Pony Club is not just for kids anymore!
USPC has developed the Horsemasters Program for Adult Volunteers. The program allows adults the opportunity to learn from the Pony Club curriculum, expanding their own knowledge and skills, whether it be in riding or Horse Management.
USPC is a volunteer driven organization. Clubs are administered by parents and other adult volunteers, and many centers rely on parents and volunteers to help with the program. If you are interested in sharing your time and talents, please contact the clubs and centers in your area to see where you can help!
