Pony Club Announces Partnership Opportunities

The United States Pony Clubs, Inc. (USPC or Pony Club) invites the horse industry and equestrian community to partner with Pony Club this year as the organization celebrates 70 years. Since 1954, more than 150,000 equestrians have gotten their start through Pony Club. Today, Pony Club is the largest equine educational organization teaching horse care, safe horsemanship, and riding in both English and western disciplines. Members of all ages and mounts of all sizes are included in Pony Club, and the skills learned in Pony Club—leadership, sportsmanship, confidence, responsibility, teamwork, and more—last a lifetime.

“As we celebrate Pony Club’s 70th year in 2024, there has never been a better time to partner with Pony Club,” says Marian Wahlgren, USPC Director of Development. “Your support helps Pony Club continue to create more knowledgeable horse owners and grow the future of equestrian sport, in addition to producing the next generation of leaders for the horse industry and beyond. We are proud to be a nonprofit organization, and incredibly grateful for all that our partners make possible for our members.”
