Welcome to the Cotswold Hunt Pony Club
The Cotswold Hunt branch of the Pony Club helps educate children in caring for and riding all types of horses and ponies, from the tiniest trotting Shetland to a polished and glossy eventer, everyone is welcome. Our branch was formed in 1930, which makes it one of the oldest Pony Clubs in the country. We are part of Area 9 of the Pony Club and we are one of the larger clubs with about 160 members. Many of our members are keen participants in teams, competing in Dressage, Show Jumping, Eventing, Tetrathlon and Polo as well as Horse and Pony Care and we regularly send competitors to national level championships in these disciplines. Our aim is to have lots for fun along the way, so whilst we have a spread of talent in our members, you don’t have to want to compete to enjoy the activities that are on offer. We host several competitions each year and lots of fun activities for all ages and also for those who don’t want to compete. We hold camps for Minis (3-6 years roughly), Juniors (6-12 roughly) and Seniors (12 and upwards) each year in the Summer Holidays and many social events as well. If you are interested in joining our branch take a look at our Membership page in the Information section for more.

In view of the latest government advice and in line with the Pony Club we have taken the difficult but we believe necessary decision to cancel all CHPC activities for the foreseeable future.
