Happy New Year EN! There were some highs and lows to 2016, but one die-hard eventing combination decided to end it with a thrilling bang: Abby and her OTTB Hugo earned their C-1 United States Pony Club rating on the very last day of the year! The muck, the cold, and the holiday hustle were no match for a dedicated Pony Clubber, and it’s downright uplifting to see a pair take the next step in their goals. Congrats to Abby and her posse!
