What is Pony Club?


"As a member of The 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 my stride, remembering that without good manners and good temper, sport loses its cause for being. I shall treat my horse with consideration."

The Pony Club is an international youth organisation which helps to develop equestrian sport by encouraging young people to have fun whilst learning to ride, and to take good care of ponies or horses.

Pony Club also encourages young people to enjoy a variety of sports associated with horses and provides instruction in horse riding and horse care. Our holistic focus means that we also develop the character of our members, by promoting sportsmanship, respect for animals and people, self-discipline and strength of character.

The South African Pony Club is the foundation of countless sports riders in our country. The excellent ground work that the SAPC strives to put in place has formed a firm footing for many top riders and instructors in this country, and around the world.

There are SAPC branches in five regions throughout South Africa; Gauteng, Limpopo, KwaZulu-Natal, Eastern Cape and Western Cape.
