What is Pony Club?
Pony Club is educational!
We teach horse care and
horsemanship to young people ages 5 through 25. Members advance through a
certification system as they demonstrate proficiency as an equestrian and in
horse management. There are opportunities
to improve your riding ability and knowledge with mounted lessons and unmounted
meetings. During unmounted meetings (no
horse needed) members learn about feeding, shoeing, veterinary care, and other
areas of horse management. Under adult supervision, the more experienced Pony
Club members instruct and assist younger members.
Pony Club is fun!
Pony Club is about having fun, making friends, becoming a leader, setting goals, and learning self-confidence and responsibility. Pony Club members get together for fun member events, certification opportunities and rallies with other Pony Clubs. Pony Club believes that fair and friendly competition develops teamwork skills and sportsmanship.
Pony Club is variety!
Pony Club members can choose to pursue any number of disciplines, including dressage, eventing, show jumping, mounted games, tetrathlon, quiz, vaulting, foxhunting, and polocrosse. While most of our members have their own horse, it isn't necessary to have one to join. Members should have access to one when required.
