Yorba Linda, CA has a thriving Pony Club. We currently have around 12 youth members. We try to keep our numbers between 10-15 so we can participate in more events. Our parents and members are very active and welcoming.
Not all of our members own horses but they receive a lot of exposure to horses. Some participate in the unmounted educational meetings only while most prefer both the unmounted and the mounted lessons. After a period of time, almost all members are matched up to a horse from our local horse community (if they do not own one). In many cases, our members have purchased horses after experiencing the thrill of our club.
As you are probably aware, owning horses is very expensive. We try very hard to keep the costs down. We are a non-profit dedicated to providing a program to any youth that has a desire to learn about horses (this includes riding). We have a lot of committed families that are willing to share horses for various situations.
Our goal for the youth in our program is not only that they learn about horses but also learn valuable life lessons like responsibility, leadership, empathy, and self-esteem. Feel free to come check us out on Monday, Tuesday, or Friday evenings.

"Royal Riders Pony Club supported me in my search for the perfect horse for my family. We felt very prepared having spent a year learning all about horse behavior, health, feeding, care, exercising, saddling, and equipment care during the unmounted club meetings."
