Call for Rider Nominations 2019 Inter Pacific Exchange



PCT is calling for rider nominations for the Inter Pacific Exchange 2019.  This will be held in Hong Kong 30th June to 13th July 2019.


The Inter Pacific Exchange is a biennial event involving Pony Club teams from countries in the Pacific Basin. Teams which have taken part in the past are Australia, Britain, Canada, Far East, Hong Kong, Japan, New Zealand and the USA. The host nation will arrange a series of non-riding social functions, as well as the competitive riding activities. The competitive aspect of the Exchange is the Nations’ Cup Show Jumping, involving teams of riders from each of the participating nations, and a One Day Event. The teams for the ODE are formed by taking one rider from each participating nation to make “scrambled” teams for this competition. The Australian team will be under the direction and supervision of a Team Manager and Team Coach, who will be appointed by Pony Club Australia
