We enjoy all sorts of equestrian activities such as:

New members, of any ability, and any age from 6 to 25, are more than welcome. You will need to own or lease a horse, however if you don't have one yet our members have lots of contacts who may be able to help you find one.

Do you want to become a qualified pony club instructor?

Our club needs more accredited pony club instructors. Upon successful completion of the pony club instructor course you will have achieved the required standard as outlined by the Australian Sports Commission as a coach registered with the National Coaching Accreditation Scheme (NCAS).

Our club runs regular courses dependant on demand. 

The course requires that you complete a work book, which is then submitted to PCA NSW, and attend an assessment conducted by PCA NSW. The work book is completed during a few evening meetings with your mentor and the other candidates. Your mentor will support you all the way.

You can do it!

For more information talk to our Club Captain Ian Charnaud.
