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.
Hazelmere Pony Club
1990 to 95
I represented the B.C Lower Mainland region several time at National rally and Quizz. OUr 1st time out at national rally we came in second overall and the next year the same team of girls won the whole event. Pony club is truley a character build experience that I will always look fondly on. I hope my own children will get to experience it for themselves one day!
Level A Pony Club opened an entire new world for me! All aspects were a thrill; from the barn management, horsemanship, to lessons and lectures, testing (as a candidate and a tester) and as a competitor. I still have friends around the world because of PC. I competed in Rallies from 'observer' then 'D' to 'A' 'B' 'C'. I rode in show jumping and dressage championships and took part in quiz from D to B. I was part of the International Pony Club Exchange in '80? in Ontario.

Pony Club was amazing.Teaching us so much about so many things,i truely dont know where to start so will just say thankyou to those involved.
I had Bing, and Babe (Sweet times), and also worked for Rosshire Farms (Joacky Roussum) showing Luke, Teddy, Domino, Dwayne etc.. Donny Ferguson with Flicka was a main competitor, along with Billy Boy, whose rider's name I can't recall. Ginny (Virginia) Edwards was a friend. Mrs. Hall-Holland lent me a horse called Rain Cheque to do an instructors course with a person who came over from England. She was a special lady, and very motivational. I remember Raffles, and Regarde, and Reserve. They named all their horses with "R". I still ride and even have just stared another 2 year old quarter horse for cutting at age 59. Horses forever! Billy Boys Rider was Sharon Anderson---old memories!!!

Pony Club was one of the most special times of my life. I had always wanted a horse and when Robert and Joan Coates started up a pony club 3 miles away from our home I joined up. We must have looked a motley crew that 1st night -all I remember was my horse reared throughout the ride down and the ride back. We usually rode to pony club so in the end,in one pony club night we spent 4-5 hours in the saddle. Over the next years we learnt proper stable management and with lots of work and study I attained my B2, went up to preliminary level with my small quarter horse mare,and attended regional and national rallies.I still believe Pony Club builds character and helps develop life long friendships.
