American Shetland Pony Featured in 2008 Hodges Badge Catalog

Morton, IL- An American Shetland Pony, Pan’s Atomic Particle, graced the well-known 2008 Hodges Badge Company Catalog. The Hodges Badge Company, Inc. held a contest for the best combination of a horse and rider wearing a Hodges Badge ribbon. The photographs submitted were judged on suitability for use as a catalog cover and/or distribution throughout the catalog.

American Shetland Pony, Pan’s Atomic Particle, ridden by Tess Zywczyk proudly cantered around the ring in their victory lap with the striking Championship rosette and sash swirling around the pony’s neck. Pan’s Atomic Particle and Zywczyk won the Junior Rider Intro Level Dressage Championship at the Vinceremos Therapeutic Riding Center’s Benefit Show. “We were thrilled to have an American Shetland Pony represented in the catalog,” said Johnny Robb, Marketing Director of the American Shetland Pony Club (ASPC) and Miniature Horse Registry (AMHR), “The ASPC has been in the US since in 1888, and the ponies continue to improve. It is important that representatives of our breed are out in the mainstream.”

The Hodges Badge Company, Inc. has been the major providers of horse show ribbons and trophies for the past 88 years in the United States, not quite as long as the American Shetland Pony Club has been in existence! Their colorful catalog is bursting with ribbons, trophies, silver plates and frames ready to be awarded at shows and other ceremonies. Hodges has also published a complete guide to running a horse show called the Horse Show Planning Guide. This book includes everything you need to plan a show, including step-by-step timeliness and “fill in the blank” forms for publicizing your event. This book is a 116-page must-read for any Chairman desirous of staging a successful event.
