– Gill Rolton Memorial Alumni Award
– Accredited Centre of the Year
Pony Club is not just about riding. It’s about riding well into the future, bringing everyone along for the ride and caring for horses along the way. That’s why we created three national values awards. They are not competitive but are designed to recognise all our members who do extraordinary work and make an impact in the areas of sustainability, inclusion and horse welfare. The Values Awards are open all year.

10,000 Steps Tournament
In April 2020, we held our first 10,000 Steps Tournament and it was so much fun we did it again in 2021. It’s a great way to increase physical activity and connect with other riders outside of rallies/musters! The tournament is open to all PCA Members – riding and non-riding.
In 2020, 332 participants over 33 teams recorded over 124 million steps (see winners in our 2020 10,000 Steps summary).
In 2021, 278 participants over 32 teams recorded almost 90 million steps (see winners in image).
YAC Photo Competition 2020
In 2020, The Pony Club Australia Youth Advisory Council held a photo competition throughout August. The competition included five exciting categories: Best Concentration face – #PCAConcentrationFace, Fancy Dress – #PCAFancyDress, Glow Up – #PCAGlowUp, Portrait/HeadShot – #PCAHeadshot, and Action Shot – #PCAActionShot.
The WINNERS AND FINALISTS were selected from almost 1,000 entries. Special thanks to our judges (Heath Ryan, Cristine Bates, Click ‘n’ Capture Photography, Shane Rose and Bec Hennessy, owner of Bush Pony Media ) and sponsors (Ranvet, Horseland, Heiniger Equine, Bush Pony Media and EQ Saddlery).
