U.S. Pony Clubs Investigates Inclusion of Western Disciplines into Program

Lexington, KY: According to Tom Adams, President of U.S. Pony Clubs, the historically English-riding based organization is looking for feedback from the equestrian community regarding the possibility of providing Western activities within the framework of Pony Club.

Adams states, "Since we started Pony Club in 1954, our programs have been oriented to English riding. In the past few years there has been interest expressed in offering the Pony Club experience to those young people taking part in Western disciplines as well. The USPC Board of Governors is seeking input from the equestrian community outside of Pony Club about providing such a program.”

Adams adds, "If you’re not already affiliated with Pony Club, we are seeking your input to help in the decision process. Your participation is very important, and I urge you to take just a few minutes of your time to respond to this short survey.”

The survey is available at http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/BQPFLGN

The popular Pony Club program, which includes a progressive rating system for skills measurement of its members, teaches all aspects of horsemanship and is well known for developing strong management skills. Pony Club also has an exemplary safety record.

The U.S. Pony Clubs is a non-profit educational organization whose goal is to develop character, leadership, confidence, and a sense of community in youth through a program that teaches the care of horses and ponies, riding, and mounted sports. Pony Club is open to youth up to age 25. Members participate in team competitions known as rallies in a variety of disciplines including quiz, dressage, eventing, mounted games, tetrathlon, show jumping, and polocrosse. There are over 600 Pony Clubs and Riding Centers throughout the country.
