2009 Pony Finals Bound

Unlike at a typical show, each competitor can only show one pony in each division, and the entered rider is the only person who may school the pony throughout the week.

The pair was fresh off of their best young horse victory at the Devon Horse Show (Pa.) on May 28 (June 12, p. 44), and they’d earned their first best young horse title at Keswick (Va.) earlier in May.
