CONTRIBUTION · 9th March 2011
On March 5, 2011, several members of the Terrace branch of the Pony Club attended a Regional Quiz in Quesnel. Attending were: Riley Levebvre, Amy Bjorgaard, Lauren Jensen, Danielle Sexton, Erin Moore, Abby Watson, Jessica Dahl and Marleigh Kaye.
Quizzes are a non-riding event to test theoretical knowledge of horsemanship and various other Pony Club activities. Regional Quiz competitions qualify pony club members to participate in the annual National Quiz. During the Quiz, Pony Club members compete as both individuals and teams.
They participate in three categories; the written test; a visual test (where competitors have to identify strange, obscure or unusual objects of a ‘horsy’ nature) and a variety of competitive games that test horse knowledge such as a Bridle Relay, Horse Charades and Parts of the Horse/Ailments. Each individual's scores also go toward his or her team's total.
The “C” Level team of Riley, Amy and Lauren placed 2nd, while the “D” level team of Danielle, Erin, Abby and Jessica placed 5th overall. Individuals placing for their levels were: Riley (C2) 3rd, Amy (C1) 2nd, Lauren (C) 4th, Danielle (D2) 4th, Abby (D1) 2nd, and Jessica (D) 1st.
