Canadian Partner Shows

We partner with Equestrian Canada Bronze, Silver, and Gold shows around Canada to offer our Partner Show Program. These shows will offer at least one 'pony only' class, but possibly more. All scores in 'pony only' classes at our Partner Shows will automatically be entered in our Year-End Awards Program. You do not need to be a member to compete in Partner Shows. We will award a Champion Pony based on their percentage score plus a degree of difficulty based on the test ridden.

Become a Partner Show


The National Dressage Pony Cup was founded to give ponies an opportunity to compete against one another at a show designed to showcase the exceptional talent, training, and commitment of ponies along with their owners, breeders, trainers, and riders in the sport of dressage.  NDPC Partner Show allows any Equestrian Canada Bronze, Silver, or Gold show to be a part of NDPC, allowing more ponies a place to perform and shine in the dressage arena.

Become a Series

NDPC offers Partner Shows the opportunity to create their own Series Championship from three or more Partner Shows!

When a Series is offered, competitors must attend a minimum number of shows in the series to be eligible for awards.  The Series Champion ribbons and certificates will be sent by the NDPC office after the completion of the last show in the series.

Series Champion and Series Reserve Champion awards will be presented to the top two qualifying riders with the highest average scores, with potential for separate Open, AA, YR, and Jr  Champions and Reserve Champions if enough riders are eligible. To determine the results, the weighted scores from each show will be averaged.

To sign up your shows as a Series, simply purchase the "Partner Show Series" along with three or more shows when signing up online, or mark the area on the physical form. After registration we will send you a prize list document that lists the shows in the series, their dates, and information on how many shows competitors must attend to be eligible. A PDF version of this document will also be available on our Canadian Partner Show Series page (Coming Soon) for easy reference.
