The National Pony Society is saddened to hear that Mrs Ghita Jago passed away recently at the age of 95. Mrs Jago was a great supporter of the show pony and owned many beautiful ponies over the years. She had huge success at the highest level with numerous ponies but her enthusiasm for seeing them perform well in the ring never faltered. Many young riders have been proud to be known as ‘Jago jockeys’ and all benefitted from Mrs Jago’s expert advice and encouragement.
The last show she attended was NPS Area 20 on the 23rd June, where she was delighted to see her two year old filly take the championship. Mrs Jago will be sorely missed in the pony world and our condolences are sent to her family.
