Laderoute, who said her team is made up of a mixture of Warmbloods, was extreme- ly pleased to win Arenus’s EQUILITE Performance & Conditioning award as the fit- ness and conditioning aspect of combined driving is so important for success. “I live in an area of the continent where conditions to drive can be challenging with our win- ters, and I am doing a lot of the conditioning in a small indoor arena,” Laderoute said. “I arrived in Florida in Jan- uary and worked hard at top- ping up the horses for compe- tition in the two months.” Laderoute added that she began using SORE NO- MORE liniment when she arrived in Florida. “I have to say that I immediately liked the pleasing ‘bouquet’ and used it on myself first to see the impact. I was pleasantly surprised! I have also tried the SORE NO-MORE Poultice, and loved it!”

Regional Quiz Results On Saturday, May 8, approximately 100 members of 11Central Ontario Pony Clubs took part in the Central Ontario Regional Quiz at Uxbridge Secondary School in Uxbridge. Quiz includes a written test, a visual test where competitors have to identify strange, obs?cure and unusual horsy objects by sight (older competitors often have to read an X-Ray), an oral test and several “Quiz Stations” (games). The divisions in Quiz are based on age and knowledge level. The D, D1 and D2 levels are for the youngest and least experienced members, the C level for the intermediates, and the A/B level for the oldest and most experienced. D and D1 competition is on a team basis only, while the higher levels compete as both individuals and teams.
