The Pony Club is a world wide voluntary youth organisation founded in 1929.
The Irish Pony Club is the main equestrian organisation in Ireland that provides training in all disciplines of equestrian activities for members up to the age of 23.
The Irish Pony Club endeavours to promote and encourage good horsemanship and loyalty in a safe and fun atmosphere for all its members and volunteers.
We are a member of the Euro Pony Club.
The objectives of the Irish Pony Club are:
- To encourage young people to ride and to learn to enjoy all kinds of sport connected with horses and riding.
- To provide instruction in riding and horsemanship, and to instil in members the proper care of their animals.
- To promote the highest ideals of sportsmanship, citizenship and loyalty, thereby cultivating strength of character and self-discipline.
The Irish Pony Club endeavours to promote and encourage horsemanship and loyalty in a safe and fun atmosphere for all its members and volunteers.
The Irish Pony Club is fully committed to safeguarding the wellbeing of its members.
Every individual in the Pony club should, at all times, show respect and understanding for their own and others’ rights, safety and welfare, and conduct themselves in a way that reflects the principles of the Pony Club and the guidelines contained in the Code of Ethics and Good Practice for Children’s Sport.
