Pony Club Alumni Take Home Top Honors at the 2018 Land Rover Kentucky Three-Day Event

May 3, 2018 (Lexington, KY) —
The 2018 Land Rover Kentucky Three-Day Event was a great year for Pony Club alumni. Oliver Townend, who got his start in British Pony Club, made the trip across the pond to take home the top honors of the weekend.  USPC is proud that over half of the pairs that completed the event are Pony Club Alumni from all over the world.  Marilyn Little (Fredrick Pony Club) was the highest placed U.S. rider winning the Land Rover/USEF CCI4* Eventing National Championship.  USPC is very proud of all alumni that competed this year, and wish them the best of luck in future events.
