About Pony Club NSW
Pony Club NSW, established in 1946, is the largest recognised state body for pony clubs in Australia and one of the largest associations of riders in the world.
Pony Club NSW is a not-for-profit organisation invested into the development of horse riding in NSW through targeting grassroots, and elite development programs, competitions and education programs.
Pony Club NSW exists to encourage horsemanship amongst its members, to provide appropriate coaching and competition, and to raise awareness of sportsmanship and citizenship of its members.
Pony Club NSW has over 270 clubs with over 13, 000 members. NSW has the largest representation of Australian Pony Club memberships at approximately 40%. These Pony Clubs operate from Tweed Heads in the north of the state to Eden in the south. These clubs include riding members up to the age of 25, and non-riding members such as parents and coaches. Such institutions represent the absolute grassroots level of horse riding in NSW. Some of the activities provided by Pony Clubs in NSW include training and competition in dressage, jumping (showjumping and jumping equitation), cross country, sporting, mounted games, polocrosse, trail rides, campdrafting, show riding, eventing and many others.
