Introducing this week’s Member of the Week, Junior Rowyn Biddle.
“With first place all but locked in, Junior Rowyn Biddle, age 9, gets thrown by her trusted (at the time) pony DURING THE SOUNDNESS TROT! At first she gets up and dusts herself off…then walks her pony in. She whimpers a little but nothing too big. Later she finds out she was in first place but now must be disqualified…fall of horse or rider = automatic DQ. The sobs come back, but just for a little while.
After the new first place is awarded to the next highest score junior I heard Rowyn say to her Mom….”It’s ok Mom, she deserved it. She must have trained harder than me.”
ACTHA sportsmanship…from the mouth of babes.”
