Every year, Pony Club holds National Championships. Members qualify for the Championships through participation in regional rallies. Championships are conducted in same manner as rallies with most of the disciplines sending a team of mounted members and an unmounted stable manager. Championships are offered in Dressage, Eventing, Mounted Games, Polocrosse, Quiz, Show Jumping, and Tetrathron.
Every three years, a week long "Festival" is held which includes the USPC National Championships and additional educational opportunities for Pony Club members and their families. The week long Pony Club Festival is held every three years in Lexington, Kentucky, at the Kentucky Horse Park. Championships are held the first three days, followed by four days of clinics and workshops. Festival is open to Pony Club families, with activities planned for all family members. With attendance of over 5,000 members, parents, volunteers and spectators, Festival is a big undertaking and financial support is vital. Support for Festival is offered at different levels. All levels receive the heart felt thanks of the members and their families, as every contribution is greatly appreciated and helps to keep costs low for the competitors. The most recent Festival was held July 18-26, 2011 at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington, KY. The next Festival is planned for 2014.
Championships on its own is a big undertaking requiring many volunteers to put on an event of this size. Any financial support is greatly appreciated.
