|Oaks Equestrian Pony Club Riding Center|
The Oaks Equestrian Pony Club Riding Center began in 2009, modeled after the phenomenally successful British Pony Club Center Program. This club currently has over 400 centers and more than 10,000 members.
The purpose of the Riding Center is to make Pony Club membership available to youth who, traditionally, would not be able to participate, due to lack of ownership of, or access to, a mount. Many of our clubs have addressed this issue on a local basis. The Riding Center Program will address it on a national basis.
The Riding Center Program is designed to work with facilities that currently have a riding lesson program in place. The facility must be able to offer the core disciplines of Pony Club and be able to handle the administrative work involved in running a Pony Club Riding Center. The full Pony Club program, and all of its opportunities, will be offered to those members participating through a Riding Center.

In reviewing fees, please consider that the total cost of the seasonal sessions includes the unique opportunity for each Pony Clubber to essentially "own" their own horse, without the cost of purchasing, boarding, and "maintaining" (in the sense of vet and farrier expenses). The Oaks Equestrian Pony Club Riding Center cover those costs for you! You simply get the benefits of enjoying your horse, as you gain a wonderful Pony Club experience together.
