External Events

Clevedon Pony Club offers members the opportunity to compete in a wide range of external competitions.  We also take our turn to host some of these competitions at our grounds.

Auckland Manukau Pony Club provides competitions for riders from Clevedon, Beachlands, Totara Park, Meadowbank and Mangere Pony Clubs, including District Day where riders take part in a series of challenges including dressage, showjumping, barrel racing and mounted games. 

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

Riders will be advised of any external competitions suitable for their level of riding, and will be encouraged to participate if they wish to.
