I went to a show this weekend and took two horses. I was in seven classes. Four in-hand classes, and three performance classes. I was in two classes with my Appaloosa mare, and five with my Tennessee Walking Horse mare.
In Western Showmanship and Grooming with the app.(Peaches) I got eighth and I didn't place in Halter. I'm just happy we placed. She's more of a trail horse, but I love her. We should have placed in Halter though. She was the best muscled horse in the ring.
Anyways, in Gaited Halter and Gaited Showmanship and Grooming with Atty(the twh) I won both classes with about twenty five other exhibitors. In Trail Pleasure Racking and Walking/Racking Equitation we won again. In trail(with Atty) I got ninth out of twenty. Better than I thought we'd do. She hasn't done trail in years. At the end of the show Atty and I won the Gaited Division's High Point Award and I got a Montana Silversmith belt buckle with engraving on it for that.
So all in all it was an amazing day for me and my babies. I was so proud of Peaches and Atty. Even though Atty hasn't been ridden for two years(not my choice
) she still has it, and she's not even at her best yet. That tells me a lot. But, unlike Peaches, Atty was bred for the arena and she LOVES showing. She puts everything she's got on the line. I love my babies and I'm glad I've gotten the chance to show Peaches.
