The International Foxhunting Exchange is an invitational cultural exchange between Pony Club members from Ireland, United States and Great Britain.
The Exchange is all about meeting new people, learning about different cultures, and having a wonderful time with new Pony Club friends. While
the cultural portion of the Exchange is a primary focus, riding and Foxhunting are involved. The Hunting will be across the country, with a variety of hunts, all recognized by the Masters of Foxhounds Association. In addition to hunting, there will be planned trips for sightseeing, kennel tours and many opportunities to socialize.
Team members for all Pony Club International Exchanges are selected through an application process, based on numerous specific questions about their involvement in Pony Club, educational goals, riding experience and Ambassadorship. In addition they submit a video of their riding on the flat and over fences.
Team members come from Pony Clubs all across the country, and many times meet for the first time when they depart for their Exchange. It is an honor to be selected to represent the United States Pony Clubs on an International Exchange Team. Each team member represents their own Pony Club, USPC and the United States as ambassadors.
We are pleased to announce The 2013 International Foxhunting Exchange Team members who will be representing USPC and traveling to Great Britain January 31st – February 12th:
Emily Digney, Mountain Skyline Pony Club
