Riding can be a very dangerous sport & parents should attend lessons and observe their child's progress, even if parents are not experienced with horses or have no real interest in the sport themselves when their child is mounted the responsibility and duty of care is theirs.
The beginner rider should never be left unsupervised.
For the child's safety it is very important that horse and rider are 'well matched' and that all riding gear is well fitted and in good condition.
To be able to attend Summer Camp a rider must have attended 2 ridden rallies beforehand.
On admission to the Club you will receive a Pony Club Card which is a record of you and your horse's attendance at Rallies and your grading for competitions You will also need to fill in a medical and other information form.
