Brook Hill Farm United States Pony Club Riding Center
In 2011 Brook Hill Farm became an official United States Pony Club Riding Center in the Old Dominion Region, offering membership to United Neigh participants who have more advanced skills, and the capability 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 at-risk youth are able to attain certifications that are internationally recognized. Youth involved in the United Neigh Program can earn the right to become a member of the USPC, as they strive to maintain the core values of Pony Club.
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 national show jumping team.
