Pony Club

Join the worlds' largest association of young riders and your local group here at Barton End!


  •    You don’t have to have your own pony/horse to be part of the pony club.
  •    We will teach you how to care for a pony or horse, as if it were your own.
  •    We learn stable management, watch demos, take part in competitions and ride.
  •    We hold badge days where you can show off the skills that you have learned and earn badges.
  •    There are opportunities to take test certificates, have fun, play games and meet new friends.

Sessions are held on Sunday:

We had a brilliant afternoon on Sunday with the wonderful Penny Clark giving a Side Saddle demonstration. Our Pony Club members loved seeing her ride and learning all about the art of riding side saddle and then trying it for themselves.Penny is pictured riding our BFG Ryan, and looked extremely elegant and effortless showing our members how to ride and putting Ryan through his paces, think he enjoyed himself too! 
Thank you to Penny, Jan, Abby and Alison for a wonderful afternoon!
