Here is a link to one of the classes that we entered. This class I rode hunt. There will be another link soon where I showed western.
Well we did it! We attended the Blue Lakes Farm Horse show towards our 2009 Saddlebred promotional award. This is an open show with mostly QH's and a QH Judge, so I did not expect to do well. But we did the Saddlebred proud, because we got Second place in Open English Pleasure-No Stock horses. 1st place in Western Pleasure 18 and over, 3rd place in Ladies Western Pleasure and 1st place in Western Pleasure no QH's. There were 2 classes we did not place in because we made a couple of oops! but it was 27 degrees and Miss Santana was feeling pretty good. She was showing off the Saddlebred in her. But she settled down and ended the day with 4 ribbons. 2 - Firsts, 1 - Second and a third. Not too shabby!!
My friend Beth had a good day for her first show with her 4 year old QH and she can't wait to go back. The January show was canceled due to weather so it felt good to get his show in. Beth's husband came and he took video and pictures so hopefully I can share them soon. Next weekend I will be announcing at the North East Ohio Academy Horse show. BUSY BUSY!!
