I Love Bundy!

We went to Gundagai show on the weekend.

He was super good - Did really good workouts in our hack class, so soft and attentive, and our working class, really technically correct rollbacks and good attention.

We had some horsey friends there also, and one of the younger girls (13) had to put down her ASH not long ago so she didn't have a ride. So I offered Bundy to her for the Working ASH with rider under 15 class.

She hopped on and rode him for about 5 minutes and ran into her class...

And won! He was soo good for her, and she had to do a hand gallop and haunch turns and stops from hand gallop. Just took it all in his stride.

She then went in for champion Working ASH with rider under 18 years - She was against her older sister and one other girl.

She won! She got a champion ribbon and a rug. I was so proud of my boy - He just adjusted and took care of her and pulled off a good performance to boot.

Here they are after winning champion :]

Wow!! Amazing!! Congrats to them! You are very sweet to offer your horse. Not many folks would be willing to do that.

"Riding a horse is not a gentle hobby, to be picked up and laid down like a game of solitaire. It is a grand passion. It seizes a person whole and, once it has done so, he will have to accept that his life will be radically changed." -Ralph Waldo Emerson

I just felt really bad for her - I know how much it sucks to be at a show watching without a horse to ride!

He had a kind of "what the?" look on his face lol but jus went with it. Such a good boy :]

That is so awesome. I love Bundy, he is such a sweetie. Good for you loaning him to her so that she could compete.
