The premier fall driving event for the eastern United States in Windsor, South Carolina, began with the FEI Advanced Single Pony Division, on Thursday afternoon. Sheri Dolan and her Shetland pony Smoke, smoked the judges with a 49.79 penalty score putting the individual USA participant at the [#25178 override="2009 US World Pony Driving Championships" title="2009 US World Pony Driving Championships"] well into the lead. Dolan and Smoke, who had to withdraw after the best USA cross country round at the Pony Driving Championships due to a minor injury, are in top form as they finish out a great year of competition.

Dolan recently relocated to Windsor, South Carolina, a large equestrian community just outside of Aiken, which is a favorite for driving enthusiasts. With miles of sand packed trails, and a large selection of top driving and training facilities, this region in the southeastern United States continues to be a large draw for the driving community.
