So Cal Region Pony Club sent 24 competitors (both kids and adults) to represent our region. We had participants in several different disciplines: Quiz (a competition solely based on equine knowledge challenges), Dressage, Western Dressage and Show Jumping.
To earn their scores, these hard working equestrians were judged on both riding and horsemanship skills throughout the whole competition. During the mounted disciplines they compete as a team of 3-4 riders and 1 stable manager that helps lead their team to success.
Here are the overall Results that So Cal Region Pony Club Members brought home!
There are approximately 10,000 Pony Club members in 600 clubs and centers throughout the USA. Along with an emphasis on helping its members learn to ride and care for horses, Pony Club promotes teamwork, a sense of responsibility, safety, good moral judgment and self-confidence.
