Club Pony Pals News
Wiggins Estate Trail Launches!
Sleepover Scheduled for Friday

Dear Pony Pals  

What a week around Wiggins! The trail to Wilhelmina Wiggins' estate is now open -- if you have bought a pony at Olson's Horse Farm. When a member rides along Pony Pal trail and reaches the gate to Ms. Wiggins estate, they can now click on it.

snapshot Wiggins Estate If they have a pony from Olson's and have paid their board bill, then away they go....at the Gallop if they want! Yes, there is a fourth gait on that trail now, the gallop. Warning: it is fast. There are three rock wall jumps in a row to try at this new fastest rate. And at the clearing by Ms. Wiggins', there is now a new mini game, Pony Pal Derby. It's a racing game! And it tests members' keyboard skills with famous pony sayings. It will soon be tied into our high score system. Ms. Wiggins' mansion is being built, so watch these pages for news about when it will be ready to open.

And this Friday at 6 pm Eastern standard time, USA, Pam, Anna and Lulu will be at Crandal's barn for a virtual sleepover. Pam will host her famous "20 Questions" game, her mom will give text-only, imaginary lessons and hold shows in another room and Lulu and Anna will be on hand to answer questions and just chat about....ponies!!! Our sleepover will run for its usual 4 hours, please stop by and say hi. Reach our sleepover by going to your personal page and clicking on the white link that says "Live Moderated Chat."

Finally, be sure to stop by Kline's store in downtown Wiggins and open their catalog. Check out all the new colors and styles of shirts and breeches that have just come in. More cabin furnishings are on the way, so watch this newsletter for details.

Thanks to all of our members who have been buying Wiggins Bucks. They are helping us all to make the best, most fun site on the web.

Members chose which drawing will be used for Coloring Contest 14 . Wild Rose's "moving out pony" won her 500 Wiggins bucks and will inspire coloring creativity -- and win some members lots of bucks for their coloring skill!

Hi! Here are some photos of me riding the real - life Tally. She's not my horse, but I rode her in a 1.5 hour ride where we rode into the Australian Karri and Jarrah tree forest. We rode in the forest and through a big paddock full of young bulls (male cattle). The ride was so much fun! The  first photo is of my sister (she rode a pony named Polly), the second one is me on Tally, and the third one is my Dad on Snip-Snap. For the last few minutes, we all trotted for a while and then I had my first canter!!!! And I wasn't on a lunge rein!!! Anyways, thanx for reading this and I hope you guys enjoy the photos!
