Santa Ynez Valley Pony Club Horsemasters Group
The Santa Ynez Valley Pony Club (SYVPC) introduced in 2015 our Horsemasters Group. For those of you not familiar with Pony Club, it is an educational organization, which progressively develops the well-rounded horse person. The United States Pony Club (USPC) is committed to the well-being of the horse, fun, education, and develops teamwork and sportsmanship through fair and friendly competitions. Historically, Pony Club has been available for people 25 years old and under. In 2005, the Horsemasters division was started for people over the age of 25 or age 18 if you have never been in Pony Club.
As a Horsemaster member, you will be able to compete on teams at our Pony Club competitions called rallies. Our Middle California Region, which covers the Central Coast area from the Santa Ynez Valley to the Bay Area, holds competitions in dressage, eventing, quiz, show jumping, and tetrathalon. This year we will also have the opportunity to compete in West Coast Championships at Woodside Horse Park. If you would like to set your goals for the future, every year riders throughout the country compete at The Kentucky Horse Park. The next Pony Club Festival at The Kentucky Horse Park will be held in July 2022.
Our Mid-Cal Region has over 200 active youth and adult members.
