Fair Fun - Day 2

Well, Day two is done. Hot and sticky with no wind again, but its done. Its all downhill from here! Today J showed his horse. He did a great job! He placed 8th in showmanship - we NEVER practice so that was fine! Then he placed 3rd in Horsemanship (on the rider), 6th in pleasure (on the horse), 6th in Western Discipline (how well you follow commands) and 1st in reining! He had a great ride in reining and we knew he was either first or second. None of the other exhibitors did the pattern right, he was the only one! He totally kicked @$$ in that class! He did make it to the Championship show on Friday night. Our fair lets the 1, 2 and 3 placings go to Championship show where they then place the Reserve and Grand Champion! He was so excited after his ride, he knew he nailed it! Very awesome day!

J in Western Discipline

Tomorrow is an easy day. J has Honors band practice, then to fair to feed rabbits, he is then staying with the neighbor while she shows, barn duty from 2-3. Then he will be picked up by Rich and I will take him to Peninsula for CC. I will probably catch up on my blog reading then. Hope everyone has a great night!
