Your role at The Pony Club

The Pony Club is a voluntary youth organisation for young people within an equestrian environment. Fairness should take precedence over competitiveness. Teaching by example will foster caring and respect for all. The Pony Club is fully committed to safeguarding and promoting the wellbeing of all its members and the highest ideals of sportsmanship, citizenship and loyalty to create strength of character and self-discipline. It is important that all members, parents / guardians, officials, volunteers and coaches should, at all times, show respect and understanding for the safety and welfare of others.


Parents play a vital role in their child’s Pony Club journey – from supporting and guiding their progress, to volunteering at local events. The following guidelines should be followed by parents/guardians:

  • be a positive role model for your child and other members
  • respect coaches, officials, volunteers, members and other parents
  • remember that the main aim of The Pony Club is to teach fairness over competitiveness
  • teach members to show sportsmanship, teamwork and supportiveness
  • use appropriate conduct at all times, including on social media channels
  • promote the wellbeing of members and their ponies ahead of winning
