Marlton Kids Club

A very active riding school set in the heart of Wicklow Town, and run by local International Dressage Rider Josephine Delahoyde.

With more than 15 ponies in the school, we caterĀ for all ages, we don’t believe in a minimum age, just an interest or passion for being around ponies.

We have pupils competing regularly in Dressage, Show Jumping and Eventing, along with Hunter Trials.

Our current lesson timetable sees lessons Monday to Friday afternoons after school. Boosted with an indoor stable barn and indoor riding arena, we are able to maintain lessons throughout all weathers. Our lessons are structured on an ability basis. We offer lead rein lessons as well as group lessons for all abilities. We also offer Dressage lessons and Show Jumping lessons with a view of preparing the children for competitions.

We are very proud to have produced such a talented bunch of riders who have competed at the Dressage Ireland National Championships, picking up placings in the Junior Trailblazer classes, both under and over 12’s section, along with one of our graduates from the kids club, who is now an assistant Instructor of ours being crowned the National Novice Dressage Champion for 2019 and the UK Area Festival Final Champion.

On the jumping side, we are super proud to have fielded Primary Interschools Teams for the last 4 seasons. We have also fielded a number of Individual Secondary School riders, who have also gone on to compete on their school teams with great success.

We have also had a number of great successes at local Hunter Trials and attending One Day Events with our more advanced pupils. We are very proud of our ponies, and they are treated with the highest regard and as such respond to preform in all disciplines when required, both at home and at travelling shows.


We offer pony loans, both short and long term, where your child can have all the pro’s of owning their own pony and caring for it, without you having the expense of all the costs that go with owning a pony. This is very popular and many of our more advanced riders avail of this long term.
