Jovee Pony is sponsoring our pony test of choice class

Jovee Pony Farm has partnered with Equestrian Secretarial Services, Wrangler Jeans, and the Southern States Feed to create the Jovee Pony Championships.   The Championships are held annually at Made In The Shade Dressage Show at the Carolina Horse Park in August. The Championships encompasses both dressage performance and dressage sport horse breeding, divisions. The Championships also includes a Best Over-All Pony Award for both Adults and Junior for those competitors who participate in both the performance and breed divisions. The Jovee Pony Championships are divided into Junior, AA, and Open divisions for the Performance and into Adult and Junior for the Breed. Competitors qualify for the Championships by completing two designated Jovee Pony TOC classes in the Performance Division and one designated Jovee Pony In-Hand class in the Breed Division.

2022 Jovee Pony Championships:

  • All ponies must have a current USEF Pony Measurement Certificate. In the Jovee Pony Breed classes, if the pony is under 3 years of age they must present evidence that (1) sire and/or dam (either or both) are registered with a pony breed or (2) sire and/or dam have valid USEF Pony Measurement Cards.

  • To participate in the Junior Division, rider/handler must provide a DOB showing they are 18 years or younger through the end of the calendar year.

  • To participate as an AA in the Performance Jovee Pony TOC Classes, the rider must hold a current USEF Amateur Card.
