The United States Pony Clubs, Inc. started in 1954 to teach riding and the proper care of horses. It is based on 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, with the main goal being to promote sportsmanship, stewardship and leadership through horsemanship.

What is in a name? Back in 1929, the term “pony” was used to describe the mount of a youth equestrian. With a name steeped in the tradition of educating the next generation of equestrians, the name Pony Club continues to focus on education and quality care of both horses and ponies.

Today, membership in US Pony Club is available to EVERYONE regardless of age or size of horse.  If you are interested in attaining the very best equine education in the world, being surrounded by like minded riders and horse lovers and participating in events and competitions that allow the rider to demonstrate their outstanding skills, then Pony Club is for you.
