Pony Club is for horse crazy kids ages seven to seventeen, who want to meet horse crazy friends and learn everything about horses. Meet up with other members and spend time learning about horse care, horse health, and riding through mounted and unmounted meetings and rallies!
Black Dog Farm Pony Club (BDFPC) members have the opportunity to participate in mounted riding lessons, unmounted horsemanship education, clinics, camps, and team rallies. Our Pony Club meets every two weeks on Monday and Tuesdays. BDFPC is separated in meetings based on skill level, but all rallies are done all together as a group.
Mounted instruction focuses on show jumping, eventing and dressage; but also includes tetrathlon, polocrosse, mounted games, vaulting and fox hunting! Unmounted instruction focuses on horse ownership, veterinarian skills, basic first aid, lameness exams, groundwork skills, trailer loading, blanketing, nutrition, and much more!
As of 2021, BDFPC membership is only open to Black Dog Farm riding students, We hope to expand our outreach to other soon. BDFPC is not affiliated with USPC and does not fall under their regulation.
