It’s a great way for pony riders to test their horsemanship knowledge and earn money for their equestrian endeavors. The grant testing is available for juniors competing in pony classes, ages 17 and under. The program consists of a written multiple-choice test on horsemanship with four age groups. The National test will be held at USEF Pony Finals. Each winner at the zone level will receive a $100 grant to be used toward educational or equestrian-related expenses.

Supporting Local Charities As always, the best part of the horse show is that it is proud to support two amazing non-profit organizations in the community: Stray Rescue of St. Louis, an organization dedicated to finding new lives for stray animals of St. Louis, and TREE House of Greater St. Louis, a therapeutic horsemanship center for people with disabilities and their families. Over the last five years, the show has proudly donated over $115,000 to these charities. The horse show strives to improve the lives of both people and animals through these events and the organizations that benefit from them.For more information, visit the website at
