A “ringsteken,” event was held in downtown Ponoka on Saturday, July 25. The riders gathered at the arena and rode down 51 Ave. Photo by Jordie Dwyer.
Ringsteken is a traditional Dutch game where points are awarded for each ring a competitor ‘catches.’
Rings are caught by riders who are either in a carriage or on horseback trotting towards the ring and attempting to put a lance through it.
