Welcome to the Racine County Pony Club!

The Racine County Pony Club – also known as RCPC – is an active and vibrant member of the United States Pony Club organization. We have about 50 members, including both Youth members and Horsemasters.

RCPC was chartered in 1967, the club first organized through a lesson program for students of the Prairie School in Racine, with leased horses from a local stable. The active horse community in the Caledonia area worked hard to support the club, anxious to see this education of young people continue and grow. In 2007, with the help of generous donors, the Racine County Pony Club became the first Pony Club in the United States to open its own equestrian center. The Center, 5518 Highway 31 in Racine, is our home base for educational meetings and mounted clinics, our community lesson program and events for the community.

Our club is part of the Lakeshore Region of the USPC. There are 13 clubs in the region, which stretches from the Illinois border in southeast Wisconsin through Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, and our members regularly attend regional clinics, educational events and competition.

Youth members of the club range from youngsters in elementary school to college students, with everything from unrated members getting their first experiences with horses to members with the highest national certifications attainable in the USPC.
