“I’m going to try to qualify and go to 2014 Championships in Kentucky next year.”  Amanda mumbled in the car before she fell asleep on the way home Sunday.  A very tired but happy girl.

The United States Pony Clubs, Inc. (Pony Club) was founded in1954 as a nonprofit national youth organization to teach riding and horsemanship through a formal educational program. Many of the nation’s top equestrians, including many of US Olympic team members and many business professionals, government leaders and career military officers, have roots in Pony Club. There are approximately 10,000 members in 600 clubs and riding centers in 43 regions throughout the country. (www.ponyclub.org.)
