What is Pony Club?
Pony Club is the largest equestrian educational organization in the world. This is where it all begins! The cornerstones of our program are education, safety, sportsmanship, stewardship and FUN. Members learn riding and the care of horses through mounted sports. Through good horsemanship, members learn teamwork, respect, responsibility, and good stewardship. The skills, habits and values instilled through horsemanship will apply to every part of a member’s life.

The Oregon Region of Pony Club is an affiliate of the United States Pony Club. We run according to the by-laws of the national organization, yet we are singularly a Pacific Northwest subsidiary. Where else expects rain, snow, or even hail during our spring rallies? The Oregon Region was started in 1988. Even earlier, Quest Pony Club started meeting at the Lake Oswego Hunt club in 1977. Today, our region is currently composed of 11 clubs and two riding centers. Our membership is composed of both youth and adult members who share a love of horses and enjoy socializing with like-minded individuals.
Each year we offer our members several opportunities to compete at regional rallies, where members compete in disciplines, such as Eventing, Dressage, Show Jumping, Tetrathlon, and Quiz. We also offer multiple educational opportunities at regular club-level lessons, regional clinics, and a summer camp. Participating members also have access to the Pony Club online community, sponsor discounts, educational standards and achievements, a Pony Club Pin, and the chance to participate in activities such as Championships and Pony Club Festival. A host of additional programs such as international exchanges, USEF Pony Finals, Dressage for Kids, National Youth Board, National Youth Congress, scholarships, and the Visiting Instructors Program are available to members who develop and progress through Pony Club.
If you are a parent, youth, or adult rider looking for a great way to further your equestrian experience, please contact us for more information. We welcome new members at any time during the year, all year long!
