Parents Information / Hunting Policy

The Pony Club and its Branches are entirely separate organisations to any hunts. Historically Branches were founded by members of local Hunts for the benefit of their farmers’ and subscribers’ children.

The Pony Club recognises that traditional hunting has changed following the inception of the Hunting Act 2004 on 18th February 2005. As long as hunts are acting within the law, The Pony Club continues to encourage those Members who wish to take part and experience riding across country to do so.

Trail-hunting, hound exercise and exempt hunting are recognised activities that hunts participate in to comply with the current legislation.

The Masters of Foxhounds Association (MFHA) and Association of Masters of Harriers and Beagles (AMHB) recommend that those who follow hounds should be a member of the Countryside Alliance.
