The Burton Hunt Branch of the Pony Club was established in 1947.
The branch covers the area immediately surrounding and to the north of the city of Lincoln, bounded to the west by the settlements of Saxilby, Torksey, Gate Burton, Knaith, Lea, Gainsborough, Morton.
At this point the boundary moves to the east: Blyton Grayingham, Waddingham, Great Sturton, Snitterby, Bishopbridge. Market Rasen, then moving south to Linwood, Ranby, Baumber, Stainfield and Bardney.
The Fossdyke Navigation marks the southern boundary to the west of Lincoln and River Witham to the east.
Throughout the year the branch holds a programme of both mounted and dismounted rallies where qualified instructors train members from lead rein to advanced in riding and horse and pony care, with the opportunity to progress through Pony Club tests.
Regular training sessions are held for dressage, show jumping, mounted games, mini training and event training, horse care and Quiz training. These are for all ages and abilities.
The branch enters teams for most disciplines, in qualifying events for the Pony Club National Championships.
The highlight of the year for many members is the annual camp, which is held during the summer holidays.
Each year the branch organises competitions which are open to members and non members, these include hunter trials, one day events, indoor cross country and mounted games competitions.
We value all of our members equally. We want to help members to grow as individuals and we celebrate each member’s achievements. We are a team and we aim to be accessible, inclusive and open.
Its been a busy year so far! We had lots of regular training and rallies, great fun at Pony Club Camp plus team and individual success at Area 6 competitions with members heading off to the National & Regional Pony Club Championships in mounted games and dressage! Take a look at our news page to see what we have been up to.
We are planning some fun summer activities before we resume regular training in the Autumn. Grassroots for beginners and novice riders continues through the Summer
