Competitors use experimental design to test
a hypothesis. The subject of research can be anything related to horses and/or Pony
Club. Research results should be presented on a poster board or tri-fold presentation
board and may include samples of materials used in the experiment. The posters
will be displayed at the annual meeting.
There will be two competition categories: oral presentation (competitors
must be present) and visual presentations.
Competitors create an educational or promotional

at the annual meeting on a laptop computer for public viewing.
