Pony Club

PonyClubMount Pleasant District Pony Club


aims to encourage young people to ride and learn to enjoy all kinds of sports connected with horses and riding.

The club provides instruction in riding and horsemanship and instils in its member’s the proper care of their animals, whilst promoting the highest ideals of sportsmanship, citizenship and loyalty, therefore cultivating strength of character and self-discipline.

The club welcomes both junior and adult members, and is located at Talunga Park, Mount Pleasant.

Rallies are generally held on the first Sunday of the month, unless the date clashes with another event or the Mount Barker forecast temperature exceeds 35 degrees Celsius. Rallies generally involve a gear check at 9:30am, followed by 2 ridden sessions, then a shared lunch break, followed by another ridden or theory session after lunch.

The Pony Club membership year runs from 1st July to 30th June. If you are not sure about becoming a Pony Club
Member and would like to try first, we offer a "Come and Try" fee of $30 which provides insurance cover for 3 months from payment date or 3 pony club rallies (which ever happens first). We also charge a nominal $10 rally fee in excess of the $30 insurance charge to help cover the cost of instruction per "Come and Try" rally attendance. Should you then decide to join as a full member, any of the above payments are deducted from your membership fee.
