    Some Pictures From Last Sunday's Show *Pic heavy*

    This weekend was my very first western show, besides gymkhana. I've been wanting to do this for a long time and I'm so happy my boss gave me the opportunity. I shared Skippy with her daughter who I've been teaching. Needless to say there were lots of proud mama moments!!

    A little about Skippy... She came to my barn 7 years ago and she was a hot mess from a dead beginner adult rider blasting her around on trails for 7 years. Didn't want to trot, couldn't canter straight, ran straight through your hands, constantly swapped leads, etc. I spent 2 years being the primary one to ride her and now she is a good lesson horse for intermediate students. As a result she has become known as "my horse", still to this day there aren't many people who can "speak her language". She is a ex-Reiner who still knows all her stuff and he daddy was QT Poco Streke. I love he to little piece! Anyhow, on with the post...


    It rained on us all... Day.... Long! I didn't mind as I REALLY was looking forward to the day. We showed in showmanship, horsemanship, pleasure, trail and command. My class was combine so it was novice/amature. I was surprised at how many people "show every weekend" showed up with their fancy horses and expensive tack. I placed third (out of 4) in 4 classes and I got a second in pleasure, I believe. I also took home reserve champion of my two or three person division . My student really killed the (again combined) youth/adult beginner w/t and individual canter. She took home grand of at least 4 other riders.

    I definitely need to work more on keeping our jog steady, at home it's pretty solid but she was pretty forward at the show. I could have also placed higher in command if I had reversed to the inside instead of rolled back. Skippy OWNS at stuff loping right off, stopping, lead swaps, etc. I could of also placed higher in trail had I spent a little more time memorizing there I should of jogged I was so worried making sure my ADHD nervous wreck student knew what she was doing!!

    All and all it as a super fun experience and my proud of my horse and my student! I can't wait for the July one! Here's some pictures.

    Good morning Skippy!


    We had breakfast together.


    Game face!


    She wan't a fan of Bri's pep talk.

    Here's some of me riding


    There was a horse tied up over there eating hay.. very interesting apparently


    She doesn't like to lope one pole, let alone 3! But she did it!






    Sorry it looks like I'm hauling on her moulth. It was after the dreaded poles, then we stopped in the box and she felt like trotting the poles may be a good idea.




    My favorite pic of the day:


    How cute is the reserve ribbon??


    Thanks for looking!

    Good job!
    I like the fact that you don't use one of those fancy saddles dripping with silver and still brought home reserve. All that expensive tack has nothing to do with the training and abilities of either horse or rider. Shalom

    Thanks everyone!

    Idk how I could ever show pleasure for real... the fashion show is a real turn off. Give me a nicely tooled saddle any day!

    Mines dripping green tarnished silver but I don't have that cool reserve ribbon.

    It really is cute, I've never seen one like that!

    That show looked like tons of fun. I love doing the trail class. I hate the dreaded poles!

    She HATES poles. If we don't do them for a while she will actually jump them . I tried to turn her into a jumper once, that ended quickly. She over jumped a barrel laying on its side high enough to EASILY clear the 4 1/2 foot split rail fence. I did the scared cat pose and landed on top of her in mid air then fell off... that put a SCARY and abrupt stop to our jumping career.
