State Council of PCAV have approved Adult Riders to be members of Pony Club, after a probationary period of two years it was approved as a permanent Membership Category in February 2014.
A Club must approve at a meeting to admit Adults to their club, and then apply in writing on the appropriate form to PCAV requesting this change be made to their membership.
Adults have a separate membership form to complete and sign for their club membership; detailing the special considerations governing this membership category.
Clubs can determine themselves how the category will function in their club - it might mean that Parents can ride while their children are being instructed, or the club might organize separate rallies. Or that adults can use the club grounds and facilities out of rally hours. Or something else, provided it does not contravene PCAV rules.
Under current PCAV Rules Adults cannot compete at Zone or State events, nor be formally graded.
