The Great Lakes Region Pony Club encompasses 16 clubs and riding centers in the lower peninsula of Michigan, northern Indiana and northern Ohio areas with more than 150 active Pony Club members.
The purpose of the local club is to instruct and provide opportunities for beginning (D-level) members. As club members advance in their riding and horse management skills, they often exceed the level of the local knowledge base. This is where the region comes in. The Great Lakes region is dedicated to providing opportunities for education and certification preparation to the more advanced (C-level and higher) club members.
The region hosts certification testings for national certifications, and assists with training volunteers to take on the roles of examiners, instructors, and club level leaders.
Together the clubs in the region host regional rallies where members have the opportunity to show off their skills and knowledge in team-based competitions. During these rallies, members may be able to qualify for Championships, and represent Great Lakes on a national level.
