Any Pony Clubbers?

Is anyone else a member of pony club? Do you like your club?

I joined this year and love it so far. We've had clinics and lessons with a lot of great instructors, and our PC grounds were donated by someone years ago. There's hundreds of acres for our cross country course there, as well as a limestone dressage arena and a sand jumping arena. We have water elements and such as well.

I've only been to one rally, but it was great for the most part. We also went to a three-day camp with our horses that was a blast.

I'm an associate member, I don't ride there but I teach on occasion.

I've actually just moved, so I am going to be trying out a new pony club. I've been to three others before and they're all very different, its interesting that clubs can have the same written policies and such, but all have such a different flavour.

My first one (my favourite of course!) was the one that I grew up with, and we were very focussed on eventing, with usually each rally day incorporating some dressage, show jumping and cross country, and then often some mounted games or sporting.

The second club was more just about riding around. The third was very into showing and sporting, with a little jumping. Pretty much whatever you'd do at a gymkhana. But they were much more into troop drill and stuff, which the first two never did!

I think Pony Club is great. Sure the quality of teaching can vary, and the it can get a bit petty, but you pay, what, $60 a year for probably 30-40 hours of instruction! You have the opportunity to learn so many new things and try things out. It's a great place especially for farm kids and such whose parents won't fork out for lessons, or people new to the horse world who need to learn about horse care.

Yep I'm the secretary and dad is president for our club. We are tiny, about 10 riding members, but with good grounds and equipment so we just do whatever we want! I compete a lot through pony club, not as much nowadays but when you was younger it was every weekend. I also got into the NSW pony club mounted games squad. The opportunities PC provides young riders are fantastic and I'm a big believer in it. Sometimes the politics get a bit trying but hey, you learn to ignore it!

I've been in Pony Club for about a year. I love it!

The hills were bathed in moonlight, the shadows not so stark;
Silver light reflected off his brown hide as he held me in the dark
I love you, Mudpie!
