Tonite is a special Saturday Night Lights with extra fun for kids courtesy of the awesome US Pony Club.
This from their site:
The 2016 United States Pony Club East Championships will be held at Tryon International Equestrian Center (TIEC) from Wednesday, July 27th to Sunday, July 31st. This will be the first sanctioned USPC event hosted at TIEC and will welcome competitors and their families to Mill Spring, NC, for a weeklong celebratory event.
What Are the USPC East Championships?
Each year Pony Club 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 Qualifying Rally. Members compete as part of a team and are judged on riding abilities as well as horse management skills.
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 seven disciplines running over several days and a trade fair with many equine vendors, there is something at Championships for everyone.
