The New Vocations Pony Club Challenge is a unique opportunity for United States Pony Clubs members to partner with retired racehorses. The Challenge is designed to showcase the versatility of retired Thoroughbred racehorses and allow Pony Club members an educational tool to enhance their learning experience. Funding for this program is generously provided by the WaterShed Animal Fund and the Right Horse Initiative, which invest in innovative programs with exemplary institutions and individuals to better the lives of companion animals. More information can be found at
