Grace and MMP A Spot-tacular Jam, aka "Munch"
MMP A Spot-tacular Jam (sired by KS's Jammin With A Ghost) and Grace, his youth rider, compete in Pony Club mounted games. Munch is a smaller pony of 52" tall, a size that is very popular because it is easier to vault on and off of the pony. Smaller size does not hold "Munch" back, as his quick mind learns what he required of him in the often complicated games and he always puts Grace in good position to accomplish the tasks required- while never having to check up! Grace and her family love Munch so much that late last summer they also purchased his little brother, KS's Pile On The Jam "Ruben". Continued best wishes, Grace!
Mounted games are very fast paced relay races played on a team of five players. There are over 20 different races. This picture shows the "Socks and Buckets" race, where you dunk a sock into a bucket, jump off, grab a sock off the ground, and vault back on with the sock in hand to pass to another rider.
Munch is very popular in mounted games. I am always receiving complements on how great and fast he is!
Ruben will also hopefully be trained for this as well.
