2024 USPC Festival Upper-Level Member Showcase Evening To Be Streamed Live and Exclusively on Horse & Country

Horse & Country (H&C), the leading international equestrian sports network, will exclusively livestream the United States Pony Clubs’ (USPC) Upper-Level Member Showcase held during the 2024 USPC Festival from the Rolex Arena at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington, KY, on the evening of July 18, 2024. The USPC Festival Upper-Level Member Showcase will also be available thereafter on demand. Riders participating in the event will be able to purchase clips of their round on H&C+.

The USPC Festival is held for eight days every other year at the Kentucky Horse Park, and more than 2,500 Pony Club members, volunteers, and families participate. The USPC Festival is divided into two parts: Championships and Education. The National Championships are held the first part of the week in eight competitive disciplines, as well as in Gymkhana and Trail, followed by mounted and unmounted clinics and workshops taught by top riders, Pony Club experts, and equine industry professionals.

The celebration of USPC members is highlighted on Thursday evening with the Upper-Level Member Showcase where Championships competitors who have earned a national certification exhibit their talents in the legendary Rolex Arena.

“Further to our long-standing partnership with USPC, we are pleased to be able to livestream this Showcase on H&C+,” said H&C Director of Content Jonathan Rippon. “With their mission of equestrian education, the event fits in perfectly with H&C’s wide breadth of programming, from livestreaming competition to a full slate of Masterclasses, clinics, documentaries, and more.”

“Being able to offer the Upper-Level Member Showcase as a livestreaming event on H&C+ is a great step for USPC in presenting what we offer to a global audience,” said USPC Executive Director Teresa Woods. “As the largest equine educational organization in North America, we hope that this exposure on H&C will help us reach even more potential members who want to learn and have fun with horses.”

Beyond H&C’s extensive sports coverage, both live and on demand, H&C+ members also receive access to more than 1,800 hours of equestrian programming, featuring content from all disciplines, masterclasses and training series, barn tours, rider profiles, and documentaries. With two annual membership options and a pay-per-view offering, H&C+ Freestyle, there are even more ways to access H&C’s vast library of content. Full details on how to join can be found at horseandcountry.tv/select-plan.

Annual membership of H&C+ is only $119.99 as a one-time payment, or there is an option to pay in 12 monthly installments of $13.99. Non-members who wish to watch can choose H&C’s Freestyle option and buy a pass for each event for just $24.99.
