Age: From 5 years
Gorswen Riding School is affiliated to the pony club UK. So what does this mean for your child? The pony club has a training system for children and young adults up to the age of 23. The test certificates start with the E test for the younger children working up to the dizzy heights of A test for the serious older student. There are many, many badges for young people to complete too.
At Gorswen, we tend to stay with the mainstream certificates, flatwork, jumping and horse knowledge and care but there are many more avenues we could explore e.g. Polocrosse, racing and tetrathlon.
We hold pony club days during half term and school holidays usually on a Wednesday from 10am-4pm. The pony club insists that all staff who teach the members are registered with them and hold 1st aid and child protection. We also need to be DBS checked.
In short, pony club is another tool we have to be more able to try and reach out to each child as an individual and help her/him to achieve self confidence and self worth.
