About Casanova-Warrenton

The United States Pony Clubs, Inc., 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.

Casanova-Warrenton Pony Club (CWPC) was founded in 1958 in the Casanova and Warrenton Hunt territories in Virginia.  A busy club with an average of 50 active members, CWPC functions and provides programming through volunteers, club sponsors, hired professional instructors, and the support and permission of the United States Pony Club, a national educational organization.

CWPC has a large, active membership across all age groups - under 10 years old; 10—13 years old; 14-17 years old, 18-25 years old and adult members (which includes parents new to horsemanship and those who were in Pony Club as children).  10-20 percent of CWPC members are male, 80+ percent female.

Our members practice traditional riding disciplines, including riding on the flat, over fences and in the open.  Members enjoy competition and sport at all levels in dressage, eventing, fox hunting, show jumping, mounted games and polocrosse.  

CWPC is grateful for its continued partnership with the Great Meadow Foundation, in The Plains, Virginia.   From 2020-2022, CWPC hosted a Schooling Jumpers Show Series at Fleming Arena at the Great Meadow Foundation.  And for many years during the summer season, CWPC volunteers welcomed guests to Twilight Polo every Saturday and to Twilight Jumpers on four Friday evenings.  CWPC members and volunteers have also led polo ponies during pony rides at the Fourth of July celebration at Great Meadow.

Providing this community service helps preserve open space like Great Meadow and also allows CWPC to offer its members a full program of camp, lessons, clinics, ground school and certification testing at a reduced fee.

USPC Pony Clubs and Riding Centers are assigned to one of 41 geographical regions, which are administered by a volunteer Regional Supervisor (RS) and other appointed and elected officers. Regions offer additional activities and opportunities for members and support for the club and center leaders under their administration. Casanova-Warrenton Pony Club is part of the Virginia Region. Visit the region's website for the contact information for the Regional Officers.
