The Palmetto Pony Club hosted the first ever Stick Horse Races at The Carolina Cup March 31, at the Springdale Race Course in Camden. The event was organized by the club’s fundraising chair, Nancy Kennedy of Florence.

Palmetto Pony Club members, parents, grandparents and friends began this project in December 2017. Stick horses were crafted from 2-by-8 pieces of lumber then individually hand painted designs gave each stick horse a unique look.

For a $25 donation, you could select the stick horse of your choice and enter one of the eight stick horse races which were held in between the Steeplechase Races.  Participants were awarded ribbons 1st through 6th place.  The 1st place winner received a special prize.

Community sponsors also played a major part in contributing to the success of this project.  The proceeds from this project benefit the Palmetto Pony Club’s youth educational programs.

Palmetto Pony Club is accepting new members.  For more information send an email to
