Riding Center

Adria Fix

Center Administrator

Adria heads Iron Horse Riding Academy, our sister program in Sherwood, where our Pony Club began. Her program focuses on Eventing, Dressage, and Pleasure Riding. It is a small private barn with a laid back and friendly atmosphere!

Amy McCaffrey

Assistant Center Administrator

Amy heads Firefly Training & Lessons at Serenity Eq. Ctr in Canby, a small, family-friendly barn. Amy's focus is on jumping & equitation, starting horses, and dressage. Our programs often attend XC schooling & shows together.

We are excited to be Oregon's first Pony Club Riding Center. Our members benefit from having access to two trainers among their members. Adria and Amy provide joint and individual perspectives, lending their own technical and humorous sides to instruction.

Pony Club is not limited to children; ANY AGE is welcome. Pony Club offers mounted and unmounted meetings two to three times per month, and meetings are not mandatory. Unmounted meetings cover horse management topics and are usually paired with mounted meetings. Mounted meetings are meant to supplement regular riding lessons and are not intended to replace a consistent lesson program with your trainer - you are welcome to join our Riding Center even if you ride with another trainer, regardless of discipline.

Pony Club provides a unique educational opportunity in the horse world. Studying, showing at rallies, and receiving progressive level certifications in Pony Club exhibits strong core values and drive. Pony Club offers extensive knowledge in equestrian sports and horsemanship, focuses on safety, and is a point of pride to be included on college applications and resumés - for you and your horse!

If you wish to gain certifications in riding as an eventer, hunter jumper, dressage rider, or solely in horse management (no riding required), we can help you out. Other tracks, including Western disciplines, are also available. Remember, both adults and children can take part in this exciting adventure.  Please complete the application and get it to me or Adria Fix.  You may contact me or Adria (www.ironhorsera.com) with questions. Follow us on Facebook!

Pony Club Pledge

As a member of the United States Pony Clubs, I stand for the best in sportsmanship as well as in horsemanship. I shall compete for the enjoyment of the game well played and take winning or losing in stride, remembering that without good manners and good temper, sport loses its cause for being. I shall endeavor to maintain the best tradition of the ancient and noble skill of horsemanship, always treating my horse with consideration due a partner.

The United States Pony Club (USPC) is among the largest equestrian organization in the United States, with more than 14,000 members in 600 clubs spread across 49 states, credited with training many current and past Olympic competitors. The USPC Manuals are required reading for every Pony Club Member, and will continue to be required reading into their new editions. Manuals are available at Gallops Saddlery, Powell's Books, and Amazon.
