The Pony Club Hunting Exchange - UK
Each year four Pony Club members from the UK, Ireland and USA are invited in rotation to a hunting exchange in each country - 2013 saw the UK’s turn.
Pony Club Members aged 16-25, with their full Pony Club B Test or higher, were invited to apply for selection and having received a number of high quality CV’s for UK Pony Club Members the selection was difficult. However after great consideration the four luckily Members were chosen. (See list below)

The 2013 Pony Club Hunting Exchange took place from January 31st to February 10th, with 12 Pony Club Members from all over the UK, Ireland and the USA enjoying a week and a half of hunting and horse-related visits; the first week was spent around Buckinghamshire and the remainder around Herefordshire.
Over the period, the four Members from each country had around five days’ excellent foxhunting with a variety of hunts including, a day beagling and two days visiting the Kimblewick Hunt kennels, Cheltenham racecourse, Tweenhills Stud and Woodway Farm racing yard, as well as a variety of evening entertainment including the Kimblewick Hunt pantomime and several supper parties.
