About the Club
Busselton Horse and Pony Club was established in 1972 and ever since it has been encouraging youth involvement with equine activities. Pony Club, through its activities, is a world wide youth organisation for those interested in horses, ponies and riding. The Pony Club movement is the largest association of riders in the world.
Pony Club is a voluntary youth organisation which exists to promote the physical, mental and spiritual development of young people, encouraging in them an awareness of responsibility, sportsmanship and citizenship. The Pony Club differs from other youth movements because the horse is used as the main centre of interest around which to cultivate strength of character and self-discipline.
