US Pony Club Scholarship Assistance Available for Instructor Certification Program Workshops

March 30, 2012 ( Lexington , KY) –Thanks to the generosity of the Brennan family, Pony Club Instructors and Upper-Level Members are eligible to receive scholarship assistance to attend Instructor Certification Program Workshops at a greatly reduced cost. The scholarship, funded by the Eleanor Brennan Fund, is intended for those who are regularly teaching Pony Club lessons. Eleanor was a B rated member of the Mountain Skyline Pony Club. As a member of Pony Club, Eleanor earned honors from 1st place at her first regional Quiz Rally, up to the coveted Cavalry Award, which is given to the top placing Pony Club members in any CCI event. At the time, Eleanor was the youngest rider and the only current U.S. Pony Club member to ever complete the Badminton Event in England . Eleanor never forgot her roots and would always give clinics on her visits back to the U.S. Upon her return, she had become a regular and loved Pony Club instructor and examiner, and participated in the 2007 Instructor Certification Program hosted by Pony Club at the Kentucky Horse Park .


Workshops for Instructor Training are designed to educate all levels of instructors to confirm and add to their knowledge base, both theoretical and practical, upon which they will continue to build throughout their teaching lifetime. Several scholarships up to $500 will be awarded in 2012. Please submit the scholarship application and reference forms to be considered for these workshops. The application form is available on the Pony Club website, www.ponyclub.orgunder Opportunities/Grants. Please contact Connie Jehlik, Pony Club’s Director of Instruction at instruction@ponyclub.orgor 859-254-7669, ext. 223, if you have further questions.
