RE: [RC] Pony Club ENDURANCE riding???? - rides2far@xxxxxxxx

. It 
seems to me that they key here is "Pony Club" a 12k "run" for a Pony 
would be endurance wouldn't it

When I was in college I hauled Pony Club horses for years for exta money. Went 
to tons of shows. Most ride TB's or TB crosses *very* few "ponies". Of course, 
if somebody showed up on an Arab they'd talk about what a cute "pony" it was. 
The kid on the photo was on a true "Pony"...but then we had a pony named Comet 
in the SE...no more than 11 hands tall who did 1000 miles of 25 milers with his 
rider bareback. Guess that makes him an ultra-marathoner pony. >g<

My kids did USPC Pony Club for a few years. I brought the only 3 "Ponies" that 
were at our entire camp. The rest were 15 hands and up.
The big difference I would think is that they're apparently not riding with 
sponsors since it sounds like it's purely a Pony Club event. At least in my 
experience, I can't think of any of the moms other than myself who rode so that 
would make for a different sport. Seems to me that they would do better to 
simply run in conjunction with presently sanctioned events and keep their 
points seperately. These kids could ride really well but often weren't used to 
getting out of the ring much if at all.
