Clevedon Pony Club offers members the opportunity to compete in a wide range of external competitions.

Manukau and Auckland Districts have teamed up in 2019/20 to provide competitions for riders from Clevedon, Beachlands, Totara Park, Meadowbank, Mangere and Whitford Pony Clubs, including District Day where riders take part in a series of challenges including dressage, showjumping and mounted games. 

Our riders also represent the club at external dressage, showjumping, eventing and mounted games competitions.  Read more.
