About Huntsville Pony Club:
Here are some useful links:
We, as a club, have goals that we hope each member strives to achieve through the club. The goals include:
-To foster the safe enjoyment of horses and riding.
-To guide and support riders in setting and achieving realisitc goals.
-To develop an understanding of and sympathy for the horse and our riders.
-To provide a sequential education program in riding, horse and barn management, and competition.
-To provide parents an opportunity to share in and support (through their own skills and interests) the rider's love of horses and riding.
-To provide riding opportunities that allow parents to pool resources and keep the significant costs associated with this sport from becoming prohibitive.
-To make known to parents and the community the developmental beliefs of the discipline and responsibility involved in riding and horse care.
Just like USPC, HPC takes into consideration all of the other disciplines involved in Pony Club.

Pony Club Pledge
“As a member of the United States Pony Club, I stand for the best in
sportsmanship as well as in horsemanship. I shall compete for the
enjoyment of the game well played and take winning or losing in stride,
remembering that without good manners and good temper, sport
loses its cause for being. I shall endeavor to maintain the best
tradition of the ancient and noble skill of horsemanship, always
treating my horse with consideration due a partner.”
