Very exciting news, in yesterday's newspaper there was a short piece done on some of my clients and students, and their horses. Thank you, you know who you are!! There is nothing more fun than the wide eyed excitement of a child when they are acknowledged and applauded for their accomplishments, and this is no exception.
A very talented young student of mine is leading the Year End High Point for both English Walk/Trot and Western Walk/Jog at one of our tough show series' in the area, and the filly I am embarking on the Great Longeline Class Adventure with is leading the Year End High Point in both of her Halter divisions at another, different show series.
So here we are, the next show is one week from tomorrow. Countdown!! :)
I admit it, I am a horse show junkie. Love the process of getting horses (and riders/handlers) ready, love the preparation, love the excitement and love the competition. Everything leading up to show day are just as fabulous to me as the big day itself.
There are things that I don't like about showing horses, most of all some of the methods used to get horses "competitive" in their respective disciplines and often the tack used on some of the poor horses, along with the treatment some of them endure. I dislike the perception that some folks give of this sport that I love.
But enough about that.
I just wanted to share the excitement of owners and students, that there is a whole lot of good going on out there in horse show land. It doesn't get better than that!
