I told Kaitlin as a reward for working with Sparkle Plenty, I would take her to the POA show in Oct. Johanna our foreign exchange student went along and rode a couple classes. We truly had fun; Showmanship is not her thing, nor can we compete in the halter classes with expensive horses and fancy trainers but she did really well at the Walk, Trot with Johanna.. Considering there was no room to warm up a horse, Kaitlin entered in the Western Pleasure just to warm her up and should have placed. Was cut off several times by other horses and Sparkle did great. Games of course was the action of the day and she came home with many ribbons. We were there almost 20 hours so it was a long day but so much fun. Ironically, we all slept in today.
We had three horses at the Fair this year. Buddy, sold to Megan, and will be leaving us this weekend, Sparkle Plenty who was ridden by a young girl who didn't have a horse to ride, and Baihley took Harvey in training. At the Open Show, Baihley rode Harvey and then brought in Socks her gaming horse for fun... It was a hot fair, but a great one.
