Pony Club is a national organisation, supporting and encouraging children, youth and young adults with horsemastership and horsemanship. We encourage fairplay and competition. The NZPCA has approx 8800 members, which makes it one of the largest youth sporting organisations in New Zealand.
Quote from Chloe Akers – Horse of the Year Show Hunter Champion and New Zealand Pony Club Member
“Show hunter is a great discipline for young riders as it requires precision, balance, rhythm, correct leads and good jumping form. The courses are set at the correct striding with safe jumps helping to promote an encouraging jump experience for young riders who aspire to complete the ‘perfect’ round.”
Manawatu Show Hunter Committee
The Manawatu Pony Club Show Hunter Committee was established in June 2006, primarily to develop a competitive show hunter event for pony club riders. By taking up this challenge, we have now established the right to hold this event within our region annually.
