[Petaluma, CA] On Friday afternoon, before the slightly more serious events got underway at the Giant Steps Charity Classic Presented by Gucci, the Sonoma Horse Park’s first annual Junior Team Relay took over the Wells Fargo Grand Prix Arena. Teams of costumed kids and ponies of all sizes raced through a short course that included egg and spoon, bobbing for apples, and “flowerbox bending” (in place of poles.)
Prior to the class, teams fundraised for Giant Steps Therapeutic Riding Center; the teams that raised the most money received seconds off their overall relay time.
Anytime you tell kids they can dress up with their horses, the fantastic result is sure to run the gamet. Kermit the Frog, Superman, a tiny Joker to his Batman, fairies, swimmers and more all turned out for the class. Hilarity ensued. Enjoy the photos!
