Centre Membership / Becoming a Pony Club Linked Centre


Interested in setting up a Pony Club at your riding school?

The Pony Club tests and achievement badges provide excellent structure for lessons and coaching within a riding school. The badges are fun awards for Members covering all aspects of stable management and a selection of non equine subjects too. The Pony Club efficiency and progressive tests form a training ‘ladder’ for young riders to work through. Our higher level tests are well respected within the equestrian industry and our tests are easily mapped to the BHS Stages and coaching qualifications. For more information on the BHS and Pony Club tests, please click here

For those riding schools interested in linking their business with The Pony Club, there are a number of pre-requisites that need to be considered:

-  Riding School License
-  Public Liability Insurance
-  Regular enhanced DBS (or Access NI or PVG) checks for members of staff that will be in a regulated activity (see Safeguarding)
-  Attendance at a Safeguarding and Protecting Children Workshop within the last three years
-  Risk Assessments

It is not essential to be BHS or ABRS approved as every riding school expressing interest in the scheme is initially visited and assessed individually by one of our Centre Coordinators. When they attend your initial visit (and at subsequent revisits), the information listed above should be available for the Coordinator to view and record for any new members of staff.
