- About Us -

- Welcome -

Welcome to our wonderful club - Laois Hunt Pony Club.  We have about approx. 80 members and we base our "home ground" at Stradbally Hall Estate. We are eternally greatful to the Cosby family for their ongoing support and allowing our members access to this fairytale setting where memories and lifelong friendships are made.


We are affiliated to the Irish Pony Club and our main ambition is to provide an equine education to our members that will help our members to handle and care for their animals using best practice. Our members takes equine tests from the ages of 5 to 21, tests which may ultimately lead them to a equestrian teaching career. If you click on the Disciplines tab, you will get a taster of the options available to you at our club.


We often get asked "Do I need my own Pony?" The answer to this is "Yes" but you don't have to be the owner - if you can borrow a pony from friends or family, that's fine too. However all animals must be Aged 5+.  

We are open to and always welcome new members, no matter what your age or ability is. We have something to offer all levels and we can guarantee a smile, cup of tea and piece of cake for all of the overworked grooms (aka Mammies & Daddies!)

Call any of the Committee today if you would like to have a chat about how we  can help you.
