    The youngest members - the future of pony club




    GPC combined lead rein groups

    In these days of falling numbers, it is important that our youngest riders are engaged, having fun, so that they are interested enough to stay on in the club.

    At Gisborne PC, there are 3 lead rein groups. Here they are shown lining up for a combined games session. See the news page for the games they played and other ideas for the youngest riders.
