IMPORTANT /HEADS UP:   The mounted test will be at Woodside HorsePark this year and then will be alternating locations with Shepard Ranch every other year.  Read more .... Due to new higher minimum number of candidates needed to hold a test, Pony Club Regions will now be working together.  In California, four regions will combine forces:   the mounted testing will rotate between the Woodside Horsepark and Shepard Ranch near Santa Barbara every other year.  The test for all of California is at a Woodside this year.  So if you are thinking of upper level testing C3 and beyond, this is your chance to do so near home!!  This plan is the culmination of polling of our members for interest, followed by a lot of discussions/negotiations at the National Meeting and beyond. 

This year there are more than enough projected and interested candidates to plan for two HA/HB tests in California, one at Midcal and one at Camino Real region.  If the numbers drop quite significantly, the test may be combined and hosted at Shepard Ranch in Santa Inez by Camino Real region. Midcal will host in 2018 and we will alternate sites as needed.  

Dressage tests: candidates will now be able to test at the new national testing site in Bauxite, Arkansas. 
September 1-4.
Application due by June 7
A well schooled upper level dressage horse will be  available to each candidate for the  Sunday/Monday test, with required Get to Know your Horse lessons on Friday /Saturday for a nominal fee.   This year is a pilot and there is more information on the USPC website.  Midcal has three riders planning on going.  Registration is via the USPC site.  Please  register early.
