Pony Club can be a really great resource and experience.
There are a few things I would be wary of though.
The quality of instruction can vary a lot, and while usually everyone means well don't take everything as truth - questions (to yourself) what they're teaching you. Do what you know is best.
It can also get very - political? Gossiping? Anyway be nice to everyone, don't talk behind peoples back even if you think you trust your conversation partner. And don't get locked into the cliques, spend time with everyone.
