Cairo and USPC

Congratulations to Ania Olesinska and Nathan Shimsher who placed third in the MIX team in Cairo to take home the Bronze Medal.  This was the first medal for US in the new mixed relay event. A special thanks to Coach Jan Olesinski for all of his hard work.

I had the privilege of attending the US Pony Club East Coast Championships in Lexington, VA last week.  Over 50 youth participated in the Tetrathlon event.  I was impressed by the commitment of youth and parents alike. 

One of the great accomplishments of this trip was meeting with USPC President Tom Adams and agreeing on a plan to mutually recognize and support each organization.  USPC will work through the Tetrathlon committee.  We believe this endeavor will be a win-win for both organizations.

The USPC West Coast Championship will be held August 10-16 in Auburn, WA. 

Our Sr. Team departs for the World Championships in London, August 9.
