After the crazy year we have had, we made it to the Thanksgiving show!
Hunter In Hand
JR Hunter Under Saddle
He placed second out of three under both judges in geldings, fourth and fifth of six in most colourful, fourth under both judges in HIH out of eight. He was grumpy by the time open came around, but had a break before HIH.
JR HUS was LAST class of the day. Walter was rode Friday night in the show pen, Saturday morning he was lunged before halter, rode at lunch (pictured), and in the paid warm up mock class. By the time JR HUS came around the lady riding him for me was getting anxious, and Walter was tired and feeding off that. Blew the class, had a slight baby meltdown, and stood in the center of the ring. After the class they both calmed down and figured things out in the practice pen and left it on a good note.
I am so happy with how my Walterbb did. Considering the year... just fabulous.
