A pocket of paradise in a busy urban landscape

Meadowbank Pony Club is a friendly, inner city pony club located in Meadowbank, Auckland. We have been operating since 1968 and lease approx 100 acres of land from Transit NZ and the Auckland City Council. We graze 25 – 45 horses per year and have about 40 member families. Together parents and children voluntarily run this non-profit working city farm. We welcome enquiries from potential new members or horse owners interested in grazing. We also organise pony parties for those budding young horse lovers.

Meadowbank Pony Club is active in all facets of the local community

Whilst primarily a pony club for those under 25, the MPC development program includes leadership, mentoring, organisation and safety skills. Most of our members are also involved in other sports or community clubs. Several represent their schools in equestrian teams and also undertake various development endeavours, such as the Duke of Edinburgh Awards.

Meadowbank Pony Club supports community needs programs, including SPCA and local schools. Members, families and friends support local businesses in our community (particularly MPC sponsors).

Birthday parties with pony rides

Meadowbank Pony Club is delighted to be able to offer 3 hour birthday parties with one hour worth of pony rides (the children are led around one of our arenas) and full use of our clubhouse facilities. pony-parties

Pony parties are suitable for a maximum of 12 children, aged between 4-11 years old. They are run during the summer season only, due to better weather conditions.

Fees are $300. A $50 cash bond is required to confirm the booking and to ensure the clubhouse is left in a clean and tidy state after the party. Pony party fees help with the upkeep of this beautiful inner-city pony club and working farm. For more information email parties@mpc.kiwi.nz.
