    IMG_2437.JPG We just got back from the Regional Champ Sport Horse Show. We had a marvelous time and the horses did great. My daughter ran horses for several trainers and ran the Triangle 18 times... she is clearly in better shape than I. She showed her Gelding for the last time as she is going off to college. They did beautifully, I am so proud of them. Now I need to figure out a plan to keep Mr Fancy Pants happy and busy for the winter.

    18 times? I don't know if I could run it once, lol. She must be good at it, if they asked her to do it 18 times.
    That's what being young gets ya. Any big winners in her efforts?

    Her and Her horse had won the Championships for many years, we decided to not run him this year to make way for the younger Generation. When we announced his in-hand retirement, she had plenty of request to run horses. She qualified all but one of the horses and then She ran in 3 champions and 4 reserve Champions and a couple of top 5's.

    LOL the last time I ran a horse, I ran as fast as I could and when I got back to the Judge they told me I need to go back and do it again because I did not go fats enough for him to extend.

    She also won several Dressage and Equitation Championships and Reserve Championships on her own horse.... A good note to send her off to school and retire him on.

    This was for the in hand sport horse classes.
    The sand was deep but thankfully Maddy is short and I'm short so it worked out. Barely.

    Not my cup of tea, but I better practice for my vet checks. LOL
