“Over the years we have received a lot of interest from the equine community for Pony Club educational material. USPC graduates and members are testaments to the quality and reputation Pony Club education provides. We are excited for this opportunity to reach more equine professionals and educators not currently affiliated with Pony Club.” stated Karol Wilson, USPC Director of Member Services and Regional Administration.No previous Pony Club experience or affiliation is required.
