Our First Western Show - Connecticut Color Breed

This was the rated show we went to on Sunday, only my second time showing ever! We had a fantastic first show, we'll be attending all the shows for this association. They have classes for all breeds, not just color breeds. My barn owner and trainer make all of our clothes.

There were approximately 15 people in each class, about 75 entries total. We placed third in Adult Fitting and Showmanship. We didn't place in our Walk/Trot classes, but I really don't mind, we had a fantastic ride and a great time!

Thanks! I use many different products, but most often, an Olive Oil spray meant for people. I also use argon oil or tea tree oil to highlight her muscles.

Beautiful!! And omg I know what olive oil spray you're talking about, because a friend at the barn uses it on her horse, she is this little petite blonde thing so she said she got a couple perplexed looks when she was shopping in that section of the hair supplies though! haha
