"U.S. Pony Clubs started in 1954 to teach the English style of riding and the proper care of horses. It is an offshoot of the British Pony Club, which was created in 1929 as a junior branch of the Institute of the Horse. Since then, Pony Club has expanded to many countries around the world. The main purpose is to promote sportsmanship, stewardship and leadership through horsemanship.
In the last decade, U.S. Pony Clubs has made an effort to strengthen its program to meet the needs of today's horse involved youth. This has included, raising the age of graduation from 21 to 25, offering Pony Club through an established riding lesson business, expanding certifications to include the disciplines of Dressage and Show Jumping, bringing in Western disciplines, and including land conservation in the Standards of Proficiency. Please join us as we continue our mission of developing character, leadership, confidence and a sense of community in our youth, thereby developing strong leaders for tomorrow.
