Each year United States Pony Clubs (USPC) 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 Standard Rally. Members compete as part of a team from their region (or on scramble teams) and are judged on riding abilities as well as horse management skills. Every three years USPC Championships is held at the Kentucky Horse Park immediately prior to an educational offering by USPC and called Festival. Visit the USPC website for more general information about Championships.
USPC has introduced new rules regarding qualification for Champs in 2019. There are new categories for qualifying and new designations for rallies as well. Click here to read about the New Rally Formats and Champs Updates beginning in 2019.
After each qualifying rally, provided they have fulfilled all eligibilty criteria set by USPC, those qualifying members will be entered into the USPC website by the VRPC Championship coordinator. Once entered into the USPC website, members will be able to view the disciplines they have qualified for and then can register online via the USPC website.
As of June 5th, 2019, VRPC qualifiers for Stable Managers, Quiz, Dressage and Show Jumping, Eventing (partial) have been entered in the USPC website and therefore members can log into USPC website and register.
