The Big Sky Region was created in in 1986 in the Bitterroot Valley. Today, our region is composed of six pony clubs, one riding center and two Horsemasters groups, with over 100 members between all eight clubs, centers and groups. These clubs, centers and groups can be found in Hamilton, MT; Missoula, MT; Kalispell, MT; Bozeman, MT; Billings, MT; and Moscow, ID.
USPC Core Values (HORSE):
Horsemanship with respect to healthcare, nutrition, stable management, handling and riding a mount safely, correctly and with confidence.
Organized teamwork including cooperation, communication, responsibility, leadership, mentoring, teaching and fostering a supportive yet competitive environment.
Respect for the horse and self through horsemanship; for land through land conservation; and for others through service and teamwork .
Service by providing an opportunity for members, parents, and others to support the Pony Club program locally, regionally and nationally through volunteerism.
Education at an individual pace to achieve personal goals and expand knowledge through teaching others.
Membership is open to all young men and women under the age of 25 interested in horsemanship. Pony Club members may start as early as age 6, if they are able to participate safely in group riding lessons and to benefit from unmounted teaching sessions. Some clubs offer a Junior Pony Club for their youngest members.
