Pony Club Applications

There are two routes into becoming a Pony Club Member – either by joining our waiting list or through membership of KTCF Young Farmers Club.

Pony Club Waiting List: Due to the popularity of Pony Club, applicants can expect to wait up to 2 years before being offered a place, so an early application is recommended. Children must be a minimum of 8 years old to apply. To join our Pony Club waiting list emailinfo@ktcityfarm.org.uk

KTCF Young Farmer Club: Another route to join Pony Club is by active participation in our Young Farmers Club. Children who are members of Young Farmers for over a year are offered priority places in Pony Club.
