Wellington Riding is a Pony Club centre which enables children without their own ponies to join the Pony Club and enjoy rallies and competitions on our horses and ponies.
Being a member means you can improve your knowledge by working towards certificates awarded by the Pony Club, of which there are eight graded standards starting with the ‘D’ Test and culminating with the highly regarded ‘A’ Test, taken when a Member is around 19 or 20 years old. A Road Safety Test is part of the C Test Certificate
