Get to Know Us

Sydney's fun and inclusive Pony Club

We are one of Australia’s oldest Pony Clubs extending a welcome and supportive atmosphere to young riders and their parents. Our grounds are in a bush enclave in St Ives, Sydney where we have an Olympic size sand dressage arena, showjumping arena and brilliant cross country course.
We are part of the Pony Club Association of Australia and Zone 23.



Avondale is unique in that we offer two types of membership. Option 1 is to join our Pony club and Option 2 is to become a Grounds member.

Avondale Pony Club also welcomes Active Kids vouchers so don't forget to register!
