About Mangere Pony Club
Mangere Pony Club riding members generally have their own horse or pony. Overall, Mangere Pony Club is a fun and supportive environment for children who want to own their own horse or pony. We also have a few adult members who are always willing to help the younger ones.
Mangere Pony Club facilitates and encourages the development of riding and horse management skills and achievement of NZPCA certificates by our members. Our members ride in weekly ‘rallies’ during the summer season and we have a mix of riders at all different certificate levels. At each rally members are split up into groups and coached in riding and horse management skills by qualified instructors.
The club runs competitions each season, many of which are open to riders from outside the club. Our first One Day Event each season typically draws entries in excess of 150 competitors. Other events held at the club include show-cross, dressage days and ribbon days. We also have an annual camp (in January) which is always a highlight of the year.
Mangere Pony Club has excellent facilities to help our members develop and grow in their riding (see ‘Facilities’) including two arenas and a full cross country course. Mangere Pony Club provides on-site grazing for our members but not all members graze on site. Non-members can also use our grounds for $20 per combination.
All members must abide by the NZPCA ‘Fair Play Charter’ (see below) at all times.
