Pony Club - Throstle Nest at Wilsden EC 

Our Pony Club Centre is called Throstle Nest at Wilsden EC. Below is a brief message about Pony Club and what we can offer here at Wilsden EC. 

The Pony Club is represented in no less than 27 countries with a worldwide membership exceeding 110,000 making it the largest association of young riders in the world


The objectives of The Pony Club are:

- To encourage young people to ride and to learn to enjoy all kinds of sport connected with horses and riding.

- To give instruction in riding and horsemanship and to educate members to look after and to take care of their animal. 
- To promote the highest ideals of sportsmanship, citizenship and loyalty to create strength of character and self-discipline.


Membership is open to any young person under the age of 25. 

In 1998 the Centre Membership scheme was launched for those without their own pony who ride at riding schools, to become members and take part in all that The Pony Club has to offer. There are currently around 480 Pony Club centres spread across the UK. Activities at the centre are run by the proprietor and their coaches.


New Pony Club centre membership is open to anyone under 25 years of age who does not own a pony. Members pay an annual subscription and receive instruction at a Pony Club linked centre, this subscription constitutes membership of the club and includes third party insurance. 

Since January 2016, centre plus membership is also available for young riders with their own pony who ride at a Pony Club linked centre. 

Membership is currently £41 a year.


We run Pony Club sessions several times a week these are for our members, these are 40 minute sessions, of horse care working towards improving their knowledge and towards their tests, the cost of these sessions is £10.


We also run half day and full day courses for members which includes riding too. Along with regular day tests, badge sessions and competitions. We also run summer courses which are thoroughly enjoyed by all.


Members have the option to represent our Pony Club branch in competitions against other branches locally and nationally in various disciplines.
