Welcome to The Garth Hunt Branch of The Pony Club.
CAMP 2016 UPDATE: What a fabulous week we all had at Wellington for the Garth Hunt annual camp. Everyone had a very good time and took full advantage of the excellent tuition that was given over the week, thanks to Mandy, Dani and Sophie. It was good to see so many parents and friends at the BBQ held on the Thursday evening, a chance to relax and hear all about what has been happening at camp and for those still with some energy there was a rounders match. We are trying to secure a date for next years camp and as soon as we have we will let you know as I know a lot of you are already asking so you can book holiday around the camp date so not to miss it.

The Garth Hunt is one of the longest running Pony Clubs in the UK, starting way back in 1930 and are based in Berkshire forming part of Area 13 of the Pony Club. Our activities take place around the areas such as Slough, Windsor, Ascot, Maidenhead, Winkfield, Binfield and Reading.
We strive to provide the best possible training for our members, from complete beginners to advanced riders, in a friendly environment. We believe that regular, effective rallies and training will produce safe, happy and competitive riders, across all disciplines and include all abilities. This is our belief and one that has remained since the Pony Club began in 1929.
Garth Hunt is here for you, its members and our members are of all ages and capabilities. We encourage the highest standards of horse and pony care, horsemanship and riding, whilst also having fun!
Since the start of the year we have held a huge amount of rallies, which have resulted in many members attending and gaining expert tuition at subsidised rates. I would encourage you to take a look at our calendar. We have a brilliant range of instructors who also continue to develop their training so always being able to offer our members the very best.
Many of our members have represented the Garth Hunt at many high profile events including Royal Windsor, Blenheim, Hickstead, Pony Club Championships, Dengie, POYS, HOYS, Blue Chips and SCOPE.
Many, but not all, of our members are active competitors in all the disciplines, at all levels, and we have a number of teams out competing most weekends throughout the season. Some of our past members have gone on to represent their country, and we welcome them back to inspire our current members.
If you are thinking of joining us please feel free to contact me and perhaps visit us as a guest member so you can try us out.
