United States Pony Club Riding Center
After years of involvement with Northern Exposure Pony Club and to better serve our riders, Honey Dew Acres LLC was approved as a United States Pony Club Riding Center in 2007. Our Pony Clubbers enjoy mounted and unmounted activities, and fieldtrips in the region. In 2014, we had 16 pony clubbers compete at the US Pony Club National Championships. The dressage team was awarded 1st in Horse Management as well as the prestigious Margot Leithead Award for Excellence. Our two games team finished 2nd and 4th in Horse Management. Last year, we had 6 pony clubbers attend Pony Club East Coast Championships where Elise Franck won the Francis Pitts National Trophy.
Lending Library Our extensive equine lending library has over 150 books and videos.
