Daisy rode Lanes End’s Tee Time and Victoria Colvin’s Ballou in the smalls. Sabrina, showing two smalls, rode Joe Currais’ Calendar Girl and Monarch International’s Cardiff Mardi Gras. Jed rode Isabelle Carlson’s Patchwork Strawberry in the smalls, and Lindsey Belz’s Highland’s Castle and his own pony, Pure Cotton in the mediums. Needless to say, as the older riders begin to age out of the smalls, these newer riders will certainly step up to fill their shoes.

From time to time the Chronicle publishes show reports from junior reporters such as Alexandra Crown. Alex is a 14-year-old who attends eighth grade in New York City. She competes in the medium pony divisions and trains with Suzanne Fisher and Tashua Farm at the Ox Ridge Hunt Club in Darien, CT. During the school year she also rides with Joe Currias and Hunters Landing in Riverdale, N.Y. She runs her own website: www.intheponyring.com.
