The pinnacle of Pony Club is to be selected for Area. This is a competition where our club competes against all of Area 9 Pony Clubs (of which we form part). If successful you then get to compete at The Pony Club National Championships.
Final teams and Individuals will be will be decided based on competition results, team manager and independent instructor feedback and progress in training.
General Information on Teams
Team members are expected to be active Pony Club members all year. Potential team members should do a minimum of 3 rallies per year, one of which must be specific to the relevant discipline and in the current year, on the relevant horse or pony. eg. to be considered for both SJ and Eventing teams you should do a SJ rally and an Eventing rally.
The combination should also be competing at the relevant level.
All of our team managers have an idea of who wants to do Area or those that have expressed interest but it is easy to inadvertently miss someone off the list. We have an inclusive policy so if you think your child might want to be involved in any of these teams please get in touch. A selection panel for each sport will ensure that each child fulfils the criteria and is capable of competing at that level, before selecting teams.
All final squad members will be expected to attend team training and should assume they will be competing at the Area competition and potentially qualifying for the relevant Championships.
Area 9 consists of Branches and Centres across Gloucestershire, Worcestershire, Herefordshire, Wiltshire and Oxfordshire.
