Pony Club was one of the organizations I was involved with as a child and I have a ton of great memories. Not only does Pony Club give horse enthusiasts a chance to fellowship, but it also teaches horsemanship, stable management, teamwork, and, most of all, work ethic and responsibility! I'm proud to still be involved with Pony Club intermittently as an adult through their Horse Masters program.

Gator Bayou Pony Club is our local club for NWLA and it's based at Holly Hill in Benton, LA. But like with any organization, it takes money to be able to allow these young adults to learn and grow. That's where you come in. If you have a horse, consider entering. If you have kids, bring them out! Let them see all the horses and ponies, spend a day in the sunshine, check out the gorgeous Holly Hill Equestrian Center facility, support the concession stand, or consider making a donation!
