The Minnesota State Chapter of the National Pony of the Americas Club (MN POAC) is a family-oriented organization dedicated to teaching youth responsibility and sportsmanship through organized equine-related events. Our goal is to gain awareness for the POA breed and to promote classes in shows that showcase breed and performance abilities.
The POA breed is the only equine breed that was founded on the premise of a suitable performance pony for youth. POAC currently enjoys a status of about the third or fourth largest breed registry. In addition to a full slate of youth classes, we also hold an ever growing number of 19 and over classes.
Each year, the MN POAC hosts POA breed shows sanctioned by the national POAC throughout the spring, summer and fall months. While you do not have to be a member of the MN POAC to exhibit at one of our POA shows, you do have to show a registered POA.
The MN POAC got its start in 1961, making 2011 our 50th Anniversary! On this website or at our shows, come see for yourself how the POA has evolved over the last 50 years! Celebrate youth, family, and ponies!!
