Ride Around the World

Pony Club celebrates 90th Anniversary in style

Be part of THE Pony Club World Record Attempt – its going to be bigger than the Charge of the Light Brigade, bigger than WEG, in fact bigger than any equestrian event ever staged before, will we manage to get it into the Guinness Book of Records? We can, but only with your help and participation.

Wherever you are on 3rd August 2019 make contact with your local Branch or Centre to join in with their activities.  From a huge beach ride, to a parade at the Magic Millions Festival of British Eventing, to covering the Derby Bank at Hickstead in Members spelling a big 90, to re-enactments of the first ever recorded rally, and tea parties galore, the 3rd August is YOUR moment to all join together around the world to celebrate The Pony Club and everything it stands for, Fun, Friends, Horsemanship and so much more.

The parade will be an exciting add on to The Pony Club Showjumping competition run at the Magic Millions Festival of Eventing at Gatcombe on August 3rd 2019, for more information contact Area 9 Pony Club Area representative Pleasance Jewitt on

Andrew Lloyd Webber, husband of our President, Lady Lloyd Webber, a keen equestrian herself having been on the British Senior Eventing team and now a well respected racehorse breeder and owner, has rewritten a piece of his music ‘Paginini Variations’ for us to use as the anthem for this momentous occasion in Pony Club history. This was first written in 1978 as the result of a bet with his brother Julian and combines their talents for rock and classical music. It has been used in ‘The South Bank Show’, ‘School of Rock’ and ‘The Book Tower.’ The music is downloadable by clicking the link below:

Starting at 12 noon with our Branches in New Zealand and travelling around the world like midnight on New Years Eve, the day will finish on the West Coast of America at 12 noon having passed through Branches and Centres across the world.  It truly will be a magnificent moment in the history of The Pony Club and we hope that all Members, Coaches, Officials, Volunteers and past Members will be able to share in it as without all of you there is no Pony Club!

We want to make it a HUGE social media moment so please share your photographs and videos with us. You can send us your files by going to - this link will work on any device (computer, tablet, phone etc) so please send us your memories of this special event!
