Canadian Pony Club is a member-based association, managed by volunteers, mandated to serve the needs of Canadian youth, ages 6 to 25 years of age and adults (21 and up), who are interested in riding, learning about and/or caring for horses or ponies. Canadian Pony Club is incorporated as a national not-for-profit organization, and carries Canadian registered charity status.
Canadian Pony Club is committed to the vision:
To provide the opportunity for every person in Canada to have a positive experience with horses through providing opportunities:
- For education
- To learn responsibility, sportsmanship and good citizenship
- For enjoyment and/or competitive success with horses
Today, Canada has about 150 branches and a membership of over 2,100. Pony Club is further supported by some 1,000 volunteers.
Extending from Napanee west to Highway 27, from Lake Ontario all the way to the northern borders of the province, Central Ontario Region currently has 15 branches with 200 members.
In addition to our Education and Testing, key regional events are:
- Le Trec

Pony Club also offers some these disciplines at the National and even International levels for members who meet competition eligibility. Pony Club also offers a variety of clinics to its members, in a diverse range of topics, both mounted and unmounted.
