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.

One, two . . . one, two . . . one, two. Posting trot . . . diagonals. . . de agony of de beat.Many riders at Saturday's Lehigh Riding Club Horse and Pony Show found out just how agonizing it can be trying to get correct diagonals. They also found out just how important getting the correct diagonal is to the judge.For those who think this sounds like a foreign language, here is a brief explanation:The trot is a two-beat gait in which the horse moves diagonally-opposed pairs of legs. The rider lifts his hips forward barely out of the saddle as one or the other of the horse's front legs moves forward.

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.

WHEN Ellee Perri spies the rocking horse in her grandparents' living room, she eagerly runs to it, climbs on and rocks back and forth with a big smile on her face. Not too unusual for a 22-month-old. But unlike most toddlers her age, Ellee is equally comfortable in a saddle atop a real horse - a Shetland pony. And she'll be riding that pony at the 120th annual Maryland State Fair, which opens tomorrow in Timonium for an 11-day run. Oh, and it will be Ellee's second State Fair competition.
