WHAT IS PONY CLUB?
The mission of the United States Pony Clubs is to provide a program for youth that teaches riding, mounted sports, and the care of horses and ponies, thereby developing responsibility, moral judgment, leadership and self-confidence.
Pony Club is one of the leading junior equestrian organizations (through age 21) in the world, represented throughout 30 countries! The United States has over 600 individual Clubs spread throughout 48 states and the Virgin Islands, with more than 12,000 members.
It is not necessary for a child to own a horse or pony, but they must have access to one when required. Programs are offered in dressage, eventing, show jumping, mounted games, tetrathlon, quiz, vaulting, foxhunting, and polocrosse.
Pony Club’s inclusion of “horse management” in all of its programs distinguishes it from virtually every other equestrian organization. Members are judged on their care of their mounts and their knowledge of horse management in all competitions. Significant resources are committed to teaching and training our members in all of these areas. Members go through testing and receive ratings based on Pony Club Standards judging both their riding ability and their horse management knowledge and skills. Many US Equestrian Olympians are Pony Club graduates, and upper rated Pony Clubbers are recognized throughout the equestrian world for their knowledge, skills and abilities.
