The Pony Club at Burley-Villa

Burley-Villa is a British Pony Club Centre. This means we offer all the activities, badges, rallies, camps and riding tests which are usually available to children who own their own ponies, but our members can take them on our riding school horses and ponies.

We start with an assessment lesson, unless you are a regular rider with us already. This is for 30 minutes and will cost £44. We assess your child’s riding ability so we can make sure we find the right group with others of similar ability. You will be able to join your child up  as a Centre Member.  We can help you do this online. Then if you can let us know your child’s size for their official  sweatshirt, we will order this on your behalf.

We have a number of different Pony Club groups, each group is half Riding and half Pony Care. In the Pony Care we cover all aspects of looking after a pony such as grooming, tacking up etc as well as helping you with passing the nationally recognized Pony Club Awards  and Tests. Quite often we set simple homework like learning colours of ponies and parts of the saddle, all of which feature in the various tests.
