Merry Christmas from Renegade Riders

Ole Mother Nature sure has blasted us with some not so nice weather.

Ponoka 4-H Renegade Riders

Ole Mother Nature sure has blasted us with some not so nice weather.  But we managed to keep our spirits up by having our club’s annual Christmas party, which consisted of a potluck supper, a Chinese gift exchange and then we went bowling after.  By judging from all the laughter and joking around, everyone had a lot of fun.

On December 15, we had a full day club ride.  We worked on safety, leading our horses properly, showmanship, turning our horses on their haunches, picking up the correct lead when loping or cantering, and even emergency stops.  By the time our day was done, so were our trusty mounts.  We were all pooped out.

I should also mention that we are also currently selling Belgian Chocolates for our latest fundraiser, which will help us bring in clinicians, Equine Bombproofing Clinic, equine education and more.  So thank you for your support.

Did you know that if you see a horse shivering, it’s not because it’s cold?  It’s because it chooses to shiver to create heat instead of walking around to generate heat.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from all of us to all of you!
