Pony Club believes that our Alumni are our greatest achievement, and our investment toward assuring a strong, vibrant equestrian culture in the future.
Pony Club Alumni can be found all over the world, in show rings, veterinary practices, boardrooms and classrooms, gracing Olympic podiums or shoeing horses in your neighborhood barn. They are coaches, teachers, executives, law officers, parents and citizens just like you.
They are the people who are making a difference by giving back to their communities through the same volunteerism that was part of their formative journey. But they all share a common experience and that is the lifelong connection to the Pony Club family.
With clubs operating in 27 countries around the globe, Pony Club Alumni have friends and peers wherever they go. Many lifelong friendships have had their roots in the shared journey that is Pony Club.

I remember going to Pony Club camp 3 years, once with my Shetland/Arabian pony Shell B; once with my Welsh pony Morwhin; and once with my Grandmother's horse, Harvey. I trained under David Godson, and I remember going to the Meredith farm for swims. I know I fell off many times, but I loved riding, so I always got back on. After pony club, I continued riding, since my mother was so horse crazy - she still is, at 70, doing 50 mile endurance rides, and has over 12 horses in the barn. I rode Western and English, Mickey Mouse shows and Arabian shows, fairs, parades, trail competitions, and was always helping train one of the many horses at home. At 12 and 15, I won Arabian Horse Association Ontarion Division Junior Western Rider. At 19, I lived near Inglewood with my Grandmother and worked for six months at Armbro Farms, taking care of brood mares, and handling the yearlings. When I moved away to the city to attend college, I lived on a Starbred Breeding Farm and fed and cleaned stalls evenings and week-ends to pay my board. Being far away in the city, I have been unable to get to the farm to ride much, but I enjoy it when I can.

Hi! I had soo much fun in the Pony Club, it probably kept me out of a lot of trouble! Great memories....National Quiz, Kananaskis '96 Very Fun! Regional Rally, Maple Ridge, B.C. 97-98 ?? Best Memory ...Winning scholarship to the Horse People Inc. for two weeks!!!! That Was The Best. I made friends from all over and rode tons of great horses, great experience and confidence builder! And so much more..........
My most special memory was of the 3 day rally in Campbellville when my sister Cathy was captain of the team and we won the great gold pitchfork for Stable Management with an unheard of +8 points. Those I remember who were on the team were my dear sister Cathy Good (Captain), Sarah Farmer, Sheila Dowler, Jeff Blcakall, Mardie Weldon, Cathy Brandon, Nicki Brandon, Anne Michelsen, Mary Jo McNaught, Jane McNaught. I wonder how accurate thia is but it is close. Sorry for those who will come to my mind later! My guess is maybe 1971-ish for the time frame.
