Neither we (the CAA) nor I will be at this year’s FEI World Pony Driving Championships, so I wanted to alert you to Shelley Temple’s blog. She’s a CAA member and is hoping to be named to the U.S. team, which will be competing for top pony-driving honors in Slovenia later this month. To that end, Shelley and her pony have spent part of the summer in Germany, training and competing.

And, Shelley, if you happen to read this: thank you for the photos from Mainz! I used to live there, and it was a treat to see the wonderful farmers’ market and cathedral square again.
