Long Run Pony Club celebrated our 50th anniversary in 2007, and is open to any child who is interested in increasing their equestrian skills and meeting other horse crazy kids. Our club is located in Anchorage, KY, and is a non-profit organization, managed and organized by parental volunteers.
Long Run Pony Club belongs to the Midsouth Region of the United States Pony Club. Our region consists of 31 clubs and riding centers across seven states.
The United States Pony Club is one of the leading junior equestrian organizations in the world, represented throughout 30 countries! The United States has over 600 individual clubs with more than 12,000 members.
Pony Club provides opportunities for instruction and competition in English riding, horse sports, and horse management for children and young adults up to 25 years of age. The term pony reflects the age of the members, rather than the size of the mount. Horses and ponies of many different breeds, shapes, and sizes are seen in Pony Club activities.
LRPC provides instruction throughout the year, both mounted and unmounted. Our unmounted meetings cover such things as horse health care, tack and equipment use, bitting, grooming, stable management, etc. Mounted meetings provide the members with an opportunity to learn from top instructors who provide lessons in dressage, show jumping, cross country and mounted games.
