What is “Quiz”?
look -- this is the signup
info for Quiz!!
purpose of Pony Club is to teach children about horsemanship, not just
riding. In order to consider
yourself a good "horse person", you must be familiar with the
guidelines for feeding, shoeing, and care of your pony, plus be able to
recognize illness or signs of improper care on your part.
Pony Club Quiz is a horse-related "quiz bowl" contest designed
to encourage the study of these subjects. Not
only do participants learn what they need to know about horse care, but they
also are exposed to many subjects that are required knowledge in order to attain
"C" and up ratings - fox hunting terminology, rules for Pony Club
Games, blacksmith tools, grooming, etc. If
you have just joined Pony Club, participating in Quiz is the best way to make
friends and learn what this is all about.
2024 competition is being held at Locust Trace AgriScience Center, 3591 Leestown
Rd in Lexington, KY on Saturday March 2.
The cost for the competition will be published when available but will be
not more than in the past which was $110.
Opening night for signups is at our CBPC Annual Meeting in
September so that is the best way to get on the list early and have a say in
what nights the meetings will be held for your child's level. Each team has four
kids, so signing up at the meeting helps to assure a spot on a CBPC-only
team, while later sign-ups may have to go on a mixed team with another
club, depending on the numbers, e.g., if 10 kids sign up for "Novice
D", then the last two will be on a scramble team.
This is a great way to make new friends in other clubs!

A Snack List for each group will be sent out once groups are set.
Note: We recommend that new members who are interested in Quiz
wait to test up to their possible riding level until they have competed at Quiz
once because there is a lot of information to learn at the lower levels -
call me with questions about that before you take your test. We
can discuss the situation to decide what will work best for your child.
if you decide not to compete at Quiz, ALL kids
are encouraged to come to any or all of the meetings - just call for the times
for your ratings.
