Can I get a Hallelujah for a HaPpY horseshow?!
My 4 yo little buddy John even got a ribbon at his first show.
(Too bad he's generally UNhappy about having his picture taken so we didn't get any great ones of him and his adorable Betty Boop together.)
His big sister Bella also started with me when she was four.
She had so much fun here on her new pony Mystery and got several great ribbons.
The awesome judge Robin Townsend made her smile even bigger by giving her a blue ribbon!
They even repainted their horse trailer (DIY!) and Elizabeth got her craft on using her cricut to make a snazzy farm name across their trailer! Wow! I feel lazy next to Elizabeth!
|Will you do my trailer next please Elizabeth? xo|
A big congratulations also to my newest student Riley ~
She'd just bought her pretty pony three days before the show!
They made a beautiful pair and got a pink ribbon (Riley's favorite color). YaY!
Jack and Merit had another great show!
I'm so proud of my sweet boy. He's brave and loves his pony.
They were a whirling dervish in the warm-up ring tho as Jack practiced cantering and begged to jump!
Jack's only complaint was that he was beaten by his sister. It was her turn though. She'd really earned it.
Of course, I was thrilled for my dear daughter to finally feel like a success on her pony.
Sarah got so many compliments on her riding and attitude... Yes, Piggy still dumped her twice, but immediately after the first time in the warm-up, she went right into the ring and got a blue ribbon!
Later, after schooling our new student Riley's cute pony over jumps, Sarah decided to jump Piggy.
He dumped her again. AGAIN she got right back on with nary a whimper.
xoxo My girl is tough and talented. xoxo
Throughout all our horsey activities The Farmer/Daddy works hard behind the scenes.
Not only does he have big muscles (brain and biceps!) and a soft touch with kids n horses, but equally priceless during these events... he has the best sense of humor n always keeps me sane!
Thank you honey for always coming and lending support!!!
Thanks to all my friends who said a prayer for a peaceful day!
Hope you're all happy as a bird with a french fry!
