Hi there!
Just wanted to say I so enjoy reading about the Horse of Delaware Valley all the way out here in Alberta Canada!!
Such charming photos that put a smile on my face😀❤️.
Here’s my wonderful girl Olivia.
She was a starvation case when she was a youngster but now at 6 years old is in amazing shape and as you can see.. very happy.
She’s so great at finding people’s pain on their bodies and also in their hearts. She will put her nose or head where it hurts🥰❤️

Kindest regards
Julie Phillips

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.

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!"

"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.

Here are three pictures of the members of Blue Mountain Pony Club out Christmas Caroling on Dec. 8 at Green Ridge Village in Newville, Pa. Green Ridge is a retirement village and nursing home. Each year, the club members decorate their horses and ponies and wander the village while caroling. The residents love it and even come out with carrots and apples to reward the horses and ponies!

Thanks!

Nancy Moffitt sent in this cute photo of her niece, Avery Walsh, showing this past weekend at the Ride for Ribbons benefit show at Wyndsor Farm.

Avery was the Champion in the Walk/Trot division, with 12 little riders competing, on our pony Falcon Hill.

This show, a part of the Freedom Horse Show Series, raised $5000 for a young mother with breast cancer. It was run and managed by Above the Standard LLC, a hunter/jumper barn in Oxford owned by trainer Ashley Brown.

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!"
