USA Equestrian is pleased to congratulate the United States Pony Club Pony Jumper Team Members for their extraordinary performances at the 2002 USA National Pony Jumper Championships presented by Salamander Farm. The USPC sent a team of four pony/rider combinations and one alternate for the first time to the USA National Pony Jumper Championships, August 6-8, 2002. The Team members were Kate Marcotte, Krista Lynn Innerst, Wilhemina Horzepa, Kathryn Fogerty, and Jill Hubbuch as the alternate. Richard Lamb and Linda Allen were the Co-Chef d' Equipe's. The USPC Team members were chosen by a USPC selection committee, which reviewed videos, and competitions, which demonstrated the members' talent and ability.

The first phase of the individual round began with a field of 35, on Tuesday, August 6. Kate Marcotte, riding Indigo, finished 4th with a clean round and a time of 57.361, Krista Lynn Innerst, riding Rainbow Bright, finished 6th with a clean round and a time of 61.203, and Wilhemina Horzepa finished 8th with a clean round and a time of 64.821.

Team Competition was held Wednesday, August 7, 2002. The USPC went head to head with nine other teams and finished 5th overall. The second round of the Individual Phase was held Thursday, August 8, 2002. In a field of 33, Krista Lynn Innerst and Kate Marcotte had double clean rounds, which would have qualified them to ride off for the Gold Medal. USPC members were not eligible to compete for the USOC Junior Olympic Medals as they qualified under different criteria then the USA Equestrian Team members.

USA Equestrian was proud to have the USPC Team Members participate in this year's event and would like to congratulate each team member for their great success at the 2002 USA National Pony Jumper Championships.
