Do You Know the Answer?

April 3, 2013 (Lexington, KY) –2013 will mark the first ever Quiz Invitational hosted by The United States Pony Clubs, Inc., and YOU are invited! All equine organizations are encouraged to send individual youth members or teams of up to four to compete in the USPC Quiz Invitational held in conjunction with Pony Club’s Championships East in Lexington, VA July 26-28 or travel to Kansas City, MO for Championships Midwest August 6-11. USPC Quiz Competition consists of five phases designed to test each competitor’s equine knowledge in both the classroom and the barn.

The United States Pony Clubs, Inc., is committed to teaching horse management skills and would like to make opportunities available to other equine organizations interested in highlighting those skills in their youth members. "This Quiz Invitational is just a warm up for our future plans,” states Wayne Quarles, Activities Services and Events Director for The United States Pony Clubs. "In 2014 we will launch the first USPC Quiz Challenge, July 13-19, during USPC Festival. The USPC Quiz Challenge will be an International test of equine knowledge and management skills offered to qualified youth interested in testing their knowledge against the best and brightest.” Visit the Quiz Rulebook on the Pony Club website www.ponyclub.org for competition information, recommended resources and a sample study guide.

It is time to recognize young equestrians for not only riding accolades but also their horse care and management knowledge. The United States Pony Club, Inc., is pleased to offer competition through both the 2013 USPC Quiz Invitational and the 2014 USPC Quiz Challenge that will showcase young individuals who excel at caring for their equine counterparts. Individual competitors or representatives from equine organizations interested in competing should contact Wayne Quarles activities@ponyclub.org 859-254-7669.
