Fair 2011

Monday marked the start of Fair, which means lots of show preparation and 12-hour showing days! Monday I showed Excel in huntseat classes and Arthur in gaited eq and pleasure, and yesterday I showed Lenox in Western pleasure, reining, and trail. Tomorrow I have jumping with Excel and speed events with Molly, and Friday is championships with Arthur for gaited.

Excel being a freak by the trailer:



Equitation, 8th of 15:








Tacking up Lenox for Western Pleasure. I had to teach this horse to canter the day before we showed, as she would much rather do a fast trot than canter. I'm convinced we would have placed if we could have done walk-trot pleasure:

Reining!

Halt:



Lope to center:



Halt:








Lenox didn't place in WP because of her crazy draft canter, and in reining she had all of the right leads but ignored my neck reining and tried to make a break for it for the gate. Oh well, at least it was fun . I have jumping with Excel and speed events with Molly tomorrow; I'll add to this thread then.

So cool! love your grey horse- i bet its exhausting trying to keep three horses straight at a horse show, especially in several different disciplines!

No whisper of lover, no trilling of bird, can stir me as hooves of horses have stirred.
Wit beyond measure is man's greatest treasure!

Thanks! Actually, it's not too bad. I'm bringing four total this week, but only one or two each day.

Great pics good luck the rest of the week!

You are never better than anyone. Every rider has skills they need to improve. The only one you must compare yourself with, is you.

Thanks!! I'm psyched for Barrels tomorrow. At a show a few weeks ago, Molls ran a 21.1 in barrels, her first time ever on the pattern!
