Charles Owen is delighted to be sponsoring the US Pony Club Festival as a Silver Stirrups Sponsor for the very first time. This year’s Festival will be held at the Kentucky Horse Park from July 14-21. Charles Owen will be at Festival the entire week supporting the Pony Club members and encouraging safety in the saddle.

The Charles Owen booth will be located in Alltech Arena and will offer Festival attendees the opportunity to be fitted for a new Charles Owen helmet or body protector, have their current helmet checked and ask questions about safety equipment. Visiting the Charles Owen booth also gives Festival Attendees a great chance to view the entire Charles Owen range of products!

Charles Owen Managing Director (and grandson of company founder, Charles Owen), Roy Burek will be hosting two seminars at Festival. On Sunday from 8:00-8:45, Roy will be speaking in Room Five about “What's New in Safety - Helmets & Body Protectors” following immediately at 9:00 he will give a talk entitled “Protecting our Young Riders in the Saddle.” If you aren’t able to make the morning sessions, don’t worry as Roy will be re-presenting both seminars at 3:15 and 4:15.

“Supporting the youth of the equestrian world is so important to Charles Owen,” said Charles Owen Managing Director, Roy Burek. “Partnering with the US Pony Club has given Charles Owen a wonderful opportunity to educate up-and-coming riders about the importance of helmet and body protector safety. Hopefully we will instill safe practices in these young riders as a strong foundation for their long equestrian endeavors.”

In honor of Charles Owen’s Festival Sponsorship, the company is giving away a brand new Charles Owen helmet as well as other great prizes. Pony Club members who correctly answer all of the questions on this helmet safety quiz: will be entered in a drawing for a chance to win!
