how old are you ? [just wondering it doesnt matter that much !]

i was in pony club for a few years, it was really fun & i learned TONS. i went from D1-C3. i havent been a member for the past 2yrs though just because of the cost & i wanted to focus on showing so i needed to save my money.

if there is a club in your area you should go to a mounted or unmounted meeting & see what that individual club is like & how involved they are =D

I loooved pony club, I was a member for about 10 years. I was mostly a gamer, but also had evented and played a little polocrosse. You really get to try so many different disciplines if you choose to, the pony club I was in also offered the opportunity to fox hunt for free with a older sponser. Most of the best horsey memories are from pony club. You get to meet a ton of people there, I am still in contact with my pony club friends even though I haven't been a member in over 7 years (cus I'm too old haha).

Pony club is great. I don't do it anymore, but you really get to experience a lot! However, its really important you like the people in the club or else it could get a bit boring.

I highly recommend Pony Club! Absolutely! I went from D to C3 and loved it. I learnt alot, grew and matured as a rider and made alot of friends. I competed all the time, loved the lessons and the benefit of clinics offered to us.

If you want to become a Coach, Pony Club is a great way to do it. You learn so much, from Nutrition to Medical Care, Stable Management and everything inbetween.

A good friend of mine, actually compleated her Pony Club Levels and now runs her own Eventing Barn in Canada.

I say go for it :)

Do it!

Pony Club is a great program. I was part of it for a few years. They have some barn management and theory classes during the winter and riding lessons during the summer. It's very affordable and a lot of fun as well.

The lessons are usually roated between dressage lessons, jumping and cross country and you are placed in a group of your riding level. They also organize some fun shows and some competitions that can take part in which is how you will pass your pony club levels.

It really is a lot of fun. If you have the chance to go, regardless of your riding ability I would go and do it. Unfortunately for me, I'm now to old for them but would still definitely still be in it if I had the chance.

Pony Club is great, it also depends on the pony club you are at as well. It doesn't matter how old you are or what type of riding you do. Pony club usually has it all.
