Pony Club Pledge

As a member of the United States Pony Clubs, Inc., I stand for the best in sportsmanship as well as horsemanship.

I shall compete for the enjoyment of the game well played and take winning or losing in stride, remembering that without good manners and good temper, sport loses its cause for being.

I shall strive at all times to uphold the high ideals of the Pony Club and my country.
