New Plymouth Pony Club members range in age and ability and every member is catered for, no matter what their ability. Our instructors work with groups of 3-6 riders who are at similar riding levels.
As a pony club member you receive quality instruction at rallies and membership also provides you with the opportunity to represent New Plymouth, North Taranaki and Taranaki Area Pony Clubs at competitions.
Opportunities are available to work towards certificates of achievement, beginning with the D certificate and working through D+, C, C+, B, H and A certificates.

Registration for new members
New members that join for the very first time are eligible for a starters pack from NZPCA. Please let our secretary or Head Coach know if you are a new (first time) member so we can provide you with a pack.
Pony Club uniform is compulsory for all rallies except twilight rallies where members can wear mufti provided they have the correct helmet, long sleeves and jodhpurs.
New members are expected to have the correct uniform after the first few rallies. The uniform consists of a helmet (with an approved, current safety rating), black or brown leather boots (short or long), light-coloured jodhpurs, a long sleeved white blouse with a top button (no short sleeves allowed), forest green vest, and a green tie with a Pony Club pin. You can order these from the secretary.
We have introduced a more modern uniform in recent years which has a lightweight fabric in our colours of white and green. With this shirt you do not need to wear a vest. You must still ensure your Pony Club pin is pinned to the chest area of this uniform. You can order this shirt through Pony Club.
You can purchase or order most of the above items at different shops in town:
The Warehouse (white school shirts and forest green sweatshirts, vests or jerseys).
The Tack Shack at Moturoa Shopping Centre (boots, jodhpurs, ties and helmets and everything else you want for yourself and your equine friends).
Saddlery Warehouse at Hurlstone Drive.
