Branch Membership

Members at a Rally

What is Branch Membership?

Branch Members subscribe to their local Branch annually. Each Branch covers a small region and rallies and activities are run at a variety of locations within that region.

Who can join?

Pony Club Branch Membership is open to anyone up to the age of 25. Members should have access to a horse or pony, by ownership or loan, and have the means to transport the horse or pony to and from rallies and events. Find out more about joining The Pony Club.

What are the benefits?


The annual subscription includes Personal Liability Insurance (Third Party). Find out more about our Insurance

Learning & Tests

Members are encouraged to take an interest in their work and improve their knowledge by working towards their Pony Club Standards of Efficiency Tests, of which there are eight beginning with the 'E' Test and culminating with the prestigious 'A' Test. There is also the opportunity to work towards Road Safety, Achievement Badges, Progressive Tests and the Coaching Certificate. Pony Club Tests provide excellent grounding for those wanting to take up a career in equestrianism.


Inter Branch events are held to encourage team work and promote pride in the Branch. There is also the opportunity to qualify for National Pony Club competitions such as the Winter League, Quiz Final and The Pony Club Championships in August.


Each Branch organises a full programme of working rallies and other fixtures which may take place during school holidays. These include competitions, an annual camp, visits and social events.

The overriding aim is to make membership informative and fun!
