Not every pony can be persuaded to wear a tuxedo, complete with trousers, black tie and top hat perched at a rakish angle.And not every pony can learn to throw a flying disk.But not every pony has Hampstead 14-year-old Linda Fahnestock for its owner and trainer.Linda, an eighth-grader at Hereford Middle School, has persuaded ponies to do both of the above. And she is about to take her equitation on the road, to Australia -- if she can raise enough money to pay for the trip.She is one of six youngsters nationwide to be selected to represent the national Pony of the Americas Club at two large horse shows in Australia in April.

Each year the Governor's Cup is awarded to the top pony race rider in Maryland -- usually in May after the last steeplechase of the season. This year, because two race meets were postponed, the Governor's Cup will not be awarded until September.The delayed presentation of this award has neither dampened the enthusiasm nor diluted the competition.After two races in the series -- Elkridge-Harford and the Grand National -- Arabelle Knox and Elizabeth Voss are tied for first.Arabelle and her pony, Frisky Business, have won both of their races in the small pony division; Elizabeth and her large pony, Jay, have won the two races in their division.

BOSTON - Feeling embarrassed that an actor and body-builder with no experience is going to govern the Golden State? Appalled at a recall campaign built on steroids, stardust and a platform that added up to three little words, Hasta la vista? Well, I say snap out of it. Lighten up. Put on a happy face. This is the moment to remember the wisdom of that other California actor, governor and Republican, Ronald Reagan. It was Ronnie, after all, who described an optimist as someone who walked into a room full of horse manure and said cheerfully, "There must be a pony in here somewhere!"
