Cheryl Allerton sent this photo of Tucker.








"Olivia spent the morning grooming Timmy and they had a nice chat with each other, said Sherry Owens. "Olivia was asked in school what she was thankful for and her answer was, `Timmy'”.

I think ths adorable photo was sent in as a Photo Contest Candid entry but it somehow got misplaced. It's too good not to be shown, and it fits perectly into Kids and Pets.








"I met a great group having fun at Hope Spring Equestrian Therapy Center today in historic Yellow Springs, Pa.," said Ginny Jenkins. "They offer therapeutic horseback riding and special education in a warm and friendly environment."

Horse's name is Maria D and she's a standardbred aged 28 that I've owned for 24 years.

Mark Rodriguez is 13 and has been riding her for almost three years. They do western gaming and Hunter paces.

She may be older than the average horse but she's still the Energizer bunny!

I took the picture after he gave her a 'spa' treatment for his first time at the National Standardbred Show which was held at the Horse Park of NJ Aug. 10-12.

He competed in the western gaming portion and came home with one second and three third place finishes.

When each grandchild of Ami Howard is born, they get a Shetland pony.

Sophie received Smarty Pants and has been riding her since she was 4 years old, and they are now both 11.

They make a great team.

Sophie has moved onto a large pony but still loves to ride Smarty.

She does many things with her but one her favorite things to do is race her in the Shetland steeplechase.

Here's a couple pictures this past month racing at Breyerfest in Kentucky and of her racing her at the Devon Horseshow in Pa.

Janet Ulmer said, "Although this is not my daughter (she is actually the daughter of a friend of mine) she is an amazing rider, and she has a stubborn pony.

He refused everything and made her circle and take each jump a second time.

Of course she was disqualified, but she truly demonstrated AMAZING horsemanship and the skills of a very fine young equestrienne.

She should have been awarded a ribbon for her achievement (despite the pony’s lack).

But they do make an adorable pair! I absolutely loved watching her work with her pony.

This shot was taken at The Buxmont Riding Club Horse Show on June 3rd.

This young lady deserved the tri-color for her talent and perseverance with her pony!"
