New President Takes the Pony Club Reins

February 8, 2012 (Lexington, KY) – The Pony Club reins were handed over to a new President during the Annual Meeting of the corporation this January in New Orleans, LA. Although Pony Club is sad to see the end of past president Tom Adams’ term, they are looking forward to being guided into the future by new president Dan Murphy.

Dan is an attorney in Los Angeles, California, who specializes in securities and other business litigation. He has been a member of the United States Pony Clubs, Inc., board for seven years and was First Vice President for the last three years. He has experience in both the legal issues facing tax-exempt organizations as well as in fundraising. Dan has two daughters who are members of the Santa Ynez Valley Pony Club. Dan and his girls are active eventing riders.

During the Annual Meeting, Dan emphasized that Pony Club finds itself in the right place at the right time. "Many of the other equestrianorganizations are recognizing the critical importance of insuring that new generations of equestrians are equipped to carry forward the traditions of overall horsemanship. For nearly sixty years, Pony Club has provided young equestrians with the tools to become superb overall horse people and leaders in their communities.” Dan added, "We intend to make the Pony Club program available to more young equestrians and help to ensure the continued future vitality of the equestrian pursuits we love."

About 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 many of our Olympic team members and many business professionals, government leaders and career military officers, have roots in Pony Club. Youth members range in age from as young as 4 through age 25, and include adult members of the Horsemasters Program. There are approximately 10,000 members in 600 clubs and riding centers in 43 regions throughout the country www.ponyclub.org.
