Welcome to the Santa Fe Pony Club Website.
About the Santa Fe Pony Club
We're a chapter of the United States Pony Club and are now meeting at least once a month in Santa Fe. If you are a kid interested in horses and riding check us out! The United States Pony Club is a national organization (Pony Club itself is international with clubs in the United Kingdom and other European countries) with local clubs in every state and national headquarters at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington, Kentucky.
Children ages 8 and up who join Pony Club learn safe, responsible riding and horse care and take part in organized horse rides and activities with others who share their love of horses. The program is a great way for children to connect with animals and form friendships with other kids who enjoy spending time with horses.
