12 of the Most Adorable Knees From 2018 Pony Finals

If you picture a woolly wild puff with mane going everywhere when you think of the word “pony,” be prepared to have all of your preconceived notions blown out of the water.

USEF Pony Finals is a rite of passage for young equestrians at the top of pony sport, competing large and small ponies in equitation, hunters and jumpers plus numerous other classes: the best of the best in the pony world meet each year in prestigious competition. As the only event of its kind in the nation, Pony Finals is truly the epitome of pony competition, showcasing the pony as an incredible athlete and putting the spotlight on what could be the next generation of riders coming up through the ranks.

Plus, those ponies are just SO DARN CUTE. We’ve showcased a few of the best sets of knees over fences from last week’s Pony Finals below. Looking for more serious, in-depth coverage? Check out our sister site Jumper Nation for everything Pony Finals.

We are beaming with pride this Monday morning at HHOMS!! Lourdes Low competed in the Kentucky Classic and US Pony Finals in Lexington with her pony, Woody. She won the USEF Pony Medal at the Kentucky Classic, qualifying her for the Pony Medal of 2019. Dr. Low loves the horse shows and has made this his hobby because he no longer has time to golf ?. Dr. Low’s wife, Shelley, shared these beautiful photos with us as well as the interview Lourdes had regarding her win. Congratulations Low family and Lourdes!!
