The United States Pony Club Horse Management Badge Program

Para Equestrian Athletes is honored to offer the United States Pony Club Horse Management Badge Program. The Badge Program’s aim is to allow students to express as much of their basic knowledge of horse care as possible in a practical manner. Individuals of all abilities have an opportunity to enrich their horse management skills and knowledge content. The program is custom tailored to each learning style, ensuring a positive hands on learning experience. The USPC Horsemanship workbook outlines objectives and goals for each badge, making the achievement of the badges a rewarding interactive experience!

As a USPC professional and certified USEF Para Dressage and PATH instructor, I firmly believe that horsemanship starts from the ground up. There is so much more to this sport than putting your foot in the stirrup.

Our popular USPC Horse Management Badge Program is held quarterly throughout the year. Please contact us for registration.
