Pony Club is honored to have been selected to present a Quadrille Demonstration during the World Equestrian Games in September at the Kentucky Horse Park. Our exhibitions will be September 28th - October 2nd, during the Dressage and Eventing Portion of the Games.  

With the announcement of this opportunity, more than 150 Pony Club members from all across the country submitted an application to be part of this exclusive team.   From those 150 applications, 17 members were chosen to represent that United States Pony Clubs in front of the multitude of spectators during the World Games.  Only 10 will be credentialed and will ride, but the other 7 will be involved as they are helping with organizing the demonstration with music, costumes, tests and drills.  

The team members and horses will arrive 4 days early to meet and practice,and then move to the Kentucky Horse Park for 4 days of demonstrations, which will be presented once or twice a day.   Team members and horses are coming from Tennessee, Florida, Illinois, New Hampshire, Ohio, New York, South Carolina, California, Connecticut, Indiana, Pennsylvania, Virginia and Michigan.

We hope you will be attending the World Equestrian Games, and will be able to see our Pony Club members in action.
