Pony Club at Gleneagles
Pony Club is a body that was founded in 1929 for children who own their own ponies, and Centre Pony Club is an initiative 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 to 18 years old can enjoy 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
Pony Club runs in 8-week blocks with short breaks for some school holidays. There are groups for all ages and abilities.
14 & 15 January
21 & 22 January
28 & 29 January
4 & 5 February
25 & 26 February
4 & 5 March
11 & 12 March
18 & 19 March

How to join
Children need to be Junior members of the Equestrian School – this costs £225 per annum and comes with additional benefits.
Children must also join the Pony Club which will entitle them to badges, newsletters, special prices and branded clothing. Pony Club Centre membership is £24.
An 8-week block of Pony Club is £148 for 13yrs and under and £164 for 14yrs and over – this works out at £18.50/£20.50 for 90 minutes (excluding membership) which is a fantastic price!
We suggest children come for an initial assessment lesson so we can advise them which group they would fit into best.
