All HQC participants must complete both the Level One and Two quizzes by September 1, of the year in which they would like to compete.

USEF Pony Jumper Finals

USEF Pony Jumper Championships takes place each summer at the Kentucky Horse Park in conjunction with the United States Pony Finals. The competition is run by USEF and includes a Team Championship and an Individual Championships. Each Zone within USEF is represented, and USEF has graciously allowed USPC to send a team each year. The dates of this year's competition and other information about the competition and qualification process can be found on the USEF website.

To declare your intent to represent USPC, members must submit a declaration form by March 10. Riders must:

  • Be a current member of USPC in good standing.
  • Have a minimum certification of D-3 Eventing or Hunter Seat Equitation.
  • Be a current USEF member.
  • Ensure their pony is recorded with USEF at the time of declaration.

USPC Declaration: To declare your intent to qualify for the USPC team, please complete the declaration form. Submit the form to the Activities Director at the USPC National Office by March 10. A reminder that USPC declared riders will no longer be eligible to compete for their home Zone for that year's Pony Jumper Championship qualifying period.

Financial Terms: Riders are responsible for their own expenses for travel, entry fees, stabling, etc. to the Pony Jumper Championship. However, in the past years, sponsorships and team fundraising have covered some of the team expenses.

Required Documents: Once a team is selected each pony/rider must fill out a USEF entry blank and are then subject to the rules of the Pony Jumper Championship and USPC.
