Adult Programs Within the POAC

If it’s competition you crave, the POAC offers Halter, Longeline, Pleasure Driving, JPFC, and the 19 & Over Program to allow opportunities for adults to compete.

The Junior PonyFuturity Classic Program (JPFC) was originally developed for adults to train and show nominated junior ponies to help provide nice well-broke ponies for our youth.  JPFC classes are held throughout the year at local, regional, and classic shows as well as at the International Show.  Each fall, the POA International Futurities are held in conjunction with the POA International Sale.  The Futurity classes offered for ponies ages two, three, and four are Western Pleasure, English Pleasure, and Trail.  Reining is offered for ponies ages three, four, and five.  This program has developed into a highly competitive program where adults can showcase their training and competitive skills.

The 19 and Over Program is a newer program developed for adults of all ages and skills to be able to compete on any age pony.  The 19 and Over classes offered are Western Pleasure, English Pleasure, Trail and Reining.  The addition of this program further fosters the POAC family atmosphere allowing adults to show alongside their youth, as well as a place for youth who have graduated from the breed to be able to continue to show their ponies at POAC approved shows.

POAC is truly a family affair!
