    So....we got back from the AQHA Level 1 champ show in Ohio today at 2 PM.....a nice long 12 hour drive! We got there on Tuesday, I rode my BUTT off....like 3-4 15/20 practice rides everyday. We showed at the World Equestrian center which is quite the place!!

    I did Aged Halter Geldings on Friday, 28 in the class and ended up 17th. It was triple judged and I was on 2 of the judges cards, and I missed be a finalist by a couple of points. No biggie!

    Saturday I showed Rookie Amateur WP.....33 in the class, and 2 cuts. I was in cut 2 and had a good ride. I got called back for the final and after THAT ride (in which I thought my legs would quit on me...lol)....I placed in the Top Ten (10th place out of 16 finalists). I was SO excited....and here's the vid!

    Here's the backdrop picture from the show. I'm still exhausted...LOL!! Next show...there's a big MQHA show in my state this week, but we're sitting this one out. So, we're going to do an AQHA show in a few weeks that has a $4000 added Green WP Stakes. One of my trainer will ride Roger in it. It would be nice to come home with a couple of bucks!!

    That is a great photo. Man can you tell by all these faces what a thrill it was. I'm thrilled for you.

    Winning is like being rich is opposed to being poor.. it doesn't suck. (y)
