Pony Troupes are groups of kids or adults just like you who want to progress with their horses but also value a team atmosphere. These groups meet regularly, practice together, take lessons, and go on exciting adventures like parades, camping trips, and competitions.
Just like 4h, Pony Club, or Equestrian Team, each Pony Troupe is also part of a larger network. We have had interest in Pony Troupe even from trainers in other countries!
Pony Troupes follow the PonyPros curriculum, which provides a handy road map for students. The PonyPros curriculum acts a standard pathway that has proven to help horses and humans reach their potential and have fun doing it.
One thing that sets Pony Troupe apart is that troupers not only learn how to ride amazingly well, they also learn how to train, opening a whole world of opportunities to them that are not necessarily available to others. troupers are all about series skills and serious fun!
Each team has one or more leaders who do not have to be horsemanship professionals, but are dedicated to positive coaching, continuing education, and helping horses and humans on their journey.
Pony Troupes are community oriented. Strong involvement of parents and community members means that Pony Troupes always have the support they need to be successful.
Because Pony Troupes are an international organization, members also have unprecedented opportunities to learn from, teach, and befriend a huge community of like-minded individuals from across the globe via social networking websites.
In addition to supporting their members in participating in shows and events for any discipline they wish to pursue, Pony Troupes host unique PonyPros flavored competitions and events that can't be found anywhere else.
Talent shows, liberty demonstrations, outreach programs, and multi-discipline shows. If you can dream it, you can do it!

I have been doing a lot of the same things you are just way ahead of me. I feel this is going to help me get there much faster and maybe even with better tools. - P.B.
The second podcast is so very valuable. - J.V.
I am finding everything very interesting and helpful. I did just did a small amount of vaulting with my very timid boy who is 8. It was amazing how he responded. Most fun he has ever had in lessons and he started talking and did not want to quit. - D.B.
My 7-year-old daughter was so worried before she started, and had the biggest grin in the world by the time we finished the lesson! - M.I.
