Reyna and I won 1st in the showmanship, got 2 seconds; one in western pleasure, and one in horsemanship. Well, Reyna and I tied with another girl for first place in the horsemanship, so the judge came over and asked up how many beats in a back up...! I knew the answer, but the other girl had said it just a second before me. That's what broke the tie! She also won me $10.00 in the western pleasure!
As for the baby, her very first show and she placed 5th in the halter (out of 8 )!! The second time (showmanship) was a total mess! I felt so sorry for the guy next to us. We were in the 3 and under and his horse started to act off of mine.
I have to admit it was kinda funny
. My horse would circle, then his horse would circle, and so on (literally throughout the WHOLE class!!)...Then they'd stand quiet for like 2 seconds and someones horse would whinny, then one of our would whinny then the other had to go see what was going on so then we had to circle....lol. What a mess that one was!
The lady who took me up to the show and has been helping me with my showmanship/halter said she was surprised I wasn't asked to leave the ring:)
