Chamounix Stable made it's annual trek to the NW Horse show in May. It's a tradition which all of the Chamounix Students and WTR students look forward to every year. A couple dozen kids spend Saturday bathing horses, cleaning tack and getting show clothes together. Its a herculean effort and thank goodness we don't have to braid manes and tails! Everyone rode out of the arena with ribbons and some championships. We were especially proud of Sheree for finishing her courses despite her recalcitrant mount Jane. Special thanks to volunteer Sue Lankafel for getting the kids ready to show.

Help us make our $50,000 goal by January 1, 2015
Our shortfall is your oppportunity to really help the Work to Ride youth and our ponies. The Interscholastic Arena Polo season is underway and the kids are pumped and practicing hard. The outdoor arena is cold and the winds are whipping at 6:00 pm when the kids come nightly to exercise the polo ponies but their enthusiasm remains steadfast as they contemplate each upcoming game. "When is our next game ?" they say, or "Who is on their team? " or "Do you think we can win? " . The optimism is catchy and the opportunites make what we do so much fun so please donate now.
