Well, we went to our first horse show of 2011, Saturday, February 19, 2011. It was so important to my eldest daughter that she put off her birthday party for a whole week in order to be in attendance.
In this horse show she showed Showmanship at Halter in the 9-year-old division. She is so excited, this is the first time she has shown without being on horseback.
It amazed me at how much she remembered from her lesson. She took her first Showmanship Lesson on Tuesday the 15th of February and showed in her first show in Showmanship on the 19th of February.
I attribute half of this to her teacher. She is such a patient woman and you can tell she loves to pass on her passion for horses.
So it was off to the show again for us. We did not take our own horse this time we used her instructors horse Cody. He seems to be better trained than Red Bud when it comes to halter, plus he is not as large as Savannah’s own horse. This was an easy trip on Mom. Dad kept the other two girls much to their dismay. We didn’t have to pull a trailer and it was only about 10 miles from the house. I like these easy ones.
Savannah is still walking on cloud nine. She is going to her next lesson on the 22nd of February, I can hardly wait to see what she learns next.
Until next time,
