Philip Dibben used to ride his horses from his Pasadena home about a mile to Bodkin Creek across open fields. More recently, he has had to truck his horses to Prince George's, Carroll or Montgomery counties to find trails because those he once used have been developed. "The trails that we have ridden for years have been disappearing," he said. The Pasadena Horse and Pony Association, of which Dibben is vice president, is working to change that. In response to a growing need for public horse-riding areas, the group is working on a volunteer effort to develop horse trails around the Lake Shore Athletic Complex.

Dan and Kathy Conahan, Robin Stallings and Karen Kilheffer planned for almost every contingency when they put together the first Chesapeake Miniature Horse Sale at the Conahan's Valhalla Farm in Finksburg last weekend.The one thing that they hadn't planned for, however, was tears."When we had the drawing for the free horse, one little girl cried and cried when her number wasn't drawn," Kathy Conahan said. "She really had her heart set on winning that horse. We didn't know what to do."Conahan said that she, too, wished the youngster from Westminster would have won Valhalla Farms Fancy Dancer, a 24-inch black gelding who was born June 6."

In a thick cloud of dust, Pretty Boy-Ed rounded the corner and sped off around the ring, working off some pent-up energy."That was quite an ending," judge Tom Smith called to Charlene Strunk, winner of the senior class pole bending race at the Carroll County 4-H/FFA Fair yesterday. "You were kicking up gravel all over the place."For 14-year-old Charlene, one of seven participants in the Western horse and pony show speed division, the race was a bit nerve-racking."Look at me, I'm shaking like a leaf," she told her mother and other well-wishers after she dismounted Pretty Boy-Ed, who helped her win second in the barrel and keyhole races, and the reserve championship in the senior class.

There was something for everyone at last weekend's Mid-Maryland Horse and Pony Association's annual awards ceremony.There was plenty of food and drink, door prizes, beautiful items on the silent auction table, dozens of trophies presented to the top point-earners in 60 classes and a surprise visit from a man in red driving a team of reindeer.The one thing missing that was really needed was name tags."I know I won't recognize about 90 percent of the people," organizer Sandi Collins said with a laugh, "especially the people who show English -- I always see them with their helmets on!"
