The Exmoor Pony Trekking Section is a unique student run non-profit organisation and university society. Any level of rider can join to experience this cheeky native breed, discover the beautiful countryside just outside the city and make many new friends at our socials and on treks.

Any level of rider can become a member of the society at the cost of only £15. Membership allows you to attend society meetings and socials, receive our newsletter and entitles you to a special discount on the price of our weekend treks.

If you are a more experienced rider, you can train to become a trek leader for just £125 on our Trek Leader Course. This covers the cost of the course, all your riding for a year and pony and human first aid qualifications! Becoming a trek leader gives you the freedom to ride our ponies at any time as well as becoming more involved with running the section and looking after the ponies as a team, and help take our trekkers once you are qualified, spreading the joy of exmoor ponies. 

For more information, please don't hesitate to get in touch with us. Sign up for discounted Freshers’ week treks and the TLC course at the Societies Fair in Freshers’ Week. The ponies look forward to seeing you in September!
