The Vancouver Pony Club operates out of the Southlands Riding Club in Vancouver. Our membership stretches throughout the city and includes the North Shore. Membership is age is 6 thru 25 years.
Membership is $270.00 per year for new members and $220 for returning members. A $200 Volunteer Deposit is taken at the time of registration.
The VPC does not offer riding lessons, but instead focuses on education, horse care, social activities and testing, both written and practical. The program normally operates from October to June, with several social events in between.
Annual VPC registration is in September. Sessions start with Stable Management in the Fall at the Southlands Riding Club, followed by testing in the spring. Members must have a current 2021 Horse Council of BC Membership. You may register or renew at Horse Council of BC

Each member parent or guardian will track their volunteer hours. If 25 hours is complete, your volunteer cheque is reimbursed.
