Southern Cross Equestrian is home to the Even Tempo Pony Club.  The club was founded by a few of the kids at the barn who wanted to become better riders and horsemen/women.  They have since added a Horse Masters program for adult riders to increase their knowledge and participate in Pony Club rallies.

The mission of Pony Club is to "develop character, leadership, confidence and a sense of community in youth through a program that teaches the care of horses and ponies, riding and mounted sports.” The organization is dedicated to producing well-rounded horsemen and women - and has produced many of the past and current Olympic and International riders.

USPC is unique because its educational programs place equal emphasis on the teaching of riding skills, horse-care fundamentals, and team participation with sportsmanship. From the moment your child joins the Pony Club, until they graduate, members are part of a broad network of activities and educational programs that promote the health and safety of both horse and rider. USPC is dedicated to developing knowledgeable, competent, responsible, and caring horsemen.
