Games Rally Review

Games Rally weekend was full of heartbreaks and triumphs again this year!  Gracie's team came in 1st place for "Horse and Stable Management" (only the top score of all teams receives an award), but 3rd place in the actual games. We had two "rookie ponies" that got so charged up they could not be controlled-one even had to be removed from the games for the safety of the rider!
Gemma's team came in 2nd place for the games! I was very proud of both Gracie and Gemma as they exhibited excellent teamwork, sportsmanship, control, and games strategy. The US Pony Club Games are a very difficult discipline for kids this age but a great way to learn and grow with your horse.  Check out the slide show below the photos!
