The Institute of the Horse started a Sub Branch scheme in different parts of the country to encourage riding.
In addition to running events for adults, several of them started to organise paperchases and gymkhanas for children. This was a forerunner of The Pony Club.
The earliest recorded event was a gymkhana organised by the Oxted (Surrey) Sub-Branch in 1928. At a later rally, Harry Faudel-Phillips, who was a Member of the Council of the Institute of the Horse, was invited to give a lecture and demonstration.
