Members of the St. Croix Pony Club celebrated Halloween in an unusual way – not only did they make and wear costumes, but they also decorated their “rides” for a parade around the track located on the edge of the Rain Forest on the west end of the island.
Pony Club Commissioner Jane Coles said the members learn about caring for horses, the proper diet, health issues, bandaging, temperature and how to groom the horses before they are allowed to ride. Ten of 12 members were on hand Saturday for maneuvers and party.
