The mission of the United States Pony Club is to provide a program for youth that teaches riding, mounted sports, and the care of horses and ponies, developing responsibility, moral judgment, leadership and self-confidence. Pony Club is one of the leading junior equestrian organizations in the world, represented throughout 30 countries. The United States has over 600 individual Clubs spread throughout the states and the Virgin Islands, with more than 12,000 members.
In 2011 Brook Hill Farm became an official United States Pony Club Riding Center in the Old Dominion Region. Membership is offered to participants with more advanced skills and allows them the opportunity to mainstream in equine activities.
Brook Hill Farm’s mission encompasses the same core values as Pony Club; those of horsemanship, teamwork, respect, service and education.
The curriculum of Pony Club includes riding on the flat, over fences, and in the open, providing an instructional program both mounted and unmounted, at all levels. The participants are able to attain certifications that are internationally recognized.
Brook Hill participants have access to all the opportunities and activities that the Pony Club offers its regular club members, including clinics, rallies, international exchanges, National Youth Congress, championships, college scholarships, and so much more!
Brook Hill has consistently placed members onto the Championship show jumping team. The students on the right were 6th in the nation, and the participant on the left got 1st and 2nd’s!
Youth that are ready to participate are invited to join us! Currently we have 10 participants!
We are so proud of our Pony Club members!
