Pony Club, through its activities, is a worldwide youth
organisation for those interested in horses, ponies and riding and is
the largest association of riders in the world.

Pony Club is a voluntary youth organisation which exists to promote the physical, mental and spiritual development of young people, encouraging in them an awareness of responsibility, sportsmanship and citizenship.

The Pony Club differs from other youth movements because the horse is used as the main centre of interest around which to cultivate strength of character and self-discipline.The OBJECTIVE of the Pony Club is to encourage young people to learn to enjoy all kinds of sport connected with horses and riding and to provide instruction in riding and to instil in members the proper care of their animals. In our dealings with the riders, in order of importance place:

  • The SAFETY of the riders
  • The COMFORT of the horse/pony
  • The ENJOYMENT of the rider and the TRAINING of their character
  • The PROGRESS of the rider
