Two members of the Westbrook Junior College, Portland, Maine, Wanakea Riding Club trot their horses around the Stroudwater riding ring in this deckled-edged, candid black and white glossy snapshot developed in May 1940 by Bicknell Photo Service. The two young women wear jodhpurs and boots. The one in the lead astride the white horse wears a white shirt and dark gloves. The one following on the dark horse wears a riding jacket.

Within the WJC Wanakea Riding Club, six emblems were given to riders: shoe, for ability to ride a walk or trot; spur, for walk, trot, and canter; crest for general proficiency in all gaits; bar, for jumping; whip, for driving; and circle, for teaching.
