So… I really failed at getting pictures this weekend. This is partly because I brought my smaller camera (indoor lighting + shaky hands = blurry photos HOORAY) and partly because I was more focused on paying attention to classes and whatnot.
Oh, and that in person I’m reallllly shy/socially awkward. :]
BUT, I did get a few performance pictures!
Being around other hobbyists and being able to see dozens and dozens of gorgeous horses was both exciting and a bit overwhelming! I loved it though – the show was great and I had a lot of fun. 🙂 My little group of horses did really well too… most of them placed, and I got at least one ribbon in every color which makes the collector in me happy.
Of course I don’t have photos of my horses on the table. 😄 But I did get some now that I’m home.
Azul placed first in OF Mustangs, then went on to champ in the stock breed division:
and Alborozo took first in stallions, then overall reserve in gender, winning a lovely mare and foal set:
I did attempt to show performance again, and stuck with two classes. My arabian costume entry placed first:
All in all, I learned a lot and am SO glad I decided to make the trip up there. And with a drive that looks like this…
I’d gladly make the trip again! 🙂
