How do you join a Pony Club?

There are many pony clubs to choose from in both the metropolitan and regional areas. Although all clubs offer the same structure and syllabus, each club will be slightly different in terms of numbers, instructors, fees and when their rallies are held.

All the membership categories are listed below however it is best to talk to individual clubs to get an idea of which club is best suited to your needs.

All memberships can be completed and renewed through the My Pony Club Database
