    This is an opportunity to camp and learn horsemanship and riding skills along with meeting other juniors that are members of Pony Club throughout California.

    • The United States Pony Clubs, Inc. started in 1954 to teach riding and the proper care of horses. It is based on The British Pony Club, which was created in 1929 as a junior branch of the Institute of the Horse. Since then, Pony Club has expanded to many countries around the world, with the main goal being to promote sportsmanship, stewardship and leadership through horsemanship.
    • What is in a name? Back in 1929, the term “pony” was used to describe the mount of a youth equestrian. With a name steeped in the tradition of educating the next generation of equestrians, the name Pony Club continues to focus on education and quality care of both horses and ponies.

    This camp has been an annual event for Santa Cruz Pony Club for over 50 years.  It is a fun a low key event with a one day show on Sunday. (Dressage/Jumping)

    Don't miss out on the fun!  Contact scchajuniors@yahoo.com to make your reservation by FRIDAY June 22nd.  Participants must be members of United States Pony Club or SCCHA prior to registration and submission of camp entry.
