Squirrells Riding School Becomes 100th Young Equestrians Centre

Squirrells riding school, in Kent, today celebrated becoming the 100th equestrian centre to join the hugely successful national Young Equestrians initiative; launched by The Pony Club in partnership with the British Equestrian Federation.

International event rider Adam Trew joined the party at Squirrells Riding School to kick start the celebrations, hosting a special clinic for the riding school’s enthusiastic young members followed by an opportunity for questions about the life of a professional event rider.

Commenting on the event, Squirrells Riding School proprietor, Mrs Hayley Squirrell, said: “We are delighted to be the 100th Young Equestrians Club!

We are keen to use our facilities for this new Club, to offer young people (aged 13-18) from our local community a safe and relaxed environment where they can make new friends, ride regularly and participate in a range of other sports – it’s not just about riding and learning about horses! The Young Equestrians membership is growing, but we still have places for young people interested in joining; I can guarantee they will never be bored!”


Eventer Adam Trew said: “In an age where social media and computer based games seem to dominate young people’s leisure time it is wonderful to see these young people genuinely enjoying spending time outside in a social environment, interacting with the horses – and, of course, showcasing their terrific riding skills.”

The Young Equestrians at Squirrells Riding School meet every fortnight on a Friday evening and use their sessions to not only build on their equestrian knowledge, but also to gain life skills with their friends and like-minded individuals.

There are currently 100 Young Equestrian Clubs across the UK, with four in Kent alone:

Braeside Equestrian Centre

Coldblow Equestrian Centre

Horseshoes Riding School

Squirrells Riding Centre

Young Equestrians clubs are set up within riding schools accredited to a British Equestrian Federation Member Body, such as The Pony Club, or within Pony Club Branches.
