) – This group will have a two and a half hour session that is aimed at preparation for the ridden E/D Test (up to Silver level, however the actual exam is optional) as well as doing achievement badges and having fun along the way! There will be training and stable management and some riding during the session (however we recommend the riding in this group is to compliment the child’s normal riding lessons especially if they intend to do the exam). To join this group children must be able to walk and trot on their own. 
 
Shires (D+/C/Platinum Test Sessions) – This group is for more advanced riders. It will involve a two and a half hour training session each fortnight. Riders must be able to canter and have passed their D Test to join this group. There will be stable management appropriate to this level and some riding (however we recommend the riding in this group is to compliment the riders normal riding lessons). There will be a mock exam for this group on Saturday 15th September and it is strongly advisable that children attend this exam if they intend to do their test in October. 
Members who hold their Platinum text and who are working towards C+, are welcome to join the advanced group. We offer the chance to book individual training sessions tailored towards the needs of the higher exams, please speak to Helen or Jackie for further details. 
Mock exam session – Saturday 15th September 2018 for the advanced group 
(riders from the novice group are welcome to book on this also) 
Exam day – Monday 29th October 2018 
 
Both groups will run fortnightly (please see dates below) on a Saturday morning 09.30-12.00. The cost will be £25 per session payable in payments of 4 sessions at a time which will cover two months attendance and a waiting list will operate for each group once it is full. Please note we allow for two Saturdays holiday time (without paying) during the pony club year. If you require more than this time away from the sessions without paying to reserve your space, then the space may be offered to someone on the waiting list. If you would like to make a discounted one-off payment for the year then the cost will be £385. 
 
All sessions will include games and other activities appropriate to the children’s level of experience and ages. We will also be holding various days out and trips so please keep an eye on the notice boards and our website/facebook for details.
