Reserve Champion this time.

Well back to the Open Hunter division for the last show of the series.

Last month we missed the flat class due to the weather and just missed being Reserve Champion because of that missed class.

Well good weather prevailed and in 1 flat and two over fences classes got 7th on the flat. Then 1st in one over fence class. Then 1st in the second over fences class and 8th in the last over fence class.

He should have placed much higher in the last over fence class but a bee got into my rider's ear on the last line of fences and she rode him one handed over the fences (horse did great) but she dismounted before leaving the ring (would have been elimination) but he was too good in that class so the judge gave us 8th place. Had we placed higher we would have been champion....oh well.

So 2 firsts, one 7th and one 8th = Reserve Champion.

Congratulations!!!!! Well earned I'm sure.

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.

It's not always what you say but what they hear.

Woo hooy! Nice going!

Most people are like Slinkies; they serve no real purpose, but they bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs.
When you come to the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on for dear life.
