About Us

The Pony Club is a voluntary organisation where young people who love ponies and riding can join and progress to what ever level of equestrianism they desire.

There are over 220 Pony Club Members from all over Kildare in the Kildare Hunt Pony Club aged from 7 to 23 years of age. Membership of The Pony Club offers fun, friendship, training, events and competitions throughout the year for all standards of riding from lead rein to international competition. Kildare Hunt Pony club is in existence since 1953 and has been the life blood of equestrian activity in Kildare region for the past 50 years. The current structure of the club is in place for a number of years now and has proved very successful to date in growing and expanding the club. The challenge we face going forward is catering for the needs of 250+ members ranging from 6 and 7 year olds who are just getting their first taste of riding to some of our teenagers who compete internationally on Irish teams on both horses and ponies. An additional challenge is the requirement to cater for all levels of riding for all ages with the maximum age now extended to 23 years of age.

Wrapped around the core working element of the club is the administration where the day to day running of the club is catered for. The Administration layer is there to support, guide and assist the club as a whole and to interact with the IPC governing body to ensure our members are properly represented and that we are up to date with progress, changes etc within the overall movement and that we are on a financially sound footing.
