We will, we will, ROCK YOU!

Can you tell by the title we had a GOOD weekend? Let's see, we took 8 horses and came home with over 20ish points (I quit counting at some point)... Kevin and Elaine were big winners on her horse Sable. Kevin was 2nd and 3rd in the Green Western Pleasure, 1st and 2nd in Senior Western Pleasure and Elaine is still UNDEFEATED in Novice Amateur Western Pleasure. Kevin finished up an ROM (Register of Merit which means he put 10 points on the horse beating at least 50 other people), this increases the horse's value...so it's a GOOD THING! We also got 2 offers of purchase for the same horse, one was flat turned down and the other is an open ended "when you're ready to sell, call me..." LOL...so we know we're on to something. What really makes this winning so sweet is that K had this horse 5 years ago when she was only 2, and really only showed her 3 times and had a trainer tell him, "that one's never gonna make it!"...that same trainer 5 years later asks "what's that?"...never remembering that this was the one that "wasn't gonna make it". HA!
This is what undefeated looks like! :)

My showmanshippers ROCKED! Charlotte won under both judges in her Novice Amateur class, Janet was 1st in her Select Amateur Class, Kaytlyn was 2nd & 4th in her Novice Youth class and then came back to be 4th & 6th in the 14-18 class...which is a BIG deal because she placed RIGHT BEHIND WORLD/CONGRESS Champions...and this was the 2nd show she's showed this horse at...pretty nifty! And let's not forget our newest student Sydney, who was 4th & 6th in Novice Youth and who showed her tail end off... I'm so proud of all of them, they really stood up and showed for all their classes!
So we all came home happy and tired...even the horses...they are pretty much sleeping today away!
