USPC Championships

Each year United States Pony Clubs (USPC) offers Championship competitions in seven disciplines; Dressage, Eventing, Show Jumping, Games, Polocrosse, Tetrathlon, and Quiz (non-riding, knowledge based competition). Championships generally follow the same format as a Standard Rally. Members compete as part of a team from their region (or on scramble teams) and are judged on riding abilities as well as horse management skills. Every three years USPC Championships is held at the Kentucky Horse Park immediately prior to an educational offering by USPC and called Festival. Visit the USPC website for more general information about Championships.

In 2023, USPC Championships is being held at the Tryon International Equestrian Center (TIEC) in Tryon NC.

Virginia Region Pony Clubs Information About USPC Championships

After each qualifying rally, provided they have fulfilled all eligibilty criteria set by USPC, those qualifying members will be entered into the USPC website by the VRPC Championship coordinator, Michelle Arnold.  Once entered into the USPC website, members will be able to view the disciplines they have qualified for and then can register online via the USPC website and then the VRPC site.
