BC Lower Mainland Region
Welcome to the British Columbia Lower Mainland Region of the Canadian Pony Club. We are a volunteer organization for young people up to the age of 25 who want to learn more about horses, riding, and horse care.
We have over 200 registered members who belong to twelve branches distributed between Chilliwack in the eastern Upper Fraser Valley to Vancouver in the west. Our youngest members are about 6 years of age and the majority of our membership are in the 8-15 year range.
For more detailed information about Pony Club, visit the Canadian Pony Club website. New members and everyone interested in joining Pony Club are advised to look at the Welcome material there.
On December 1st our Regional Education day is happening with two very interesting speakers from 11:00am until 2:30pm at Cornwall ridge Equestrian. Dr. Theresa Burns on contagious diseases and Val Micah with Boehringer Ingelheim Animal Health (Equine) on internal parasites.
We also have a Learn to Teach and Learn to Lunge clinic targeted at members testing C2 and above. This will start at 9:30am and run for the full day (depending on the number of applicants). There is a session on the Friday evening prior to the clinic to go over teaching information. The cost is $20/person to participate. Other members are welcome to audit for free. Money will be collected on the day of the clinic.
Please RSVP to email@example.com.
Branch education reps please collect numbers/names of those interested in attending and let me know.
The Calendar of Events is always being updated. Please see our Google Calendar for the most up-to-date information.
