Snowball Farm Pony Club

Snowball Farm Equestrian Centre has been a Pony Club Centre since 2014.  Centre Membership allows children who ride in our riding school but do not have a pony of their own to participate in all that The Pony Club has to offer.  Snowball Farm provides training and activities based around The Pony Club Progressive Tests, Achievement Badges and Efficiency Tests, as well as a range  of fun and entertaining activities designed to help Centre members understand and care for ponies and horses.

  • Riding – Centre members practise for their Pony Club Progressive Test Awards, as well as take part in a range of other activities including Ridden Games, Drill/Musical Rides and Skill at Arms.  Children must be able to ride at walk and trot unaided before taking part in the riding sessions.
  • Stable Management. Lectures (short!) and practical sessions are aimed at achieving a range of Pony Club badges and teach children how to care for ponies and handle them safely and efficiently.

Volunteering – Volunteers are the backbone of The Pony Club.  If you would like to get involved as a volunteer at Snowball Farm Pony Club rallies, visits and events please let us know.  Volunteering can be personally rewarding.  You can learn new skills, see the different disciplines in action and make new friends.
