Founded in 1986 for the promotion of the New Forest Pony as an all-round performance pony, the New Forest Pony Enthusiasts Riding Club (NFPEC) is affiliated to British Riding Clubs, area 17. Membership is open to anyone interested in promoting the New Forest Pony.
We are based in the New Forest and are affiliated to British Riding Clubs, part of area 17 which covers Hampshire, Dorset & the Isle of Wight. We have around 150 members, both adult and juniors, who participate in a wide range of events both within the New Forest and further afield and we actively seek to publicise the achievements of our members and their ponies to give the breed a higher profile in public awareness.
The riding club is open to all ages, with riding and non-riding members welcome. We also host a variety of events and activities, including an annual open show, dressage, jumping, clinics & training, pleasure rides and also a variety of non-mounted social events. As well as this we also participate in BRC area competitions, including showjumping, dressage & arena eventing and have seen some excellent results both as a team and from individual members.
Ponies that represent the club in area events must be registered in the main section of the New Forest Pony Breeding & Cattle Society Stud Book.
