What We Offer
As well as offering lessons we like to provide opportunities for clients to experience horses in a way as similar to owning their own as possible.  Most of our lessons have a heavily discounted stable management session attached to them and there is the opportunity to get involved in our Saturday and Sunday Club (see below), We also run a series of Combined Training (Dressage and Show Jumping) competitions throughout each year.  They are friendly and help is always on hand to show children and parents what to do.  They are suitable from Novice to Competitive level as they start with a walk/trot test and poles and go up to 100cm jumping. 

Many children come out to competitions such as the Aston-le Walls Bloxham School Eventer Challenges, one day events and local summer shows. The great news is you do not have to have your own horse or pony.  You can hire one of ours or why not consider our loan share scheme?  (See tab on the side of this page) It's a great way to start before owning your own.  

We have Lots of Holiday activities for beginner to competitive riders.  Please See Tab across Top
Regal Equestrian Pony Club
We are very pleased to be a registered Pony Club Centre. To attend this session Children (U21) must become a registered member of The Pony Club which costs approximately £25/year as a Centre member.  As well as covering you with third party liability insurance, joining the Pony Club offers you lots of opportunities to work towards badges and awards and to get involved and try to qualify for the Pony Club Championships in Cheshire in August - a great trip where we take some ponies and you stay whilst competing in show jumping, dressage or horse care.  

We run lots of exciting pony club sessions throughout the week.  These are 2 hour sessions which are made up of an hours riding lesson and an hours Pony Care in which children can work towards their PC badges.  It also gives the children time to gain their confidence with horses on the ground and to make friends.

For older children we run sessions on a Saturday afternoon working towards their C and C+ tests.  Most come and have a riding lesson, help on the yard and then join the training session.

Throughout the year we offer opportunities for others to train for their E, D and D+ tests and Riding and Road Safety awards.  we also run a series of combined training competitions (dressage and jumping) for our members.
We hope to see you

Regal Equestrian Pony Club 

Clothing orders - Please note:  

All children attending Pony Club sessions must have a Polo shirt and sweatshirt or hoodie.

Dear Parent or carer,

As you know we work very hard to involve all of our children with pony care to improve their confidence with horses and ponies on the ground, confidence with their peers and give them the opportunity to build often life-long friendships.  The second hour of the “Pony Club” sessions are therefore heavily discounted.   The price of these increasingly popular sessions has been due to be increased for some time.  However, I am very keen to get all children attending the Pony Club sessions in Regal Equestrian Polo Shirts and either sweatshirts or hoodies so that they all feel like they “belong” to our Pony Club.  I am therefore going to delay a price increase until the spring, but insist that all children/teenagers attending our Pony Club sessions attend in “uniform” and have a polo shirt AND sweatshirt or hoody by January 1st 2015.

Can I suggest that you buy sweatshirts or hoodies on the large side so that they can get plenty of layers below and it is also a while before you have to re-stitch all of their badges onto the next one!!!

I will be placing an order during the week of the 24th November. 

A price list is attached.  Please complete the attached order form and return with payment  for your clothing before Monday 24th November. Cheques payable to Regal Equestrian Ltd.

Many thanks

Fran Bird
