Rally Days are held at regular intervals (usually once or twice a month) at which riders receive their instruction on riding and caring for their pony. These rallies are run by voluntary instructors and are the backbone of the movement.
Pony Club NSW presents regular high level coaching to riders with an above average standard in a particular discipline. Riders receive instruction from some of the top coaches in the state.
Instructors Schools are held at regular intervals at a Club, Zone and State level. The aim of the schools is to educate instructors and potential instructors to give them an opportunity to gain or improve their qualifications for instruction at Pony Clubs.
Pony Club NSW holds a Camp each year for the top 15 riders in the State in their chosen discipline, Dressage, Showjumping, Eventing and Mounted Games. These riders come together and are instructed by top Australian coaches.
Competitions are held at a Club, Zone, State, National and International level. Pony Club NSW holds 9 state championships a year. While a number of clubs and zones also have regular competitions on an annual basis.
