Horse scout Blogger spotted that Hastoe Hill Stables has its own Pony Club Club especially to help their Kids count up their badges at their BHS Approved Equestrian Centre. Cool.
At Hastoe Hill Stables we run a pony Club centre for all our younger clients. The Pony Club scheme allows children to learn important topics and achieve badges and progressive tests. Our pony club is split into three groups:
FALABELLA – For children under the age of 10 years, who have never done pony club before. In the falabella sessions we focus on the basic of horse care, working towards mini achievement badges in grooming and pony behavior.
MINI – For children under the age of 10 years, who ride in our lead rein and beginner group lessons. In Mini sessions we focus on being comfortable around the ponies and knowing how to look after, feed, groom and care for the ponies. We also work towards mini achievement badges and the bronze progressive award.
JUNIOR – For children over the age of 10 years, who ride in our novice and intermediate group lessons. In Junior sessions we focus on the big achievement badges, like Mucking Out, Grooming and Handling and Saddlery. We also work towards both the bronze and silver progessive awards.
SENIOR – For teenagers, who ride in our novice and intermediate group lessons. In the senior sessions we focus on some of the more advance badges such as Equine first aid and native british breeds.
We really try to make the sessions as fun as possible, we also offer special pony club activities throughout the summer holidays, such as jumping clinics, pony camps and extra badge sessions.
