Gladstone, N.J. – May 16, 2017 – The United States Equestrian Team (USET) Foundation is excited to announce its first-ever fundraising contest designed to help increase awareness for equestrian sports and raise funds for the U.S. high performance equestrian programs. The PonyUp! contest allows you to spread the word about high performance equestrian sports, while also giving you the chance to win an incredible prize package!
As the top fundraiser of the PonyUp! campaign and contest, you can create the Breyer® horse model of your dreams! Creating a custom Breyer® model is an extremely rare opportunity — with a value of $2,500! Plus, you’ll also win a framed Rio Olympic poster signed by the entire 2016 U.S. Olympic and Paralympic equestrian teams!
Join the team and help the USET Foundation increase awareness for equestrian sports by raising funds through your network of family and friends. Every dollar you raise will go directly to supporting our U.S. equestrian teams and will be put to immediate use.
The USET Foundation is a vital part of equestrian sport in the United States. For more than 65 years, equestrian athletes have represented the United States in international competition, bringing home medals that have clearly established the United States as among the world’s equestrian elite. However, the costs of fielding international teams are enormous. Training, coaching and transporting of human and equine athletes around the world in order to compete against the sport’s best athletes is made possible thanks to contributions made to the USET Foundation.
Young athletes are the future of the sport. The funds raised in the PonyUp! contest will help introduce and develop the next generation of high performance equestrian athletes. Share the excitement and thrill of equestrian sports with others by starting your own fundraiser right now! You can start your own team or support a family member or friend by joining their team.

In addition, the USET Foundation will be hosting Breyer®, the maker of the world’s finest model horses, for another exciting Pony Up! Festival at their headquarters in Gladstone, New Jersey, Saturday, June 17. This fun, hands-on and family-oriented festival will feature some of the real local horses that inspired the Breyer® models.
The USET Foundation is a nonprofit organization that supports the competition, training, coaching, travel and educational needs of America’s elite and developing international and high performance horses and athletes in partnership with US Equestrian.
