North Hill Pony Club
Check out our branch history
and our typical yearly activities schedule
The North Hill Pony Club calls home the Manitoba Horse Council
Equestrian Center situated in beautiful Bird's Hill Provincial Park,
site of the 1999 Pan Am Games.
North Hill members are very versatile. They participate in
Pony Club activities such as Quiz, Dressage, Show Jumping, and Horse
Trials competitions, as well as other equine sports: Endurance riding,
Natural Horsemanship and Driving. Every year, some of our members
represent Manitoba at the Canadian Pony Club National Competitions.
North Hill parents are also very involved in the daily activities of
Pony Club at the local, regional and national level.
Our instruction program includes riding lessons in the fall and
spring as well as stable management lessons during the winter months.
Lessons are taught by senior members of the club and/or local riding
instructors. Over the years, three members have completed their A level
(Jane Payment, Danae Martin, Robby Norris), one her HA (Lindy Norris),
and many more their B2 level.
2010 Driving Clinic
For more than ten years, North Hill hosted a schooling show that had
grown into a two-day long event. Unfortunately, changes in the
equestrian sport have forced us to cancel our schooling show in 2007.
However, we now host an annual Valentine Bud, Spud and Steak in
Oakbank, typically the Saturday before Valentine's Day. We also host,
with Red River and Quarry Ridge Pony Clubs, the annual Pony Clubs
Spring Classic in Bird's Hill Park in May.
