pony club is a wonderful thing if you just go in it to take the things to benefit you. DO NOT GET INTO ALL THE DRAMA! ( at least try not too!) I loved it when I was younger but then as my peers and I grew up a little , the moms got so competitive turning my friends competitive and so so so much drama came from that, that I don't even talk to the people I used to LOVE riding with. So just go in to make some friends but try not to take in all the drama/ competitiveness that generally comes in...just have fun! Eventing is definatley a blast once you get into it!
