The Pony Club is split into 19 Areas, with a number of Branches and Centres in each, across the country. Each Area has an Area Representative who will represent their Branches on The Pony Club Council.


Each Branch covers a geographical area and is organised using the purposes and the rules of The Pony Club.  Every Branch is administered by a voluntary District Commissioner helped by a Committee made up of voluntary members..

Pony Club Branch Membership is open to anyone under 25 years of age. Members should have access to a horse or pony, by ownership or loan, and have the means to transport the horse or pony to and from rallies and events.


In 1998, the Centre Membership scheme was launched for those, without their own pony who ride at riding schools, to become Members and take part in all that The Pony Club has to offer. There are currently around 480 Pony Club Centres spread across the UK. Activities at the Centre are run by the Proprietor and their Coaches.

New Pony Club Centre Membership is open to anyone under 25 years of age who does not own a pony. Members pay an annual subscription and receive instruction at a Pony Club linked Centre, this subscription constitutes Membership of the Club and includes third party insurance.

From January 2016, Centre Plus Membership will also be available for young riders with their own pony who ride at a Pony Club Linked Centre

The UK Pony Club was a founder member of the Euro Pony Club, which was formed in 1990 and has fifteen member nations. Its aims are to promote exchange visits between Members of the various countries, thereby creating friendship and a wider understanding of the individual cultures, languages and background.

There are also affiliated Pony Clubs in 14 overseas countries with over 1873 Branches and a membership exceeding 73,000. They operate in a similar way to the UK Pony Club and have exchange visits and international competitions regularly.
