I will start with mine:
I was at a show my fourth year in 4-H. My first year, I had a babysitter horse, the second I had a bucky pony, third I had a crazy horse fresh from training and still very green, but my fourth I had Summer. She is the one I worked the hardest with for sure because we REALLY bonded and she was SO easy to work with. It was her first year ever to do anything like. Never been shown before anywhere. Of course I was nervous, and she was nervous. We entered our first class-Mare halter. We went in and she trotted beautifully, stood square for the judge, but when we went on the fence she was a tad bit squirmy. We waited for someone in the class, but they accidentally grabbed the wrong horse. Since our club is small enough they tabled our class and let the next go in. So we walked out, after that class, mine went in again. She was just perfect! We got first place and then placed right under the Reserve Grand Champion mare in the Grand and Reserve class. I was soo happy. Then when I was sitting at the trailer, my mom's boss [who has two daughters that show with me] came up to me and said, "I'm glad you finally got a horse that shows your true potential."
That's the nicest thing anyone has said to me. What about you guys?
