    So Easy, our barn used to go to the Pickering Horse and Pony Show every year in April. It was held in a beautiful location with a great outside course. Probably the same place (?)

    is the benefit for the Pony Club ... it used to be at Mrs. Streeters farm on Seven Oaks Road, lately is at the Ludwigs Corner Horse Show Grounds ... the Pickering Hunter Trials is a whole different thing. Put on by the Hunt to show off the field hunters, it is on one of the Detwilers farms off of Rt 113. The fence Star and I are jumping is the last or next to last of a course that is over a mile long, and includes a LONG downhill gallop across a huge field - what a rush! Longer ago, when King showed there, it was at the farm that now belongs to Harry and Marjorie Gill on Green Lane - it was then Josie Taylors place. WOW! [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]

    You get to see the stadium jumping phase of the 1971 National PC Rally - I had my B for about a month before Regional, qualified for the Regional Team (back in those days, the winning Club Team from Regional Rally went to National. Our Club Team went in 1972 to Va. and 1973 to OMAHA - where we won [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img] ) This rally was held on the Firestones Estate in Ohio. I also just learned to drive a truck and trailer, so my mother and I loaded this mare, and my teammates appy stallion in the trailer, and drove for 6 hours. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img] We had a blast back then!

    Jimmy Bonham was Max and Nancy Bonham's son. Jimmy currently lives in Las Vegas and is doing course designs and other things. Max's wife Nancy is currently in a nursing home in Camden, SC suffering from painful arthritis/osteoporosis in her back. Hopefully she will regain enough mobility to return to her home in the hunt country. Max passed away quite some time ago now.

    So sorry to hear that Nancy is laid up. She was at all the big KHP shows this past summer with corgi's and shirt swatches.

    I had not seen her in 20 some years (she had "Blossom" then) and I thought that she looked just great as recently as Sept..

    And I am certainly impressed by SoEasy's release. This pic should go to a George Morris Clinic in PH and see what he says...

    and wonderful auto release, head up and watching, perfect leg position, heels down, etc.

    Hmm - do you still ride like that? [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif[/img] [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif[/img]

    Isn't if funny how back in the early years snow fence was an icon at horse shows? I remember hooking my pony's reins on the snow fence while I ate lunch [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]

    and I have a question!
    This is me, early 80s at a hunter show at our barn in Chester County, PA. The horse I am riding was known as Willy - we raised him from a weanling.
    Does anyone out there recognize him? LOL

    I was thinking that I have no idea about the horse, but the guy in the background sure looks like David Orlando. Then I realized Davey O would be about five then!

    This is me back in the summer of 1973 at Woodstock in Vermont showing one of my Aunt's yearling Connemara ponies in hand...

    I was NOT showing much and was growing like crazy. The patent leather tops on the boots were NOT a fashion statement - they were to make the boots as tall as possible (obviously NOT tall enough)!! The jacket was bought at a tag sale, but it was a lovely color - much more "in" these days than it was back then! My shirt was probably the only thing that was purchased new. I loved it. It was made of a material called Viyella - almost a silky flannely feel. LOL And I monogrammed my own choker. (Yes, I was into monograms even back then [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif[/img] ) And note the hair do! LOLOL Oh well. The filly won everything, so who cares, right?

    Duffy,

    Lovely animal! I can see that those expensive debutante lessons paid off, you have perfected the Vanna stance. I think you should start a new career as a model! Between this picture and the ones I've seen from Middleburg National and Mosby's, You could be the next "new look". Hunter Chic but Model exotic......Ask for the big bucks and don't forget me and maybe a commission....LOL

    our Duffy has that look!

    And I have no guesses on Willy!! It was not all that long ago that he was a top Junior Hunter! And Weatherford is right, we sold him to Derbydown/Louise Serio. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_cool.gif[/img]

    You're sooooo sweet! Awwwww shucks! Merci Beaucoup! [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img]

    The image of me flipping letters, a la Vanna, is just too intimidating, I'm afraid! [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif[/img] But if Monty Hall or whoever makes the call, believe me, you're first on the list for a HUGE commission! [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]
