About Pony Club

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.

The Pony Club Pledge

"As a member of The United States Pony Club, I stand for the best in sportsmanship as well as in horsemanship.  I shall compete for the enjoyment of the game well played and take winning or losing in stride, remembering that without good manners and good temper, sport loses its cause for being.  I shall endeavor to maintain the best tradition of the ancient and noble skill of horsemanship, always treating my horse with consideration due a partner."

Our Core Values

Horsemanship with respect to healthcare, nutrition, stable management, handling and riding a mount safely, correctly and with confidence 
Organized teamwork including cooperation, communication, responsibility, leadership, mentoring, teaching and fostering a supportive yet competitive environment 
Respect for the horse and self through horsemanship; for land through land conservation; and for others through service and teamwork 
Service by providing an opportunity for members, parents, and others to support the Pony Club program locally, regionally and nationally through volunteerism 
Education at an individual pace to achieve personal goals and expand knowledge through teaching others
