The girls all did a great job! Not mentioned in the article is Ronnie Hodgkinson the 5th member of the team, who was the Stable Manager. In most of the disciplines at Pony Club events, the teams are made up of 3-4 riders and a stable manager. Since competitors at Pony Club events are not allowed to have outside assistance, the Stable Manager is an integral part of the team, who manages team equipment, tack & feed rooms, and is available to help the riders care for their horses and get ready for their inspections throughout the competition.
