MEMBERS JUDGING FUN VIRTUAL MUSICAL RIDE NOW OPEN

ipc logo rnd50Calling all Irish Pony Club members! The Fun Virtual Musical Ride competition is now open for judging, and we are inviting members to watch the videos of the four Virtual Musical Ride entries posted on the IPC Face Book page, and give their marks and comments on the online judging form. You can give marks for paces, team work, choreography, music and costumes, and overall impression - just like the judges for the rides at the Festival Championships!  Don't submit marks for your own Branch entry as they won't be counted, but you can enjoy watching them all.

We hope that Branches are inspired to create their own Musical Rides in 2021 - it is a lot of fun for everyone involved!
