International Exchanges

Annually, the United State Pony Clubs Games Committee selects a team to participate in an International Exchange between Great Britain, Canada, the United States, and Australia. The hosting of the exchange is rotated among the countries involved. The exchange fulfills the goals and mission of USPC by providing a horse-related fun and educational experience for Pony Club members. To that end, the emphasis of the three-week tour is a cultural exchange among the teams from the participating countries because it offers a variety of educational experiences unique to the host country. The competition, which takes place between teams from the participating countries at the end of the tour, is secondary to the main purpose of the exchange: making friends and learning about the people, customs, and culture of the host country.

Prince Philip Cup Invitational Challenge 

This is an invitational competition that takes place at the Kentucky Three-Day Event each spring. The top placing teams from the Junior Division at USPC Championships are invited to compete. Prince Philip inaugurated the Cup challenge in 1957 in England. The Prince Philip Cup was brought to the United States in 1985 to promote the advancement of mounted games. Over the last 25 years, the Cup challenge has annually brought the four best United States Pony Club junior teams in the USA to vie for the honor of having their names inscribed on the silver cup.


The President's Cup Invitational

This is an invitational competition that takes place each year. The top placing teams from the Senior Division at USPC Championships are invited to compete. The President's Cup was donated to Pony Club by Mr. Jim Ligon, who is a past President of USPC, former USPC Games Chair, and a steadfast supporter of mounted games.
