Any donation, no matter the amount, helps Pony Club provide an educational program of horse management and riding to members across the country. Through this programming, our members are granted opportunities to develop leadership skills, character, and confidence, all while working as a team with others and caring for their horses and ponies.

A one-time gift to the USPC Annual Fund supports all areas of Pony Club educational opportunities.

The Annual Fund is one piece of the entire funding puzzle that keeps the organization running. The Annual Fund fills in the gap between what member dues cover and what it costs to serve our members by offering the Pony Club program.

The Annual Fund allows USPC to keep member dues and event fee increases to a minimum, while expanding programming and opportunities.

What does the Annual Fund support?

The following programs are supported by the Annual Fund, although to varying degrees. These resources and programs created by USPC impact Pony Club members and volunteers--from the club/center level to the national level. Therefore donations to the Annual Fund are important for the continuation of these programs and resources, and for the development of new ones.

  • Instructional materials, rulebooks, standards, and lesson plans
  • Leadership training/online education for members, volunteers, and leaders
  • National Testing
  • Collage scholarships for members
