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. XD 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:
I was able to enter some horses in novice gender classes, where my Roxy (aka Shadow Dancer) took first in mares,
Phantom took second in geldings,
and Alborozo took first in stallions, then overall reserve in gender, winning a lovely mare and foal set:
I’m still excited about all that. XD
I did attempt to show performance again, and stuck with two classes. My arabian costume entry placed first:
And my second entry in western games (pole bending) came in sixth (I need to re-work it, hahaha) but that is still LOADS better than my first attempt at performance showing!
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! 🙂

Nichelle, your photos ARE nice and I am so proud of you fro the Arabian Costume class 1st place! You others did nicely too.
Thanks for the photos! And congratulations on your awesome wins! You totally kicked butt 🙂
Congrats on your wins! That they used red for first and light blue for second is so foreign to me. Is that a Canadian thing?
I think so… I believe the UK uses red for first as well, but some of the other colors are switched around. 🙂
Oooh, that looked like such a good show! I love the second jumping horse and that cow themed jump is inspired! XD
Stunning scenery too!
