Why do kids love growing up in Pony Club?

Take it from one of our members!

I’ve met a lot of friends through Pony Club. I’ve really enjoyed getting to see it from both sides, being the little kid hanging out with and learning from the big kids and, now, being the big kid and mentoring all the little kids.
