The Zone 16 Pony Club Association of New South Wales is the controlling body for Pony Clubs in the ACT and surrounding NSW region where young people can ride and learn all disciplines of equestrian sports. The Association co-ordinates, develops and promotes pony clubs in the zone and is committed to providing a high standard of instruction for its members.
We are a not-for-profit organisation invested into the development of horse riding in the ACT and surrounding NSW region through targeting grassroots, and elite development programs, competitions and education programs. We exist to encourage horsemanship amongst our members, to provide appropriate coaching and competition, and to raise awareness of sportsmanship and citizenship of our members. Our mission is to provide appropriate coaching and competition, to raise awareness of sportsmanship and citizenship of our members, in order to assist its members to become proficient in their chosen sport.
Children and young adults up to the age of 25 have the opportunity to learn the skills of riding and general horsemanship and compete at both club, zone & state events. It is one of the few sports where males and females compete on equal terms.
There are 14 Pony Clubs in Zone 16. Here they are:
Each of these Clubs has its own meeting place, uniforms, events, rally/training days, sponsors, and committees.
