Championship Awards

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, held at locations in the East, Central, or West, bring together hundreds of members each year. All Pony Club members must qualify 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.

Pony Club members, their parents, coaches, volunteers, friends, and siblings all have activities to see and do while in attendance. Championships are a time of excitement as friends are made, goals are met, and awards are given. With ten disciplines running over several days and a trade fair with many equine vendors, there is something at Championships for everyone.
