...2009 will be history. I am sure many of you will agree that saying goodbye to this year won't break your heart. I know it won't break mine!!
Now is, however, the time to reflect back on what went right, the successes garnered as well as the triumphs and victories, all individually unique, of the past twelve months.
This past year started with a bang as *Noble Lord JP was awarded a Top Five with his owner in the elite Freestyle Liberty Championship, after winning his section, at the prestigious Scottsdale All Arabian horse show in Arizona. As an added bonus, his grandson TF Sir Prize was also named Top Five in the Freestyle Liberty, plus Top Tens in both AOTH and Open Stallion Halter (winning the Reserve Championship in the AO). A great-grandson, Sirpremacy DP also brought home Top Tens in both the AOTH and Open Two Year Old Colt classes. It was truly a family affair!
We also brought home more blue ribbons and high point awards than we can count from both the Mojave River Valley Horsemen's Association and the Sun Country Horsemen's Association, in addition to taking home the SCHA Yearling Longeline Futurity Championship.
Our year culminated in multiple Year End High Point Championships with several clients, horses and students; with a couple of YEHP Reserve Championships and a Trainer of the Year award from Sun Country Horsemen. On various levels, 2009 was indeed a very good year.
In store for 2010 is another long show season with hopefully many, many more shining moments. We will definitely share them through this blog, in addition to continuing to offer more equine-related wisdom and training advice. All of you readers really make my day, every day. :) This is, after all, an online horse training resource for all. I thank each and every one of you for your participation and patronage.
We'll see you next year!!
