Pony Club holds 2nd Annual Stick Horse Races at Carolina Cup
Rembert–The 2nd Annual Palmetto Pony Club Stick Horse Races were held at The Carolina Cup at Springdale Race Course on Saturday, March 30th. It was a beautiful day for fast horses, beautiful dresses and unique hats. The Palmetto Pony Club members and parents worked diligently to provide a fun, family activity for those attending The Cup. The stick horses available for purchase were one of a kind, hand crafted artistic creations and there was a tremendous selection of raffle items available. The post time for the races was 3 p.m. There were six races for children and adults. Ribbons were presented first through sixth place. Thanks to the help of our pony club supporters, our event was a huge success! All proceeds benefit the Palmetto Pony Club equine educational programs.
