Scunthorpe and District Branch of the Pony Club
Mrs Lucille Robinson
The Scunthorpe Branch of The Pony Club was formed in 1968.
We hold 3 main events each year, a Spring Hunter Trial, Summer One Day Event and our Autumn Hunter Trial. All of which are held at Normanby Park near Scunthorpe by Kind permission of Sir Reginald Sheffield. Bart. In 2015 we added an indoor Team Showjumping, held at Hill House EC and in 2016 we have now added a spring show, held at Winterton Showgroound to our repertoire of events, we also have plans to add more in 2017. As a club we send teams or individuals as representatives to competitions throughout the year, for a small Branch we do incredibly well.
During the summer holidays we hold our annual residential camp, which is usually held at Askham Bryan College, using their brilliant facilities for both horses and the children. Our Senior members attend for a full 5 days (shorter periods are catered to for members that may have commitments elsewhere that week) and our Junior members join us for the last few days of the week. During the week all members will have intense training, both ridden and stable management, towards their grade testing matched to their ability and beyond, the tests will be held later in the week, with the coloured felts being awarded at The end of the week. They will also have demonstrations and games aside from the day time tasks. A brilliant week for all where memories and friends are made for life.
We hold rallies throughout the year at our Normanby Park venue, and also Epworth, Bagmoor Equestrian Centre and trips to Hoods Cross Country Schooling Facilities at Lincoln. Rallies are held in a few formats; set disciplines such as solely Dressage, Showjumping, Cross Country or one of our fun rallies which is games orientated. We also hold day long rallies where there will be a mix of Showjumping in the morning and dressage in the afternoon (or vice versa) or Dressage and Showjumping in the morning and Cross Country in the afternoon. All groups are a mix of similar abilities so that the Members can progress together.
All of our Rallies and competitions are listed on our Branch Website, in our Calendar section http://branches.pcuk.org/scunthorpe/calendar/ enter any date segments in to the required fields and you will be able to see everything that is coming soon.
