Ride Around the World Day

On Saturday 3rd August 2019,there will be a global celebration of The UK Pony Club’s 90th anniversary. This celebration is called “Ride Around The World Day”. This day is an opportunity for Pony Club Members from all over the globe to unite and share our connection to The UK Pony Club and what it means to us all. Everyone is welcome to take part whether riding, competing, joining in a musical ride, grooming or simply spending time with horses and friends.

How can we join in the celebrations?
It is easy to connect with everyone on the planet instantaneously thanks to the power of social media, so we are asking everyone to post and share photos and videos on the 3rd August from your Branch activities by using the hashtag #PonyClubWorldRide on your social media platforms.


  • Head to a local Pony Club competition to support a friend if you are not competing yourself and share your experience through photo or video.
  • Get a ‘Ride Around The World’ Group photo from a hack, fun ride or get-together with your Irish Pony Club friends. Use the hashtag above to share your photo with the world.
  • Past members, we want you to take part too! Why not dig out your Pony Club badge to wear on the day? Don’t forget to share a photo.

By supporting this wonderful celebration, we can join in a global effort to raise the profile of Pony Club, sharing with the world our passion for horses, making fun and friendship opportunities for children and young people in riding, horsemanship and equestrian sports and demonstrating how these friendships remain strong, long after you leave the Pony Club.

We can’t wait to see all of your unique, creative and original posts, photos and videos.
