Waimea Pony Club meets twice per month at Rough Island Equestrian Park, on the second and fourth Saturdays in each month.
We have a vast range of rider ability from Lead Rein to B Certificate. We have about 60 current members who come together with the common passion for riding and learning about their horse/pony.
Pony Club is a great way to meet new friends and learn new skills. Watching your child ride and look after their pony is very satisfying, especially as they develop new skills and confidence. Some of these ways are:
- Encouragement of FAIR PLAY.
- Caring for their horse/pony.
- Learning new riding skills and perfecting established skills.
- FUN with horses/ponies and making new friends with similar interests.
- Opportunities to compete in teams in Mounted Games, Dressage, Show Jumping and Eventing.
- Opportunities to sit certificates at various levels.
Many of New Zealand’s top riders began their equestrian careers at a local Pony Club. All our Olympic equestrian riders were Pony Club members!
