LEXINGTON, Ky--The United States Pony Clubs, Inc., has decided to postpone USPC Festival 2020 to July 19-26, 2021.
The triennial event was originally scheduled for July 13-20, 2020, at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington, Kentucky.
Festival has been a beloved tradition for Pony Club since 1983.
Held at the Kentucky Horse Park, the weeklong event combines the best of Pony Club’s educational opportunities with the excitement of Championships competition in a team format.
However, protecting the safety and well-being of Pony Club members, volunteers, staff, supporters, leadership, and the local community must take precedence at this time.
“Pony Club is a resilient, proactive and solution-oriented organization. For these reasons, we are committed to highlighting the positive during these unprecedented times,” said USPC President Ben Duke. “Together we will work to create new opportunities for learning, fun, camaraderie, and connection while we look forward to being safely back in action.”
Pony Club is appreciative of all that our organizers, volunteers, leaders, supporters, and members have invested in planning for Festival.
Preparations are already underway to ensure that USPC Festival will be a memorable celebration for all in 2021.
