Emmerson Ball, 8 years old, of Lake Macdonald, Qld, and her palomino pony gelding, the super Barjack Mr Bojangles, have had a fantastic year so far.
Emmi has owned "BJ" for almost 2 years now and this year has seen the pair win multiple broad sashes around the SE Qld show circuit, including a Grand National qualifying win of the Girl Rider class 12 years and under at Toowoomba Royal.
The pair also took out the Palomino Under Saddle win at Brisbane Royal, competing against mainly adults and the Colourama Under Saddle Exhibit at Brisbane Royal too. BJ took her to 4th place out of 25 riders in her rider class.
The pair won the Supreme Palomino Under saddle Perpetual trophy at last year's Dilutes Spectacular but will sadly have to forego another challenge this year as they will be at the Qld Country Hack Championships where last year they took out Ch. First Ridden and BJ piloted Emmi to a win in her rider class and third in the Sml Hunter Pony.
Barjack Mr Bojangles - the 11.2hh super palomino pony and Emmerson Ball - truly are a great little team.
Best of luck for the rest of the season including the Qld Country Hack Championships and HOTY!!!!!!!!!!
