Ask any woman what topped her childhood birthday wish list, and chances are good that it was a pony. Whether it was a plastic My Little Pony or a shaggy Shetland, that little horse represented one step toward princess-hood.

We do just about everything there is to do in the competition, says Lisa Thunberg, the groups vice president. That includes a slew of equestrian events like halter, English, and gymkhana.
