Interested in learning more about caring for ponies? 
Come and join FFRS Pony Club 
Fletchers Farm Riding School is a Pony Club Centre and offers any child from 5 years upwards the opportunity to learn about and practice pony care. As an approved centre, we offer access for children to learn all about ponies and stable management whilst achieving badges, in a fun and safe environment with trained instructors, along with meeting friends and enjoying trips and days out. Pony Club riding tests and awards are available once a year (children will need to be in regular lessons to ensure they are practicing at the right level and must be members of the national Pony Club organisation to sit these).

Interested in learning more about caring for ponies? 
Come and join FFRS Pony Club 
FFRS is an approved Pony Club Centre and offers non-ridden, fortnightly fun sessions that cover pony care and the chance to earn badges – like a Brownie group but about ponies! 
Any child can join the groups – if they have previous pony care experience join the Pony Club Ponies group, or if your child is new at horse riding but want to learn more, try the Pony Club Foals group. 
Sessions cover a wide range of practical hands on activities such as grooming, as well as learning about saddlery, health, field & stable care plus games and quizzes. These sessions will compliment children’s riding lessons and give them more of an all-round understanding of the sport and pony care. 
Pony Club Ponies – fortnightly 13.30-15.00 - Saturdays from 31st October 
Pony Club Foals – fortnightly 13.30-15.00 - Saturdays from 7th November 
Cost: All sessions are £15.00 - To book online please click here to go to the calendar page 
If you are interested in your child attending a session please email to request a form from the office prior to booking (email to : reception@fletchersfarm.co.uk). 
Look forward to seeing you all! 
T&C - Sessions must be booked prior to the day with payment over the telephone. Sessions are non-refundable and cannot be moved forward to another date once booked. 
Spaces will be limited each week so please book early to avoid disappointment. 
The Pony Club is a national organisation that promotes childrens’ involvement with learning about pony care and horse riding - details on how to join their organisation can be found on their website www.pcuk.org  
Covid & session requirements: 
All children attending must bring their own clean gloves to wear. Please ensure these are brought with them otherwise they will not be able to groom or handle stable equipment etc and will only be able to watch in that session. 
Riding hats and boots will be required for any contact with the ponies, if your child does not have an up to standard riding hat these can be booked ahead of the day for use at £3 – we can not do this on the day. If your child does not have a hat with them or have one prebooked they will only be able to watch these parts of that session. 
If your child shows any coronavirus symptoms on the day please do not attend the site but leave a message on 01206 242210 to let staff know not to expect them. 
Children will be reminded to social distance at all times, if there is a problem with following our guidelines on site we will contact you to discuss how to improve this. 
Please pack your child any drinks/snacks they may require as well as hand sanitiser and a pen/pencil. 
Please pack weather appropriate clothing - we run an outdoor sport and are quite likely to be getting wet and muddy at times. 
Children will meet on the grass outside the large outdoor arena and be collected from the same area. Only one adult is allowed on site for drop off and collection, all other people must stay in the car. 
Completion of a form is not a guarantee of a space each week - spaces must be booked individually each fortnight and are limited. 

About the Pony Club  

The Pony Club is an international voluntary youth organisation for youngsters interested in ponies and riding. It is the largest association of riders in the world. A majority of the most successful riders in all disciplines of British equestrian competition have been Members of The Pony Club. 
The objectives are: 
To encourage young people to ride and to learn to enjoy all kinds of sport connected with horses and riding 
To give instruction in riding and horse mastership and to educate Members to look after and to take proper care of their animal 
To promote the highest ideals of sportsmanship, citizenship and loyalty to create strength of character and self-discipline 
Membership is available to children until the end of The Pony Club Year or the Centre Membership Subscription Year, whichever is relevant, in which they become 21 years old.  
What is Centre Membership? 
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. Riding schools around the country become linked to the Pony Club, and through this link, can offer the Pony Club tests and badges to their clients. There are currently over 500 Pony Club Linked Centres in the UK and over 15,000 non pony owning young riders taking part in Pony Club activities. 

How to Join 

Pony Club Centre Membership is available to all children and young people up to the age of 21. Pony Club Centre Membership is £36 for one year and includes personal liability insurance for members at our UK Centres. Membership forms should be obtained from the Pony Club Centre that you wish to join. When completed, please send the form to The Pony Club head office with payment. Once received, a new member's pack will be sent out to the member.
