        The Nanaimo branch of the Canadian Pony Club was certified in 1973. The objectives of the club were to encourage young people to ride and instruct youths in good horsemanship. The clubs promote high standards in sportmanship, self-discipline and horse care and provide opportunities for members to compete in various standardized events. In the late 1980s, a splinter group formed the Quennell Branch in Cedar.
        Records were found by Nanaimo Community Archives staff during a tour of renovations at Beban House.
        Fonds consists of records relating to the operations and activities of the Nanaimo Pony Club which is part of the B.C. Regional Division.
