Last Saturday, the newly minted 4-H club , The Wind River Riders, hosted the Shaggy Pony Play Day at the Pinedale Rodeo Grounds. With three classes and 33 riders, the fun continued for most of the day.

Events included a toilet paper ribbon race where pairs of riders put their horses through the paces while being teathered together by a piece of T.P. One false move and the T.P. breaks, forcing the pair out of the contest. The egg and spoon race was just that, albet on horseback and at a trot. Other events were a flag race, barrel racing and pole bending, jumping and a water glass ride, among others.

Wind River Riders leader Shelly Hrubochak said everyone seemed to have a lot of fun, and she was pleased with the turnout.

All around winners at the Shaggy Pony Play Day were: Pee wee winner, Kathryn Konicek, Jayne Thompson, runner up; Junior winner Jessica Belveal, Courtney Amerine runner up; Senior winner, Misty Grimes, Amber Grimes runner up.
