Ponies to Podium Donor Program


At the Desert International Horse Park, the height of the jump does not determine the importance of the achievement. Whether you’re an adult amateur riding a “Puddle Jumper” class (0.65m), a pony rider navigating a cross-rail class, or an up-and- coming professional making your Grand Prix debut, we strive to make your DIHP experience memorable. We believe accomplishments are never bound by height restrictions.

We also recognize the value of providing opportunities for individuals and organizations to supporting athletic achievements across all levels of sport. You need not be a corporate-level sponsor to show your support of equestrian athletes: welcome to our Ponies-to-Podium (P2P) Donor Program.

Ask most top-level riders and they’ll vividly recall their “firsts”: first show, first ribbon, first championship award.
Our Ponies-to-Podium (P2P) program focuses on riders competing up to a maximum height of 2’6″ or 0.85m. Many riders at this level, regardless of their age, are making their show ring debut, and this represents a huge achievement in and of itself.

As a P2P donor, your support helps to create long-lasting memories for riders across the continuum of sport development. Whether you support a division at one show or an entire circuit, or a single specialty class or event, your contribution goes a long way to recognizing these amazing athletes
