Working Together

January 24, 2014 (Lexington, KY) – The United States Equestrian Federation (USEF) and The United States Pony Clubs, Inc. (USPC) have begun to outline plans to strengthen the current Alliance Partnership between the two organizations. Both organizations acknowledge that establishing an educational alliance partnership will ultimately benefit the sport, especially in advancing the growth of youth initiatives and horsemanship.

Representatives from USPC and USEF have met to broaden their understanding of each organization’s capacities and resources, and to identify immediate opportunities for collaborative ventures and future initiatives. Moving forward, a prominent opportunity to work together will occur with the planning of the 2014 Adequan/FEI North American Junior and Young Rider Championships as well as the Pony Club 2014 Festival, both take place at the Kentucky Horse Park in mid-July.

“Pony Club is a wonderful organization, providing educational programs for equestrians of all ages in the areas of riding skill, horse care, team participation and sportsmanship,” said John Long, USEF CEO. “The USEF is honored and excited to work with Pony Club as the two organizations strive to grow and provide on-ramps to equestrian sport.”

“We can only strengthen the equine industry as a whole by building strong working relationships” stated USPC CEO Kevin Price. “It seems only appropriate that USEF and USPC should be working together. We share the same broad aspiration to promote the safety and welfare of horses and riders, and to encourage interest and participation in equine ownership and equestrian sports. USPC, for past 60 years, has undertaken this effort through its educational programs and services.”

About USEF - The vision of the United States Equestrian Federation® is to provide leadership for equestrian sport in the United States of America by promoting the pursuit of excellence from the grassroots to the Olympic Games, based on a foundation of fair, safe competition and the welfare of its human and equine athletes. www.usef.org.

About Pony Club - The United States Pony Clubs, Inc. was founded in 1954 as a nonprofit national youth organization to teach riding and horsemanship through a formal educational program. There are approximately 10,000 Pony Club members in over 600 clubs and riding centers throughout the country. Many of the nation’s top equestrians, including several of our Olympic team members, business professionals, government leaders and career military officers, have roots in Pony Club. USPC also offers educational opportunities to over 500 adult members in its Horsemasters Program. www.ponyclub.org
