Just wanted to share with you a photo of Paddy and I at the local show I had today! Paddy is a standardbred who is pretty much a paddock horse nowdays. It was not only Paddy's first show, but mine too! We took out Champion Led Standardbred (by default... there wasnt anyone to compete with!!)
Although not bred for beauty, I think its really important that we get some Standardbreds out in the show ring to try and promote the breed Because anyone that owns one knows just how wonderful they really are!
Here in Australia the Standardbred Performance Horse Association is starting to include Led and Ridden Standardbred classes in local ag shows around NSW and it would be great if there were more competitors!
So just a shout out to all the Aussie Showies out there- bring along your Standy next time.. we all know you have one! Hehe.
