The 2016 US Pony Jumper National Championships, held as part of the US Pony Finals presented by Collecting Gaits Farm, came to an exciting conclusion on Saturday night with Individual titles up for grabs. Sixteen combinations came back to jump a fourth round over Jasen Shelley's challenging course, with combinations producing their best performances of the week.
The US Pony Jumper National Championships got underway Thursday evening in the Alltech Arena at the Kentucky Horse Park. The riders and their ponies competed in the Welcome Class, which served as Phase I of the Individual Championship. In the class, competitors with clean rounds or equal faults remain equal. Ten of the 32 combinations went clear over Jasen Shelley’s solid course, setting the stage for an exciting championship.
Competition continues at 4:30 p.m. ET Friday with the Team Championship, which will also serve as Phase II of the Individual Championship.
