Pony Club is a youth movement which encourages young people to ride and learn to enjoy all approved kinds of sport connected with horses, riding and the correct care of horses. Instructors and helpers are primarily youth leaders working with young people with a common interest “horses”.
The focus of “Pony Club” and of great significance is
The safety of the member
The comfort of the horse
The enjoyment of the rider
The progress of the rider
At BMPC we have two streams of membership, riders with horses (general members) and a small group of young riders without horses.
The Club is run by a committee of volunteers who are elected each year at the AGM in March.
