State Championships are about giving our Pony Club riders the opportunity to challenge themselves against the best riders across the State.
The inclusion of more grades in our State Championships will mean more riders get the opportunity to compete against the best riders, in their grade from across the state and vie for the title of Pony Club Victoria State Champion!
Additional grades at our State events will give more of our riders an opportunity to “strut their stuff” on a State stage! Maybe you could be the State Champion, in your chosen discipline, in every grade as you progress through your Pony Club journey!
Come and join in the fun of a State Championship as a Grade 3 HTR, Grade D Showjumper or Grade 4 Dressage rider and be inspired by our top graded riders at the same event! InterZones Teams Horse Trials will now be a Grade 4-5 Team event ... fantastic fun for all!
More grades, more riders, more fun. Come and join in the festivity of a State event!
