Children's Pony Club
Kelburn Equestrian Centre is an approved Pony Club Centre.
The Pony Club set up these branches to provide the same opportunities for children without their own ponies or who have no way of transporting their ponies to a local branch.
At Kelburn we have a programme of events from all areas of the Pony Club disciplines.
Joining the Pony Club gives children a structured fun way of learning with the opportunity to achieve worldwide recognised awards.
