Debbie Roy said– When I was 7 years old, my parents enrolled me in Hazel’s pony club. I would take my shetland pony, Stormy, out to home (just off of Highway 7) once a week for riding lessons. I have great memories of this.

Valerie Edwards said: Hi, Debbie, yes, still have 1 of the ribbons & I think a sweater patch. Remember Big Sue– one of the horses?
