Muskerry Hunt Pony Club is a branch of the Irish Pony Club. We currently have almost seventy members, aged eight to eighteen. We are run by a Committee of parents (fourteen at present), headed by our two D.C.'s Mary O'Riordan and Celine O'Connor.
The Committee usually meets once a month from October to June. An AGM is held in November which all families attend.
We organise training in various equine disciplines e.g. Show Jumping, Cross Country, Dressage, Pony Games, and Road Safety. We also run preparation courses for all IPC tests from D to C+. We organise a show jumping league (Jumps Ahead) in May/June/July and a week long residential camp in July. We also have fun events such as Halloween and Christmas parties, and the occasional outing without ponies, to enable our members to get to know each other.
We enter members individually or in teams for many IPC events e.g. O.D.E.'s, Hunter Trials, Minimus, Tetrathlon, Robbie Bailey and John Ledingham competitions and the IPC Festival.
Muskerry Hunt P.C. and seven other County Cork clubs form Area 5 of the Irish Pony Club.
