2021 USPC Festival
The week-long USPC Festival is held every three years at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington, KY. More than 3,000 Pony Club members, volunteers, and families participate. USPC Festival is divided up into two parts: Championships and Education. The National Championships are held the first part of the week. Followed by mounted and unmounted clinics and workshops taught by Pony Club graduates, Olympians, and equine industry professionals.
2021 USPC Championships
Each year Pony Club offers Championship competitions in seven disciplines; Dressage, Eventing, Show Jumping, Games, Polocrosse, Tetrathlon, and Quiz (non-riding, knowledge based competition). Championships generally follow the same format as a Standard Rally. Members compete as part of a team and are judged on riding abilities as well as horse management skills.
Championships, held at locations in the East, Central, or West, bring together hundreds of members each year. All Pony Club Members must become eligible to compete at USPC Championships. Championships teams are formed with members from different clubs and centers throughout each Region. Competing as part of a team teaches members the importance of working together, cooperation, respect for others, and communication. This allows all Pony Club Members to have a positive experience at Championships, creating life-long friendships.
