Our Clubs

The Fleurieu Horse & Pony Club is a traditional pony club which is affiliated with national and state  Pony Club Associations.

Pony Club is a youth organisation whose aims and objectives include:

  • Encouraging young people to enjoy all kinds of sport and pleasure connected with horses and riding.

  • Providing instruction in riding and horsemanship and instilling in young people a love of their horses, a sense of responsibility and acceptance of the responsibility for the proper care of their animals.

  • Promoting the highest ideals of sportsmanship, citizenship and loyalty, thereby cultivating strength of character and self-discipline. 


The  Yankalilla District Equestrian Club was formed in 2011 to provide an alternative for adult riders or juniors not wishing to participate in external Pony Club events.

A basic club membership option is offered through our partnership with Equestrian Australia, as many riders have no desire to compete outside the club.


In providing a social network for like-minded people within the community we are looking towards growing the sport within our district and also provide inspiration for riders of all ages and abilities.
