The Western Ontario Region of the Canadian Pony Club is located in Southwestern Ontario and is bordered by Lake Erie on the south, Lake Huron and Georgian Bay on the north, the state of Michigan on the west, and HWY 27 which runs roughly from Toronto to Barrie on the east.
We have approximately 200 members in the Western Ontario Region. Each of them has the opportunity to take part in activities within their own Branch and in addition, we hold annual Region wide competitions in Quiz , D Rally , A/B/C Rally , Tetrathlon , Dressage , Show Jumping, Prince Philip Games , and Le Trec. Testing is also a key component to our membership program.
National and International competitions are also held in most of the above activities and Western Ontario is one of the most active Regions in those events. We almost always send teams to all National events and usually have one or more representatives on International teams which represent Canada in world-wide Pony Club competitions.
Membership fees vary depending on the amount of instruction, clinics, or other services provided by each Branch. However, since the main support for Pony Club is volunteers, all Branch fees represent a very high value for the money.
