Youth Spotlight: Black Oaks Pony Club

Central California club and its members represent the future of national organization.
Black Oaks Pony Club has a long history in the Paso Robles area and it also reflects the future of the U.S. Pony Club’s effort to expand its membership base. Eventing has long been the competitive discipline most associated with Pony Club, but the organization now offers “certifications,” formerly called “ratings,” in show jumping, hunter equitation, dressage and even western.

An open letter on the status of next year’s selection process for the NAJYRC. 
by Karen Healey
It was with great surprise, dismay and confusion that we learned of the USHJA’s BOD decision to ratify the recommendation of the Jumper Working Group to do away with Zone 10’s selection process for the North American Junior Young Riders Championships. (Editor’s Note: Read the Gallop, page 10, for the latest on this subject.)

A Young Rider’s Reflections

Leaving the sport spurs realizations about life with and without horses.
by Sydney Callaway

I have not sat on a horse since December of 2016. As I am writing this, it is June 2, 2017. That is seven months, seven months, of not riding a horse. I took one month off of riding in December of 2014 while studying abroad in Paris, and still snuck away to steal a few hours atop a horse.
