Midnight is a GREAT drill team horse! He knows his job but yet doesn't get confused if we change positions (some horses get so used to the routine, if you put them in a different spot they want to go their normal way lol) and he can catch up or slow down if needed. We do a lot of parades with the team as well, he's not so good with those. Nothing bothers him as in the crowds or things, but he HATES waiting around and thinks the pace is too slow lol!
I wasn't near the ring for the in hand or the open and youth driving, but I think there were 9 in the ammy driving obstacle class I was in?
In AMHA it's 80 percent judged on color and 20% on conformation (in Midnight's color class he would NOT stand still AT ALL for the confo part, I'm surprised two judges placed him better than last lol!). In AMHR it's 100% color.
I have another mare due in May. I have them on marestare if you want to try to catch their births. If you go to www.marestare.com
and click for the cam link page, then click CheyAut Ranch. Last I saw it still said mine is off and not flash, but that's incorrect ;)
