FAVOURITE MEMORIES YOU HAVE OF OF PONY CLUB

REALLY???????? ABC rally in Kelowna. Neil Figgis dared me to jump my horse with only a halter and lead rope on, no boots, no helmet, no saddle. We jumped in and out of the ring several times (at dusk) until Jean Simpson, Dorothy Kirby and Jody Sloper caught us. I had bright pink hair at the time. As we were both competing preliminary level it was tough to eliminate us as there were only 3 or 4 competing at the time.
