The Come & Try Membership should be recorded on MyPonyClub, if this individual decides to become a Pony Club Riding Member they can UPGRADE their membership to a full Riding Membership within MyPonyClub. The membership paid to the State Body will then be deducted from the full Riding Member price. This membership should not be used for current Pony Club members. This membership does not entitle the bearer to personal accident protection under the Pony Club insurance policy.

The PCA/PCAV insurance policies clearly state that all who are recorded as members of the Pony Club Association of Victoria Inc are considered to be covered under our Insurance Policies. It is therefore crucial that all reporting of membership is completed promptly to avoid any membership recording anomalies. Riding/Associate/Adult members are eligible to ride on the day if they pay their PCAV Membership Fee and your Pony Club receipts the acceptance of their PCAV membership fee, however they must be updated on the database as soon as possible.
