Pony Stars


Adventure, fun and friendship starts with ponies 


We are proud to be an official BHS Pony Stars Junior Challenge Awards [Approved Centre / APC / Club]. We deliver The British Horse Society (BHS) programme which aims to help under 12s discover, develop, and nurture their love for ponies and the outdoors. With over 100 topics for children to explore, Pony Stars will ignite a passion for ponies, build knowledge and cement friendships that will last a lifetime.

As part of the programme, each child will receive their very own My Challenge Book to log their achievements which takes around 12-18 months to complete. With four key groups, Pony Stars enables long-term progression with a range of activities that will develop knowledge, skills, and self-confidence.
