Our Pony Club….

Many young people want to spend time at the stables, not only riding, but learning to look after the horses and ponies. We have some well established and very popular activities which enable them to do this in a supervised environment.

BHS Pony Stars


Adventure, fun and friendship starts with ponies

Bentley Riding School are proud to be an official BHS Pony Stars Junior Challenge Awards Approved Centre. 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 program, each child will receive their very own My Challenge Book to log their achievements. As they progress through the various challenges there will be stickers, badges, and rosettes up for grabs too to keep them engaged and motivated.

With four key groups, Pony Stars enables long-term progression with a range of activities that will develop knowledge, skills, and self-confidence. In each group your child will work through sets of challenges that make up topics within set themes.
