Our first show of 2011 started out cold and blustery but ended up sunny and warm. We had a good turnout with some new faces along with our old friends. It was great to see everyone and lovely not to get rained out!
Our Western classes were very large and had to be split, and even at that they were still large!
Jeny and her lovely mare Smokey made an impression on the judge....the judges husband wanted to buy Smokey!
The trail classes are always fun though sometimes the horses don't find them as amusing as we do!
Looking forward to the next obstacle!
Backing is not as easy as it looks!
Ali says he will do whtever is asked of him! Chris and Ali won the hard trail, and would have had a perfect score had she cantered the jump!
While not as big as the western classes, the english classes were quite good.
We hope everyone had a good time and that both they and their horses enjoyed the show.
At the end of the day our Overall high point winner was Gail Williams, Reserve WTC was Micala Brown. Erica and Jazmin were our WT Champions for the day, and Pam Stephens was reserve WT champion.
Our March Show was not large due to threatening weather, however we did have lots of good entrants and our high point winners were Liz Jones and chance, and Lauren Landau and Robin
We had a beautiful day for our September show and after the hot miserable summer I think everyone was ready to get out and play with their horses.
Western classes were very large and the competition was fierce.
Trail classes were fun and challenging.
Our english classes had some new faces.
At the end of the day our overall High Point winner was Lauren Landau and our Walk Trot Canter High Point Winners were Amy and Ariella Harris. The reserve Walk Trot high point went to Terri Eldredge.
Our October show was chilly in the morning but then we had lovely sun for the rest of the day. Halter classes were excellent and we had fun teasing Lori McCain about not riding her wonderful halter mare!
Our October show is always fun because of the costume class. Catherine Arndt and Luca came as a racehorse and jockey.
I am not quite sure what Micala and Misty were......but they were doing it without a bridle on!
Hank was not fond of the shiney bridge!
Chris and Ali took home the blue for Hard Trail!
