LEXINGTON, Ky.--The U.S. Pony Club's 2021 Equine Symposium & Convention, originally scheduled for Jan. 28-31 in St. Louis, Mo., will take place instead as a virtual event.
The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and the potential safety risks to USPC members, leaders, volunteers, and staff attending necessitated the move.
The exact dates for January’s Virtual Equine Symposium & Convention, along with the schedule of sessions and events will be announced in November.
The virtual event will offer a blend of live and on-demand educational opportunities, ensuring participants can conveniently attend based on their personal schedules.
THE NEWLY envisioned Virtual Equine Symposium & Convention, hosted by USPC, will include many of the popular elements which have brought equine enthusiasts together for years: leadership training, equine education, and comradery and connection to equine enthusiasts from around the country.
Registration for the USPC Virtual Equine Symposium & Convention will open in November and offer affordable pricing structures in hopes of making online education available to a broader audience than in-person events offer.
Now members, leader, and friends and family will not need to travel to have Pony Club education at their fingertips.
