The Northampton Branch was established in 1974 and is part of Pony Club Area 12.We are quite unique as we are one of only two Pony Clubs in our area to have our own club hut and yard. Northampton is one of the smaller branches, we currently have 91 members. The benefit of this is that most of our members and their parents know each other and enjoy the friendliness of the club. Every member is invited to all the rallies and our older members enjoy helping our younger members. We offer activities for every age group and every ability and are open to new ideas from our members. A lot of our members compete regularly at various levels and we have been proud to have our teams qualifying for the Championships in dressage, show jumping and eventing.
The Committee and Instructors are hardworking and passionate about Northampton Pony Club and our aim is for our members to have fun and to improve their riding and stable management and to become knowledgeable horse owners.We hold regular mounted and unmounted rallies all year round using the best Instructors we can. We are well known in Northampton for our shows, jumping derbys and our summer dressage evenings held at Delapre Park.
The Pony Club is the number one organisation for young people who love ponies and riding. There are more than 43,000 Pony Club Members in Great Britain, belonging to either a Branch or a Centre - there are more than 350 of each of these.
