About Coatesville Pony Club
Pony Club was founded in the UK in 1928. It is club for all ages who are interested in riding and horses. The late Dorothy Campbell founded the NZ Pony Club Association in 1946.
Coatesville Pony Club was established on the 12th May 1974 with Mr. Jack McGregor as the first President. Many of the early members still live locally within the area. The first rally was held on 11th August 1974 and attended by 21 children and 7 seniors who enrolled and paid the subscription of just $5 for an individual and $14 for a family.
40 years on, Coatesville Pony Club has grown to be one of the largest Pony Clubs in the Waitemata district and the second oldest Pony Club in the district.
Coatesville Pony Club has a thriving membership base that starts with junior members as young as 5 and now stretches well beyond the 25 year old senior range to a strong adult ride club that caters for all levels.
Members of Coatesville Pony Club can enjoy the expansive club grounds afforded by a lease on the part of the Coatesville Recreation Reserve and access to other public areas of the reserve as well as exclusive member use of two all weather arenas and extensive jumping facilities including an exhilarating cross country course that makes excellent use of this unique natural setting.
Coatesville Pony Club welcomes new members and businesses wishing to become part of Coatesville's largest community club.
Message from the president
Welcome to Coatesville Pony Club. Est 1975
Coatesville pony club became an integral part of my life when my daughter joined at age 5 in 2003, we both have been members ever since then, and for myself part of the committee. Being part of pony club is having the opportunity to meet other riders of the same age and learning to enjoy having fun with you pony, and you get the chance to improve your riding and horsemanship and compete in teams for your club, district and area. We have wonderful coaches who are here to help you navigate the partnership between you and your equine friend, and endeavor to provide you with a stimulating but safe environment for this journey.
Our Vision for Coatesville Pony Club
To continue to be a safe, nurturing place for the next generation of riders to come through to have fun and learn.
