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.

Manukau and Auckland Districts have teamed up to provide 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.

To be able to compete at District or Area events riding members must have completed the required number of rallies (see rules).

Manukau and Auckland District Pony Club District Day

This will be held in November and is counted as a rally.  All riders who compete may count this as one mounted rally for the season.  Riders who do not compete may attend in uniform and assist on the day which will count as an unmounted rally by their branch.  District Day offers riders the chance to compete in:

  • Dressage (pairs and individual)
  • Team Games - barrel racing and other options
  • Showjumping for junior and senior riders
