Meetings

Mounted Meetings

Mounted meetings are designed to give consistent mounted instruction in a peer group setting based on the age and rating level of the pony clubber. Groups are small, but by being in a group, the cost of a lesson is reduced. Mounted meetings are intended to supplement the rider's regular instruction program. Children should be riding regularly with their own instructors in addition to mounted meetings. Remember, reservations are required. 

Spring, summer and fall mounted meetings for all are scheduled as time permits. Indoor mounted meetings will be held in January, February and March on many Sundays,  normally in the afternoon.  There is a charge of $10 for most lessons. 

Lessons are announced via email.  Space in lessons is limited; make sure to respond to the organizer if you intend to ride.
 

Unmounted Meetings

As fall arrives and competitions quiet down, Pony Clubbers have time to turn their attention to the RHPC Education Groups. Once cold weather actually arrives these classes will help you keep your "heels down" even when you can't do as much riding. There is so much to learn about horse management and horsemanship. Join an education group and enjoy being involved with your pony club friends. Your involvement in an Education Group will help down the road, especially when you go for your next rating.

Our meetings take the form of discussion, lecture, videos, guest lecturers and hands on work. Remember to dress warmly and always wear appropriate footwear, i.e. riding boots, when working around horses. Pony Clubbers need to purchase The United States Pony Club Manual of Horsemanship - D Manual and/or The United States Pony Club Manual of Horsemanship - C Manual depending on their level. There is also a B Manual.  They can be purchased online at the USPC Bookstore or from most major bookstore chains.

The Pony Club Pledge

As a member of the United States Pony Clubs, 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 stride, remembering that without good manners and good temper, sport loses its cause for being. I shall endeavor to maintain the best tradition of the ancient and noble skill of horsemanship, always treating my horse with consideration due a partner.
