Pony Club – a great starting point!

Pony Club – a great start

Imagine performing as a young rider in front of a large crowd in an arena. The competitors in the Pony Club horse & hound show jumping challenge will do just that.

Introduced to the annual Westcountry Equine Fair nine years ago, it now has a dedicated following from both pony clubs and audiences alike.

The Westcountry Equine Fair takes place at Westpoint in Exeter on Saturday 2nd & Sunday 3rd December. The event, now in its twenty first year is pleased to announce the four pony club teams taking part this year are: East Devon Hunt Pony Club; Lamerton; Polden Hills and Poole & District

The clubs will compete against each other in this fast-paced and thrilling competition. Riders will jump a course followed by runners and their dogs.

The pony club has a long tradition of being the starting point for a large majority of equestrian team members and medal winners including this year’s stars Grant Bazin and Alexander Bragg. Not only does the pony club offer nine exciting disciplines including Eventing, Dressage, Polocrosse and Tetrathlon but also provides instruction in horse care and riding for people up to 25 years.

No Pony? No problem! You can join in the fun at one of 500 pony club centres across the UK. So if the Pony Club Challenge at the Westcountry Equine Fair inspires you, then look up your local pony club for more information.

In addition to the unrivalled entertainment, the show also features a dedicated shopping villagefor the horse, for the rider and for Christmas’, with over 200 companies offering helpful advice and great show offers on 1000’s of products for horse and rider including many big name brands including Joules, Ariat, Toggi and Thorowgood. Also look out for the BETA Equestrian Knowledge Zone in hall 2

Don’t forget you don’t need to carry those heavy shopping bags around with the shop and drop facility in the foyer - all donations to Devon Air Ambulance.


This is certainly the total equestrian experience for the dedicated rider!
