Licensed USPC Riding Center
Immersive Horsemanship and Education
Scots Ridge is home to an official United States Pony Club Center. Riders participate in clinics, camps, lessons, and competitions aligned with internationally recognized Pony Club standards. They have the opportunity to compete in regional and national competitions as individuals and teams.
Our team earned First Place in the Mid-South Regional Show Jumping Rally in 2021 and went on to win the National Championships that year in Lexington, KY.
The United States Pony Club was founded in 1954 on the British model of “promoting sportsmanship, stewardship, and leadership through horsemanship.” The core values of the Pony Club experience are:
Horsemanship with respect to healthcare, nutrition, stable management, handling, and riding a mount safely, correctly and with confidence.
Organized teamwork including cooperation, communication, responsibility, leadership, mentoring, teaching, and fostering a supportive yet competitive environment.
Respect for the horse and self through horsemanship; for land through land conservation, and for others through service and teamwork.
Service by providing an opportunity for members, parents, and others to support the Pony Club program locally, regionally, and nationally through volunteerism.
Education at an individual pace to achieve personal goals and expand knowledge through teaching others.
