Club Pony Pals News

Dear Pony Pals

Club Pony Pals is starting a petition to save wild horses. You can read more about it here.

We are holding a virtual barn sleepover on Friday, February 26th from 6 pm to 10 pm Eastern Standard Time. Pam, Anna, Lulu and I will all be online to chat and tell stories. There will be riding lessons every hour for 20 minutes, Pam's games of 20 questions and a room to chat with Anna and Lulu, too. Don't forget to stop by and visit.

As an update, the San Diego Police Department Police Department auction horses went for good prices, thanks to everyone for getting the word out.

In contest news, Coloring Contest #10 voting is completed. The winners are

Hand Colored Catagory

You can download your Coloring Contest #11 entry form, entry deadline is March 12th.

You can now vote for the QWERTY keyboard creativity contest.

The January Story & Poem Contest is open for voting too. There are some great stories and poems, CPP members who entered are talented!

Our new virtual riding lessons are each Tuesday, from 6:30 to 7:30 Eastern Time. Lessons are held in the live moderated chat. This is a great way to work on mentally visualizing your riding -- and they are lots of fun.

Every day hundreds of new members sign up and ask for Pal requests. Take a moment and see who's just signed on recently with our "Pals, Please Page." Our world has some great ways to meet other pals. Click here to learn more. Please help new members feel welcome - send a card to someone who is new!

Our game changes all the time, if you log in and weird things seem to happen, please clear your computer's cache.  See the instructions here to learn how.

Members ask me all the time "how do I earn more bucks?" Anybody who wants more Wiggins bucks is missing out if they don't enter one of our contests! Details are below. We need funny cartoons, they should be in black and white.

This is my real pony, Sparky. I got him from a Lady that owns a breeding farm with a bunch of Quarter horses. She gave us this little, sweet, adorable, pony. I'm very great-full too.  He reminds me of a Welsh mountain pony. This picture of him was taken in the Summer time.... when he was actually white. His real  name is Timex. I don't call him that though. He loves me.... but if you do unnecessary things to him he will buck. He only bucks with boys that don't know how to handle'em. Lisa11  & ayra

Pony Pal Thoughts for the Day

Full of spirit you are, and that's how I like women to be - women and horses and devilish alike they are! Georgette Heyer


To me, horses and freedom are synonymous.
Veryl Goodnight, horsewomen and internationally-acclaimed equine sculptor


The wind of heaven is that which blows between a horse's ears.
Arabian Proverb


A horse loves freedom, and the weariest old work horse will roll on the ground or break into a lumbering gallop when he is turned loose into the open.
Gerald Raferty
