Find the United States Pony Clubs at Equestrian Events This Spring and Summer

The United States Pony Clubs, Inc. (USPC or Pony Club) is headed for a busy spring and summer attending events and celebrating our 70th anniversary. We hope you will visit us and enjoy special Pony Club-related activities at the Defender Kentucky Three-Day Event, Equine Affaire Ohio, and at the Interscholastic Equestrian Association (IEA) National Finals. In addition, we encourage members and alumni to wear their Pony Club pins at these events to show their Pony Club affiliation.

“The United States Pony Clubs places great importance on getting out and about in the equestrian community to meet members and those interested in Pony Club,” said USPC Executive Director Teresa Woods. “We always love meeting our members, talking to Pony Club alumni, and answering questions from anyone who might be interested in the United States Pony Clubs. In addition, USPC is proud to be celebrating 70 years of equine education, and we have exciting activities planned in connection with this special anniversary.”

In addition, Pony Club is sending four teams to compete in the Equestrian Events International (EEI) Mounted Games Invitational, which will take place Thursday and Friday, April 25–26, in the Walnut Arena. All attendees are welcome to come watch this fast-paced Mounted Games action. Mounted Games is one of USPC’s 11 competitive disciplines and features a series of relay-style races on horseback, where the riders must perform different skills, such as picking up objects from the ground while remaining in the saddle, weaving through a series of poles at high speeds, handing items off to teammates without slowing their ponies, and dunking objects into buckets (sometimes at a gallop!).
