Welcome to the Gatton Pony Club Webpage. Our club grounds are located at Grantham, in the heart of the Lockyer Valley.
We currently have around 64 members ranging from beginner and leadliner to experienced and competitive riders of all ages. We pride ourselves on being a great place for horse enthusiasts to come and learn new skills.
The club holds rally days on the first Sunday of each month (subject to changes for school holidays/long weekends). We also hold other various other events during the year including our Annual Formal Gymkhana, camps etc. Please visit our events calendar for more details.
If you would like to know more information about how to join, rally days, etc please feel free to email the club or find more genereal ponyclub information eg. rules, guideline etc. on the Pony Club Queensland or Pony Club Australia
A Letter from the Committee...
We welcome all new and renewing members to another exciting pony club year for 2021.
Gatton Pony Club prides itself on being a community based club where all members are encouraged to 'have a go' at all different equestrian disciplines, to gain skills that will help them achieve their goals in their 'chosen' riding pursuit.
Gatton Pony Cub really is a family club and we encourage all members and their families to get involved and be apart of the goals we set as a club, as well as helping in the maintenance of our club and the running of events held through the year.
We are only as good as the volunteers and assistance received, and we thank those who give tirelessly each year to provide opportunities for our members. Remember: If you have a complaint, have you volunteered yet??
10 of our riders achieved Pony Club Certificates last year, and we look forward to building on that this year.
After such a disturbed 2020, we look forward to the running of our Zone 3 Camp hosted by Gatton Pony Club in March, our Annual Formal Gymkhana mid year and our Jumping Equitation and Showjumping event in September.
Good luck for a successful 2021!
