Each year, Pony Club is proud to offer Championships competitions in eight competitive disciplines, and invitationals in our two newest disciplines.  Held in two locations across the country (except for Festival years), these competitions allow members to compete on regional or scramble teams.  Members showcase their Horse Management abilities and riding skills across the different disciplines on a national stage.

Championships are held across the country in a yearly rotation – East and West one year, East and Central the next, followed by a Festival year, typically held at the Kentucky Horse Park.  Each Championships competition brings together hundreds of members, youth and adult, each year, regardless of location. Teams are formed from members of different clubs and centers throughout our 41 regions. Competing as part of a team teaches members the importance of working together, cooperation, respect for others, and communication.

Pony Club members, their relatives, coaches, friends, and volunteers all have activities to see and do while in attendance. Championships are a time of excitement and education as friends are made, goals are achieved, and awards are earned.  With over seven disciplines running simultaneously over several days, and a trade fair with many equine vendors, there is something at Championships for everyone!

Competitors must submit and pay their entries by the deadlines listed below, after being marked eligible by their regional supervisor.  Any Championships discipline and division you are eligible for will be listed in your Championships competitor page. If you do not see the discipline and division for which you wish to register, please contact your regional supervisor for clarification. USPC has a variety of helpful hints and instructions to make your entry process easier including: written instructions, webinar walkthrough, and Championships Entry FAQ's.
