Report from the 2nd Annual Snowball Series #1
Submitted by Linda Caddel

The winter mounted games season kicked off in great fashion December 13 as a hardy troop of riders met at the Kentucky Horse Park for a full day of competition. Proving once again what a hardy and determined lot we are, riders trailered from Tennessee, Virginia, Illinois, Michigan, Ohio and Kentucky.

While flu was garnering headlines in the newspapers, it also claimed a few teams. We hope the Raynors from Indiana and the “Pink Elephants” from Stones River Pony Club are recovered and able to join us in January.

We tried some games new to Snowball at this session in addition to our traditional favorites. New to the roster were Tent Pegging, Canadian Race and the Turkey Race. A pairs division was added this year which proved very popular. It is much easier to pull together two riders to ride together in the off season. During the day snow started falling at a good rate. We were sorry to see the Purple Sparkly Gerbils have to withdraw in order to get home safely.

We want to thank our supporters of this first Snowball. Farmers Feed Mill donated t-shirts that were given as some awards. Kentucky Equine Research provided awards bags for all competitors. We also want to thank our photographer, Butch Housman.

Thank you to Debbie & Chelsea Bush for supplying part of the games equipment, and to Donna McCready who helped to transport all of the equipment back and forth from Caddel Farm to the Kentucky Horse Park. And many thanks to all of the competitors and families who announced, scored, officiated, set equipment in the cold and snow. Our sport cannot function without you!

Our next Snowball is January 11 at the Kentucky Horse Park! If you don’t have an entry, you can contact Linda at for an entry form.
