What is Pony Club?
The United States Pony Clubs, Inc (USPC) was founded in 1954 as a nonprofit national youth organization to teach riding and horsemanship through a formal educational program. Many of the nation's top equestrians, including most of our Olympic Equestrian team members, have Pony Club roots. Members range in age from as young as 4 through age 25. Activities are English-riding based and members ride both horses and ponies, depending on the size of the rider and the discipline in which s/he is competing. All Pony Club competition is team competition, much like the Olympic Games, where members learn the importance of cooperation and teamwork.
There are approximately 12,500 members of USPC in 625 clubs throughout the country. Along with an emphasis on helping its members learn to ride and care for horses, Pony Club promotes teamwork, a sense of responsibility, safety, good moral judgment and self-confidence.
SENECA VALLEY PONY CLUB is a local club that offers many lesson programs including: eventing, dressage, stadium jumping, and mounted games as well as clinics in horse care and health.
