First Show of the Season…Successful? I’d say it was!

March 22, 2013

Amidst the excitement of getting to the first show of the season, getting the barn area set up, dealing with devilish winds and cold, working horses, bathing horses, getting riders ready and coming up with a viable game plan to make it all work, it’s hard to process the proceedings as they are occurring.  During the event, watching the blues and championships go up on the banner it is reasonable to say that it was a very successful adventure!

Miriam Reagan and Rare Friends were Country Pleasure Driving Champions and Reserve Grand Champions,

Rachel Wamble and It’s Alabama were Reserve Juvenile 3-Gaited Champions  and Grand Champions.

Rachel Wamble and Breve Latte were Reserve 3-Gaited Pleasure Novice Rider Champions, Juvenile 3-Gaited Pleasure Champions and Grand Champions.

Reagan Huguley and Rare Friends were top 3 in the competitive Adult Country Pleasure Championship.

Julie Wamble won her first 2 classes in Adult WTC Academy and then won her Championship also.

Katherine Moore was Reserve Grand Champion Academy WT 11-13.

Katherine Walcott in her first show as a Saddle Seat rider won the Adult WT Equitation and was reserve in her showmanship class.

Elizabeth Stevenson made her show ring debut after about a 5 year hiatus.  It was great to see her back.

Following in Elizabeth’s footsteps was her niece, Grace Stevenson, who won extremely good ribbons in a competitive 8 and under division.

Ashleigh Donovan showed her competitive spirit with third places all through her classesi in the 9-10 WT division.

Jessica Hill continues to be undefeated in the lead line walk and trot classes with her two wins.

Undoubtedly a good start to the year.  As I tweak on everyone and determine what I need to do to get everyone even better, I will enjoy this moment however brief it may be.

  1. You put on a great show – great folks and great team spirit. Congratulations to you for all of your hard work. And thanks for letting me share the fun.

  2. Yeah! Go Coach!
