How do we become a Linked Riding Centre?

To get started, your riding centre will need to have the following in place:

  • Current Riding School licence
  • Current Public Liability insurance
  • Risk Assessments and Fire Risk Assessments for your Centre

All of your unsupervised Pony Club Coaches must have:

  • An Enhanced DBS check within the last three years
  • A Safeguarding course within the last three years
  • Current First Aid qualification
  • Attendance at a Pony Club CPD course at least once every two years (this can be worked on in your first year of becoming a Centre)

One of our Centre Coordinators will visit you initially to help get everything set up. Once this is completed and the relevant fees are sorted, you'll be ready to launch!
