Sage & Sand Pony Club open to new members

It's start-up time again for many of the local associations, and the pony club is looking for members.

It has been a busy year for the Sage & Sand Pony Club! We had many new members this year and we were able to participate in the Santa Parade, the Rodeo Parade, and Quiz. We also had a Pony Club Summer Camp where the riders earned ribbons in presentation, dressage and intermediate hops. It was a fun, action packed time!

The Sage & Sand Pony Club will be taking registrations for the upcoming year. Children from the ages of 7 and up are welcome to join. For more information please contact Marcie Down at 250-826-6957 between 5-9 pm or email at mleedown@yahoo.ca .

The members participate in the Christmas Parade, Rodeo Parade, and will be preparing for Rally, and Quiz as well as a horse show for next year. Riders can earn badges and ribbons. Members not only learn to ride, but through a variety of activities and games also learn how to care for and groom ponies and horses. The focus for all members is loyalty, character and sportsmanship. Pony Club helps children develop through a love of horses and builds long lasting friendships. This is a wonderful way for children to be active and enjoy the great outdoors.

The club would like to thank Sloan Hammond of Gryphon Hollow Farm for all of her hard work, training and dedication to the Sage & Sand Pony Club. Thank you to all who donated bottles for our bottle drive. We continue to accept donations through the bottle depot. Stay tuned for more updates from the club.
