What is your favorite thing about Pony Club?
My favorite thing about pony club is how supportive and how kind everyone is. You gain so much knowledge and meet really amazing people along your journey.
What is one thing you would tell younger members first joining Pony Club?
I would tell younger members to never be afraid to ask questions, to not be shy, and to have fun. We are all in this together and help is just a question away.
What is your favorite way to prep for an HM certification?
I love to study flash cards and watch any type of horse preparation videos I can find. Rereading the current level book and highlighting is what I find myself doing a lot.
If you could try out any other discipline or activity, what would it be and why?
I would love to try out vaulting. I used to dance when I was younger and just find it really amazing how they make flipping on top of a horse look easy.
Favorite Pony Club memory:
My favorite memory would definitely have to be getting my C-1 with the other girls at my pony club.
What makes you #PonyClubProud?
My wound care vet box….. My horse is injury prone
Is there anything else you would like to tell us?
I’m excited to hopefully be experience my first ever pony club championship this summer!
