About Oaklands Pony Club

In 2006, Oaklands Pony Club celebrated its 50th Anniversary. The Club is based at 'Sherwood', the home of Oaklands Hunt Club, in Greenvale - opposite the historic Woodlands Park and only a few minutes drive from Tullamarine Airport. Oaklands is one of the largest pony clubs operating in the Pony Club Association of Victoria's Central Zone. 

The Club was founded in 1956 by members of the Oaklands Hunt Club who wanted to encourage their children and those of local landowners to ride. When Melbourne hosted the 1956 Olympic games, the Pentathalon event was held at Oaklands. It was also the home of the Melbourne 3DE from 1957 to its move to Werribee in 1980. Afilliation with the Pony Club Association of Victoria was formalised in 1960.

Oaklands PC has its own Clubhouse at Sherwood. Through its close association with Melbourne Show Jumping Club it has access to first-class show jumping facilities. The Club's recently upgraded cross-country course, which covers beautiful undulating countryside has, in the past, been accredited as a State qualifier by the PCAV. It is also now part of the EFA eventing calendar with Avenal at Oaklands Horse Trials held each September. 
OPC holds monthly rallies and organises a range of equestrian events for its members during the year. Each year the Club runs Horse Trials, a Show Jumping day and makes the facilities at Oaklands available for Central Zone competitions. Members of the Pony Club are able to participate in hunts when they have reached a certain level of ability. They are then treated to a Junior Hunt each year with the Oaklands Hunt Club.
Over the years, many strong friendships have been forged at Oaklands Pony Club through the sport of riding. We make people feel welcome and emphasise working together and supporting each other.
