Pony Club Mission:

The United States Pony Clubs, Inc., develops character, leadership, confidence and a sense of community in youth through a program that teaches the care of horses and ponies, riding and mounted sports.

 

We welcome donations of time and skill to the Delmarva Region to continue the US Pony Club mission.  Financial donations also will go a long way to our commitment to the safety, development, and education of our members.  Please contact any of our Delmarva regional officers on the CONTACT US tab to discuss ways your talents can contribute to the Delmarva Region of USPC.   Thank you for your support!

 

Note for Volunteers:  Creating a safe environment for our members with knowledgeable volunteers is of utmost importance to Pony Club.  All members, parents, and volunteers are encouraged to go through the training modules regardless of whether it is required for them or not.

In order to hold certain key leadership positions the individual must first successfully pass a background check.   And depending on the volunteer position within the region, will also be required to take the following courses: 

Member Protection Training: Individuals must successfully review three training modules and pass the corresponding three quizzes indicating their understanding of appropriate and inappropriate behavior around youth, and the appropriate manner in which to report any suspect behavior.

The Heads Up Concussion training module was done in conjunction with the NFL and the CDC Foundation. Once an individual has gone through the module, they will take a quick Pony Club quiz on concussions so that their record will show that they have completed the training.

The It’s Hot Outside training module was done by the CDC Foundation.  Once an individual views the module, they take a quick Pony Club quiz on heat illness so that their Profile will show that they have completed the training.

 

Pony Club Core Values:

Horsemanship with respect to healthcare, nutrition, stable management, handling and riding a mount safely, correctly and with confidence.
