Pony Club at L.E.S

Lodge Equine Stables is one of Northern Ireland's largest Pony Club Centres and has successfully seen
candidates reach up to B Test Standard. 

Pony Club Centre Membership is designed for children who do not own their own pony but would like to
become involved in Pony Club activities and gives children the opportunity to learn more about riding and
horse/pony care through a range of fun activities and events held at L.E.S. for Pony Club Centre Members.
Our ponies are available to hire for all Pony Club Centre events.


Becoming a Pony Club Centre member is ideal for those wanting to own their own pony and also those who
just want to enjoy the friendship, activities, learning more about ponies, riding and looking after them.

Pony Club Centre Members are encouraged to take the Pony Club Achievement Badges, Efficiency Tests and
Progressive Awards.

Recently The Pony Club has opened membership to non horse owners, this means anyone under the age of 25 can
become a member at approved Riding School Centres. We offer 2 hours of fun, training, competitions and over 20 Badge
modules, in such subjects as equine first aid, bird watching, and, dog handling to name a few

Our Pony Clubbers also get out on lots of trips, have various talks/demos from professionals and go to small local competitions. It is open to anyone up to the age of 25, and our current pony clubbers welcome all new members.
