Here are some of the lovely pair-pony turnouts that competed on Saturday evening at the Carriage Festival:

.

Vicki Nelson Bodoh drove her Welsh / Arabian ponies, Ghost and Magic, to an antique Slat Side Phaeton, with her husband, Jim, serving as groom

.

… and another view of Vicki and her ponies (they competed last year as well and were featured on the cover of the Festival program; two of the show’s volunteers, who came all the way from Texas to help out, said how much they enjoyed watching the “pages of The Carriage Journal” and the cover of the program “come to life” at the Festival)

.

Nicole Cable, with her father seated beside her and her sister serving as groom, drove another pair of Welsh ponies

.

Katie Whaley, with Mooney and Tucker (more Welsh ponies), was the division champion

.

Heather Hossfeld drove yet another pair of Welsh ponies, put to a nineteenth-century Phaeton, and I think she and her passenger were wearing lovely hats
