Pics from the fun Mini/Pony show last weekend :) Being a fun show, vs A or R, no shaving or dressing up was necessary. My friend Jen came and showed minis for the first time... including her first jumping, first obstacle, first showmanship, and FIRST TIME DRIVING and did GREAT! :) And as far as my horses I took, only Chili has done halter (and never worked with the others on it). Jewel had never done showmanship or obstacle or jumping. Gambler never did obstacle (cart or harness). I think they did great :)
Halter foals and yearlings. I showed my silver appy Sharpie, who took 3rd, and Jen showed my dark brown colt Locke, who took 4th. Not bad considering there was one other foal, the rest were yearlings!
Halter mares. Jewel got 2nd!
Halter geldings. It was a HUUUUUUGE class, the first pic is just a small portion of it. Chili got 2nd :)
Halter colts and stallions. Jen showed Locke, I showed Gambler. I don't remember how we placed... 3rd with Gambler I think? Locke??? I need to find the paper I wrote it on....
Halter Championship. Jen showed Jewel and I showed Chili
Halter pony. I showed my yearling Welsh filly, Willow. She didn't place, but I didn't expect her to against the nice, mature ponies she was up against. She was a bit worried about what was going on around her, but she was very well behaved :) The POA is Skylar, whom I used to own. Sold him to my friends at this show two years ago, and this year they showed him here :)
Multi Color. I showed Gambler and Jen showed Jewel. Skylar got 1st place :)
Halter obstacle. I showed Chili, Jen showed Gambler and Jewel. And Craig got roped into showing a friend's horse, Wildfire ;) That friend took pics of them, but didn't know how to zoom. Pics of others in here as well.
Driving championship. Jen with Chili, me with Gambler. I dont' recall placings, but the judge told us Chili was the nicest horse there, but due to Jen's clothes, she didn't place 1st... Um, this is a FUN show and it specifically states clothes don't matter! Oh well, was still fun...
Costume class... I was a fisherman in my boat, Chili is a sea(C)horse! And Jen had Locke, who was the headless horseman's horse :) I forget Locke's placing, but Chili got 1st :)
It sure was fun :) And I'm so happy hubby had no problems with us keeping little Sharpie :) I wasn't sure what he'd say... and after he said ok, I still had him for sale for just a little longer... but today I said something about it, and hubby said "but I thought we're keeping Sharpie!?" :)
