The Pony Club International Quiz Exchange – British Columbia, Canada 2017

In autumn 2017 The Canadian Pony Club kindly extended an invitation to host the International Quiz Exchange.  The Quiz Exchange rotates every three years, hosted alternatively between The Canadian and United States Pony Club, with invitations extended to the United Kingdom and Australian Pony Clubs.

The exchange started on the 30th September 2017 in Vancouver, British Columbia, and the group then explored the area in the Lower Mainland with a trip to Vancouver Island.  On October 5th, the group flew to Kelowna and joined the Canadian Pony Club National Quiz.

Our team from the UK came an amazing third place with one of our Members, Victoria Hargreaves from the Chipping Branch taking the individual fourth place, the top three individuals were all Canadian Members.

The format for the International Quiz differs from our traditional format and is a combination of both the National Quiz with written questions and the practical side of Horse and Pony Care.

The four Pony Club Members and one chaperone selected to represent Great Britain were -
Helena Bissex, 23, Lavant House Stables
Georgia Stanton, 18, Silvermere Equestrian Centre
Lucy Stammes, 19, East Essex Branch
Victoria Hargreaves, 20, Chipping Branch
Chaperone: Ruth Walker.
