FORBES PONY CLUB

We offer a blend of fun, education and competition.  We are located in a major agricultural region in the centre of NSW. We provide a welcoming and supportive atmosphere to young riders and their parents. Our grounds are located next to the Forbes Showground where we have an Olympic size sand dressage arena, mobile showjumping facilities, wash bay, lunging area, canteen, and a beginner rider area. We are part of the Pony Club Association of Australia and Zone 11. See the membership link for further information. I am super excited to be part of a club which is going from strength to strength. There is always plenty to do, as well as plenty of people to meet. I think the best thing to have as any volunteer is a supportive and positive team around and I am pleased to say that we have that team. Come along to meetings, events, and rally days.

Activity Days

Forbes Pony Club networks with local community, neighbouring pony clubs in Zone 11 and NSW Pony Club Association to provide the best possible instructional and competition programme. The Club has a number of different activities planned throughout the 2015 calendar.

Rally Days include instruction in the following disciplines: Showjumping, Showjumping Equitation, Sporting and Mounted Games, Dressage,Cross-Country [eventing], Horsemanship, Musical Riding, Grooming, Presentation, Horse Health, Road Safety, Proficiency Certificates.

Rally Days are held at regular intervals (usually once or twice a month) at which riders receive their instruction on riding and caring for their pony. These rallies are run by voluntary instructors and are the backbone of the movement.
