Membership

Interested in joining the Globe Derby Pony Club? Here's our Welcome Pack to get you started. We encourage you to download and read it as well as all the information supplied on this website which should answer most of the questions you may have. To apply, fill out our Membership Application and return to the GDPC Committee by email (globederbypc@hotmail.com) or by mail (address on form)

Never been to pony club before? Not sure what it's all about? All of our rallies are open to visitors. There is no cost involved if you would like to attend (without your horse) and see what we can offer. We encourage you to ask questions and chat to other members, so please feel free to join us for our next rally event. If you would like to attend the rally with your horse and participate, you can do so by completing a Day Participation form (available from the Secretary on the day) and pay a $10 fee. You are able to attend up to a maximum of three rallies using the Day participation form (total $30) to come and try pony club and see if it suits you and your horse. Once you have used the three Day Participation allocations, you will need to become a member to attend further rallies.
