Mine and Gavyn's first real show!

Today I took my gelding to our first "real" show. And it was both of our first English class ever. We did an English W/T Class. Gavyn was really good, and we actually got a ribbon! We placed fourth!!! I know most people don't get excited about 4th place, but I am super excited!

This is before our class. They said that since it was so hot today (90 *F) Jackets were optional

After our class! I am very excited... Gavyn on the other hand is like "Duurrrr"

And then Happy Gavyn at his hay bag!

RIP Minnie, 1981-January 15, 2010
RIP Maggie Mae I miss you

A ribbon is a ribbon but what really matters is how you feel about yourself and your ride. Well done.

Thank you All! Gavyn is such a great horse, I am so pleased with him! The only thing I would change is how big he is haha! Me being 5' and him being 16 Hands is kind of difficult to get on!

Your smile says it all Congrats to you and Gavyn!

Sometimes I wrestle with my demons. Sometimes we just snuggle.

He is generally a very calm guy, which is just what I need. I get so tense and stressed that I need an easy going horse lol.
I was so happy with him, I couldn't stop smiling!
