The Pony Club’s UKCC Level 3 course continues at Solihull Riding Club, West Midlands on the 10th and 11th March. Coaching practice is an essential part of the considerable amount of work required to achieve this qualification and so good riders to work with are also very important! The coaches on the course are already experienced and qualified but are looking to further their skills.
Demo riders working at PC Intermediate - Open level (jumping at 1.05 to 1.10 metres or above) are invited to come along and ride for one or two 45-minute sessions. They will be coached in groups and there is no charge to them. They can bring more than one horse if they wish.
If you know anyone locally who may be interested in some additional training free of charge, for any of the dates above, please ask them to complete the form below and send it to Jenny Yates (email@example.com)

One of the objectives of The Pony Club is to give instruction in riding and horsemastership and to educate Members to look after and to take proper care of horses and ponies. Pony Club instructors and coaches deliver training and support Members to help them develop their riding and horse and pony care skills.
Instructors and coaches must base their teaching on The Pony Club Manual of Horsemanship and Instructor’s Handbook in order to avoid conflicting methods. For more information, click on the Pony Club Instructors tab below.
From January 2014, Pony Club Coaches and Instructors will be split into four categories according to their use and role within The Pony Club. Each category will have specific requirements as laid out below:
The requirements for each category of Pony Club Coaches / Instructors are detailed below:
Accredited coaches for another BEF Member Body (i.e. are currently listed as a coach by the Member Body and have attended CPD as required by that Body) may be used in The Pony Club but only for the discipline that they are accredited in, if the Member Body is specific to a particular sport.
* Where Supervised / Volunteer Coaches are coaching regularly (i.e. four or more times within any 30 day period) a DBS (or PVG or Access NI) check and attendance at a Safeguarding & Protecting Children workshop is required.
Pony Club CPD Courses are listed on the Area Instructor Courses page.
