If ever there was a more quintessentially American horse breed, it is the Pony of the Americas, which draws from a melting pot of heritage much like the continent it celebrates. The 2014 Pony of the Americas National Congress brings some of the best of the breed to Expo Square, 4145 E. 21st St., in Tulsa for the annual gathering and show of the Pony of the Americas Club. The show begins Thursday, July 10, at Expo Square’s Built Ford Tough Livestock Complex and is expected to include competitions in a variety of rider and show categories, the futurity sale, vendor market and more. The POA National Congress continues through July 18. For more information and a complete show schedule, visit www.poac.org.
