The pony club movement in Australia enjoys well-merited recognition as the basic training ground for the growing number of our nation’s equestrians.
The objectives of pony club are:
*To encourage young people to ride and learn to enjoy all kinds of sport connected with horses and riding.
*To provide instruction in riding and horse-master ship and to instill in members the proper care of their animals.
*To promote the highest ideals of sports master ship, citizenship and loyalty, thereby cultivating strength of character and self-discipline.
Park Ridge Pony club has been around since 1969 and moved to its current grounds in 1979. The grounds cover an area of 15.3 hectares and are able to cater for all types of horse events. PRPC grounds are on Logan City Council Land reserved for the use of sporting groups. We are very proud of our grounds and have a very motivated committee whose aim is to get Park Ridge Pony Club at its best. We believe we have one of the best grounds to offer clients for their equestrian events and aim to improve these facilities each year. The grounds are fully fenced, the sand arena also fenced with floodlights for night riding and events and an entrance that says what we are all about. We have managed to achieve this in a short term with a new committee on board since 2012 and have tonnes of plans on the agenda for the club.
