Deer Park teen to compete at national pony championships

July 20, 2011

Colton Youngblood-Munsen and Pistol Pete

Deer Park’s 13-year-old Colton Youngblood-Munsen is taking part in the National Pony Club Festival and Championships this week in Lexington, Ky.
Youngblood-Munsen, son of Jenny Youngblood of Deer Park, earned a spot in the national event with a win at the Stanton Farm Horse Trials last September in Deary, Idaho.
He will be competing in Kentucky with longtime companion Pistol Pete, a grey 13.1-hand Welsh pony cross. They won the Inavale Farm Horse Trials last month in the final tune-up before heading to Kentucky.
They will compete in dressage, cross country and show jumping at the championships.
The pair have been together for the past nine years. The national championship will be their final pairing.
Youngblood-Munsen, a freshman-to-be at Deer Park High School, is a member of the Bits & Spurs 4-H Club and Coeur’ De Cheval Pony Club in Deer Park.
