A moms' brag moment,show results, pics

My pics are terrible...but I'll share anyway. Yesterday my daughter Sarah and her gelding Red did a combined test...this is their first year doing these together. Red was a trail horse less than two years ago, so they're worked hard to get some dressage into their program. Sarah rides about 4-6 days a week varying dressage and jumping..and does in hand the days she doesn't ride.
So b/c they were so green I put her in pre-amoeba this year. She does USEF Into A and 18 inch cross rails. She got a 63.35 on her dressage and no faults at all on her stadium jumping..PUTTING HER IN FIRST PLACE!! The judge was REALLY tough..highest score of the day was a 70, from a veteran pony. Sarah only does schooling shows. She also did two pre-caprilli tests, which she got a 60 on each. These scores are a good 5 points higher than what Red and she were getting last year. I'm so proud of her! This also will put her high point in her category for the year, b/c this was the last show!!
I love walking around the show and hearing people sharing the story of Red and Sarah with each other. He's always been an awesome horse, and he was a gift to us, but this was a hard change of pace for him from racing to trail to dressage... and he's just an awesome boy. Didn't get any jumping photos, because I am always judge at this show for the stadium jumping..so I was timing and watching like a hawk. But..she did her round in 70 seconds..time allowed was 79 and time limit was 110...so she was right on track. No rubs, refusals or poles down..so I'm happy with that.

Haha well, everything is for sale for a price :P Billy will just have a very large price on his head to part with me!
He's two in a month, I laid on him this morning while he snoozed before I went to work - what a crazy beast he is ;)

Awesome! I did a combined test yesterday on my 4yo mare. I've only had her for 2 months and a year ago she was still racing. We placed 7th on a score of 39.1 (we jumped clear!!). It was her first time off the property, I'm so proud :)

Congrats to Sarah! Nice pics too.
