Pony Club at Gleneagles

Possibly the most fun your kids will ever have...

Pony Club is a body founded in 1929 for children with their own ponies, and Centre Pony Club is an innitiative introduced in 1998 to give children without their own pony the opportunity to take part.
Gleneagles Equestrian School runs 90 minute Centre Pony Club lessons every week.  Children of all ages, from 6 – 18yrs, have a 45 minute riding lesson followed by a 45 minute stable management session.  They will learn how to:

  • groom and tack up their ponies
  • feed and look after them
  • ride!

and can achieve lots of badges and certificates as they progress.

Pony Club runs in 8 week blocks with short breaks for some school holidays.  There are groups for all ages and abilities, and each group has a programme they work through during the block.  This ensures real learning and improvement occurs.
