Congratulations to Sophia Mazerole who won a beautiful western saddle donated by Schneiders. She was the Overall High Point Rider for the West World and Rocky Mountain Regional, based on selected classes.  See the photo on the RMR & West World page.

More Information About POAs
                       and the Colorado POA Club...


The Colorado POA Club is a nonprofit group with a focus on the youth rider, but family members of all ages can show POAs.

POAs -- Pony Of the Americas -- is a breed that was developed in the 1950s to provide a smaller horse with a great disposition that was a more suitable mount for young riders. POAs have Appaloosa-type coloring and range from 46" to 56" (up to 14 hands) in height.

POAs are extremely versatile, with the patience for rail events, costume, cart, and trail, as well as the speed for reining, jumping, and games. Our shows are uniquely family oriented: children and teens up to age 18 compete in all English and Western events, trail, games, and more; adults compete in halter, in-hand trail, longe line, and some 19 & over classes; and parents help their 6-year-old and younger kids show in leadline classes.

We have POA shows and open shows each summer, and other events are held throughout the year, including equitation clinics, trail rides, and the annual awards banquet.

Feel free to browse our website to find out more about our club. And check out our Schedule page -- we'd love to see you at one of our events!
