Horse and Pony Club

With the Fayette County Horse and Pony Club, we work on learning the basic terminology of horses, care of horses, safety around horses, nutrition, and equipment. We go on many fun field trips and have guest speakers come to the office to learn all about the horse world!

There is a $20 yearly fee to join the club. With membership, you get the first chance to sign up for field trips and other fun experiences before they fill up! However, membership is not required to come on our fun trips! Please register for each event by calling our office or emailing Cora at cora.rakestraw@uga.edu. See our schedule below.
