THE Young pony club had 22 riding members at their first rally of the year recently ranging from two to 18 years of age swelling the club's numbers to 45 with still more set to join.

The club is holding a dressage day at Bendick Murrel in March and will be holding a gymkhana in April.

Club spokeswoman Genevieve Apps said people looking to join should have their own horse.

“But if someone needs a horse until they are able to get their own the club will do our best to help them out,” she said.

“We encourage people to come down to the club and watch and listen to what's happening.

“We hold rallies on the first and third Sunday of the month, we have an undercover arena so we can ride in all weather conditions we also hire the arena out to other riders, clubs and disciplines.”

Mrs Apps the club has a new rule regarding helmets.

“Inside the helmet is a date of manufacture, for your helmet to be legal for pony club it needs to be within 5 years of this date,” she said.
