The Old Dominion Hounds Pony Club (ODHPC) is a chapter of the United States Pony Clubs, based in Rappahannock County in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. ODHPC, like the US Pony Club, is a youth organization for promoting sportsmanship, stewardship and leadership through horsemanship.
The ODHPC program develops character, leadership, confidence, and a sense of community in youth through a program that teaches the care of horses and ponies, riding and mounted sports. We have 39 members ranging in age from 4 to 19, four coaches, and countless parent and community volunteers that donate their time and facilities to foster these skills in the youth of Rappahannock and Fauquier counties.
ODHPC members build strong relationships with each other, with their horses and ponies, and with our county, learning to independently manage their teams and horses at home and at competitions. The program consists of weekly lessons, summer camp, and competitive rally team.
