Pony Club at Fort Widley Equestrian Centre, Portsmouth
Pony Club at Fort Widley Equestrian Centre, Portsmouth.

The Pony Club is a nationally recognised club, similar to Cubs and Brownies, where children work towards achievement badges and awards. Our sessions are divided in to 6 ability groups with each group working towards different badges depending on their level of knowledge.

Each group attends the centre on alternate Tuesday or Wednesday with their allocated group. The evening consists of the member arriving at the centre at 5pm and leaving at 7.30pm, during which time they will participate in an hour and a half stable management and one hour of riding.

As the children achieve badges and experience they will move up through our groups.

Extra events are put on during the year, badge days, residential pony club camps, presentation evening, gymkhanas and social events.  We also invite external speakers to come in and talk to the children about a range of different subjects, such as working dogs, and farming, with trips being organised to local vet talks and the Chichester observatory. All these talks and excursion are to help the children achieve a variety of the non-horse related badges.
