Riders Without Horses Program


The Pony Club Association of Victoria together with a large number of affiliated clubs have
taken the initiative with their "Riders without Horses Program" The program is designed to support
and encourage children who do not own a horse, but have a love for horses and riding,
to become part of Pony Club activities.  This sets the foundation for a "Non Owner" of a
horse/pony to have a better understanding of horsemanship and the obvious commitment to his mount.

The prime objective of the program is to provide non horse owners with the opportunity to
participate and become members of 
the Pony Club Movement (the largest association of riders in the world)
with the added advantage 
of not having the initial costs of purchasing a horse/pony.

The Pony Club Movement offers a safe environment for beginners to learn the fundamentals of riding,
our instruction priorities are, the safety of the rider at all times, the care of his/her horse,
and the fun and excitement of being part of a team with a common love and interest for horses and riding.

Riders Without Horses is a 12 month program commencing on 1st July annually
and is open to children aged 8+ years
