Impressive Bandaging!

Wow!  I was very impressed!  Every one of you did a fabulous job with your stable bandages on Sunday, and wasn't Sunny a patient boy as one foot after another was wrapped and re-wrapped!  Good job all of you; it takes practice, but those were some impressive 'first goes'!  Well done too on your impressive trailer safety knowledge; I promise that I will find a head bumper to show you all sometime soon!
Thank you Alyssa for your time and patience showing the troops how to bandage the Pony Club way!

Did you know??!!

Did you know that if you use the CALENDAR feature on our website, it not only gives you DATES, TIMES and LOCATIONS, but that if you click on the MORE DETAILS feature, it will also give you a map?!  How cool is THAT?
Also, if you join Google (it is FREE), you can not only add your blogs, create your own picasa web album, but you can also set up Blog Alerts so that every time someone blogs on our site, you are sent an email to let you know....way to save time and not have to keep on checking....although, of course, we wish you would!!!
See you tomorrow!

Junior PC will be a recap on Farriers...and trailers.
Unmounted will be all about bandaging and travel safety!

No official games practice this Friday :(

We are all still snowed in and/or scared to ruin driveways or face the muddy gravel!  So, no games practice Friday night.... :(
But, we will be playing SOON!  Believe me....I know how frustrating the kids are finding life right now!  Quiz is great, but we want to ride!

Quiz Updates!

Although I don't have everyone's paperwork yet, all teams have been confirmed! We just need a new name for Ethan's team and I can finish the Club Worksheets!!
Thank you to Lori for figuring out rooms and rides! It looks as if we will be carpooling down at around 3:30pm, although that is still to be finalized, and we will probably only be needing 3 rooms - we will be packing those kids in like sardines! Going to be FUN TIMES!
Can't wait!

Mock Quiz Super Stars!

Great job, one and all! From parent volunteers to (mostly) enthusiastic kids, I think that yesterday was a huge success! From Desiray and Courtney hooking up with their TRPC team mate (one more to meet at Rally!) to Best of Bits showing the power of the 'drop score', I think that it was a good 'all round' learning experience for the kids; and probably the newer parents too!!! It will be a while before I lose the vision of my daughter wearing Bob's pony rug!!!!
Thank you very, very much to all of you who helped so much and worked so hard to pull it together on the day; as ever, we couldn't do it without the team work!
Roll on the Horse Management Seminar in Galena this week and then onto bandaging and trailering the following weekend at our regularly scheduled unmounted meeting!
Our kids ROCK!
