Pony Breeders of Canada is pleased to announce the development of the All-Canadian Pony Contest. The All-Canadian Pony Contest is the only place where East meets West and all points in between without having to trailer your pony across the nation.
Participants of Pony Breeders of Canada and Pony Breeders of Ontario can nominate their Canadian-bred ponies to the All-Canadian Pony Contest at no extra charge. There are thirteen (13) classes in the 2011 All-Canadian contest – 10 Conformation classes and 3 Performance divisions.
Eligibility in the All-Canadian Pony contest is determined entirely by placings at designated competitions on the approved list. The top 4 ponies in each class at AA level shows, the top 3 at A level competitions, the top 2 at B level shows and the class winners only at C level shows are eligible. The pony must earn a qualifying placing in the open class at one of these designated shows. Placings in restrictive breed, futurity or other specialty classes do not qualify.
In the Performance division ponies with the High Score in Dressage and High Score in Eventing will be rewarded and for Endurance the High Placing/High Mileage ponies will be recognized.
In all classes and divisions, Pony Breeders of Canada judges will award suitable prizes to the owner and to the breeders of each Champion All-Canadian Pony and each Reserve Champion All-Canadian Pony. A reasonable number of Honourable Mentions will also be designated based on the tabulated results.
In addition to the official judges, pony enthusiasts will be able to pit their judging skills against the official judges and send their placings in. The pony enthusiast with the highest judging score when compared with the official results will receive suitable gifts as well.
