July 16-17 weekend saw another Wild Rose Welsh & Open Pony Show alongside the Futurity &
Performance Stake on Friday, July 15 in Red Deer, Alberta. We welcomed three judges in total:
Shirley Cane, Elizabeth Russell, and Molly Rinedollar. With challenging weather and economic climate, we had lower entries than usual though unlike many shows across the province, and across disciplines we were able to make a go of it and ended up having some good competition.

After her judging assignment, on behalf of the Wild Rose Show, Shirley hosted a clinic on riding, with saddle and bridle fitting, including bits and the importance of proper tooth care. She also answered questions around halter and driving ponies and helped with further fittings.

Molly says, “There were a lot of very nice ponies with loads of potential—assets to the Welsh pony world. You could tell that all of the ponies were examples of well-planned breeding programs. I had a great time at this well organized show with very friendly and receptive exhibitors!”
