Welcome to the Fox Valley Pony Club website!

FVPC was established in 2004 and is an active member of the United States Pony Clubs Lakeshore Region.  The youth members of the club participate in mounted and unmounted club meetings, regional rallies, riding clinics, and national events.  Our existence is made possible by our sponsors, members, instructors, and parent support.

The Pledge
