EQUITANA USA has announced that it has partnered with the United States Pony Club to bring interactive and educational content to the October event at the Kentucky Horse Park. The partnership pairs the leading international exhibition for the equine industry with education from the largest equine organization in the world.
“EQUITANA USA is the premier event to attend for anyone in the equine industry, but also for families that love horses,” said Meghan Margewicz, the event’s director. “The Pony Club brings an incredible amount of knowledge to the event to share with horse lovers of all age groups. We’re excited to have them as partners to provide exciting experiences for our attendees.”
The Pony Club will be on-site at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington, Ky., during the event, scheduled for October 1–3. Pony Club will provide interactive fun for the entire family with an exciting display inside the venue’s covered arena. Attendees will learn the ins and outs of horses and ponies from an organization that boasts about 9,000 members in more than 500 clubs and riding centers throughout the United States. Pony Club programming includes more than nine riding disciplines.
As part of the partnership, Pony Club members, along with their family and friends, will enjoy discounted ticket rates along with opportunities to participate in both riding and educational demonstrations during the event.
