August 5, 2013 (Lexington, KY) – Six outstanding Pony
Club members were awarded college scholarships through the United States
Pony Clubs, Inc. for outstanding sportsmanship, stewardship, and
leadership through horsemanship. The recipients are chosen by a
scholarship committee and administered by Pony Club based on the
requirements for each opportunity.
The Dorothy Renfro Memorial Scholarship is awarded annually for higher
education to an active Pony Club member who exhibits the qualities that
Dorothy Renfro valued most: leadership, horse management, and
volunteering time and energy to beneficial activities. She hoped to
encourage horsemen and women in their academic pursuits. This year,
there are two recipients of the Renfro Memorial Scholarship. Kaitlyn
Vorbroker, a C-3 Trad from Walnut Creek Pony Club, is currently
attending Otterbein University, majoring in Business Administration with
an Equine Science minor. Kaleigh Quinn, a B-Trad/ H-B HM from Autumn
Ridge Pony Club, is currently attending Quinnipac University, majoring

Pony Club members pursuing Liberal Arts degrees in areas such as
literature, music, theater, and visual arts. Recipient Molly Ryan, a C-2
HM/FL from Sinking Creek Pony Club, has been accepted to Virginia Tech,
and plans to major in English. The Pony Club Jubilee Scholarships are
awarded to Pony Club members for excellence in academic pursuits and
outstanding achievements in Pony Club. Applicants have achieved a Pony
Club certification of C-2 or higher.
The two recipients of the Pony Club Jubilee Scholarships are Emma Deane,
an H-A Trad from Moon Valley Pony Club, who is currently attending the
University of California at Davis School of Veterinary Medicine, and
Samantha Pitcher, an H-HM from River Bend Pony Club, has been accepted
to the University of Virginia and plans to major in Engineering.
The Anson W. H. Taylor Memorial Scholarship is sponsored by Pony Club
and the Equine Land Conservation Resource in memory of former Pony Club
President and ELCR founder Anson Taylor. The Scholarship is awarded to a
current Pony Club member who has been active with and committed to
efforts on behalf of land conservation. This year’s recipient is Claire
