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.

CHPC Socks & Hats

Limited Edition CHPC socks and Bobble Hats!

CHPC Bobble hats are a must for cold damp mornings and for this winter. Perfect to wear at events or mucking out!  They are the most comfortable bobble hats to wear – no itching and super-warm. They are stretchy too, so one size fits all.

We also have very high-quality CHPC competition socks. These technical riding socks are designed to be worn under your long boots or chaps but also look great with trainers and come in 3 sizes; Small 12-3, Med, 4-7 and Large 8-12

We are selling these as a fund-raiser for the branch, so please spread the word – brilliant birthday presents too.  Stock is limited so please don’t leave it too late.  We may order another run if they prove to be very popular, which will be pre-order only.

Please order through Katie May katiemayuk@msn.com or 07802 787671
