Showing Jynx photos!
My friend finally posted the shots from the light horse show we went to! I love these shots because they never betray how absolutely livid I am with her in most of them. :lol: Apparently she only got our good moments!

It was a lousy show from the start, we did good in gaming but the next day for the real show the judge was a DICK. This is a completely "rinky dink" nothing fun show that you pay like $3 a class for. NOBODY here is "top show quality". The guy scolded me in my showmanship class for not doing a better job of hiding Jynxy's year old scar. WTF?! How does that have ANYTHING to do with showmanship? After the class, he lined us all up and reemed ALL of us out for being total disappointments and walking into his ring "unprepared". Like, where on EARTH do you think you are buddy? NATIONALS? Get real. We all had beautiful turnout, we just struggled with some movements because some of us have NEVER done this (me included).

Jynx was a screaming blithering idiot the entire time anyway, so it's not like we were placing even with a good judge! I'm glad these photos turned out though! I LOVE my shirt - my friends mom made it for me and you cannot say it is NOT epic and obnoxious!!! LOL
Entering showmanship
Trying to make her stand like less of a goon LOL
Fixing mane I think
Set up for inspection by Judge Crochety Pants
Attempting our turn on the haunches LOL
English time! Even SHAY-LA didn't place and this was the girl who got over 70's at Walk Trot, Training Level AND 1st Level Dressage (first time ever) at the last schooling show, beating out many coaches and trainer. Who did he pin? Well naturally the Western horses in English tack...
She looks so innocent LOL
I like to stare down a lot apparently...
Prancy prance!
SRSLY. She was NOT actually this good. Kim is just an amazing photographer!
Western Pleasure which ended disasterously for us (she freaked repeatedly, bolted, and then my belt popped off so we got to stand in a corner for the rest of the class!)
She's just tricksy and likes to make me look like a liar. :lol:

OH! We also had a SUPER fun gaming show to go to over a month ago and everyone did AMAZING. It was a very laid back atmosphere, totally a silly games gymkhana and we had a BLAST. I think I ended up winning like 4th in barrels, 5th in keyhole, 5th in the licorice race, 1st in double barrels, 1st in phone book relay and 2nd in egg and spoon.
Me and Shayla in the phone book race - we had to gallop to the end of the arena, Shay-la jumped off while I held Justus, find page 100 in a phone book, rip it out and show it to the attendant then jump back on and gallop home while holding a 2'0" long piece of toilet paper - we were home and on our victory lap before anyone even mounted up again!!
Our trophies for winning! The reason why I am SO excited is because the VERY thoughtful gate person actually made sure I got the green trophy and Shay-la got the pink one to match our horses outfits!
Egg and spoon master - first time I've ever NOT won egg and spoon and it was because my last competition was riding an AQHA champion pleasure mare. LOL
Jynx was having NO part of this ridiculous spear the potato race.
The absolute most awkward barrel photo ever. Poor Jynxy, she much prefers Dressage!!!

Squeeee! Se looks fantastic MM! I know exactly how you feel, the last show I took Lucy too before I left she spent all day screaming out to her mate out the back, you just want to kill them ha ha!

And might I say, you look fantastic! I haven't been on here for a while, but girl you are looking awesome :)

MacabreMikolaj 08-07-2012 01:13 AM

Awwww thankies! 25 pounds down and 25 more to go! Me and Shay-la have started a jogging program and will be doing a 5K run on September 30 for Run For The Cure! Our goal is a 10k next year!!!

Just for fun this was me and Zierra at the exact same show exactly a year ago:

Looks like a great day, shame the judge tried to ruin it, *sigh* how does one get experience without going to a fun show or two.

You and Jynx look totally fantastic.

PintoTess 08-07-2012 01:32 AM

Shes GORGEOUS! She so should have won (Im a coloured horse biased haha) ;) I really do love her coloring !

AngieLee 08-07-2012 01:37 AM

you both look fantastic! shame the judge had to be so grumpy!! hope hes not there at your next show lol

MacabreMikolaj 08-07-2012 11:51 AM

Yeah our friends actually decided not to go to this show even though they were sponsors because of past experiences with this judge. Thankfully, this circuit doesn't allow the same judge 2 years in a row so if we DO go next year, it will be a different judge. I found last years judge very reasonable and fair and I didn't even pin in most classes so I'm definitely not sour grapes about not pining. It's just hard when you see the SAME horses pinning and they all happen to be his students..... I'm pretty sure that's why they won't allow the same judge more then one year running. We have so few, they're BOUND to be judging their own students as well. Some just pull it off better then others!

I had a judge @ my very first show that told me that my horse needed to go back to the basics and didnt belong in a show ring because she kept breaking gait and throwing her head up it turns out she had grass on her bit it dried and it rubbed her skin raw and than I went in again and she said that I didnt belong here and didnt want to place me, that got my trainer going, the judge ended up popping out her shoulder ut in a showmanship class trying to handle a different horse, I mean were 4h kids for crying out loud this is for fun and shes judging like this is nationals

Well, it sounds like you had some fun there, and I had fun reading your descriptions. Mr. Crotchety Pants! I love that.
