Members can use these facilities 7 days a week (the grounds are closed on rally days except for members formally attending that rally day).

Members can also book the dressage arena or showjumps if you are having a lesson 


We  leave 8 to 10 show jumps (verticals, grids and oxers) out between rally days (please make sure all poles are left off the ground so they do not rot) which can be used by Avondale pony club members and Grounds members during the week!

Grounds Members

Non pony club members can become Grounds Members, which gives them full access to all of Avondale's fantastic facilities on all non rally or competition days. See Grounds Members for more details.
