in which I win high point

The District 9 CGA Show was both days last weekend, and Mr. Wonderful and I won High Point for FC. In case you are wondering that means Future Champion and is the "slowest" category. But please note that slow = control and that is what we are aiming for here. Senior Handsome outdid himself... really responsive yet not too jumpy, easy on the rating and just a little bit of turnin' it on for the big finishes... occasionally even with a nice loose rein. Yes those jeans make me look fat.

Nice Dad won Reserve in FC, and I was so proud. Sparky gave up wondering why those barrels didn't move around like cows and just accepted his lot. My husband kept his heels down and his enthusiasm up for a long weekend: ride, tie up and watch, ride, tie up and watch, water, ride, repeat. So fun!!!

This little cowgirl was the star of the show, securely mounted on her trusty little fireball. I just about burst my snaps watching her loping ever so sweetly and taking better care Little P. than I do after a long day of teaching. Together they came away with Reserve High Point in FC 11 and under.

The hats were our prizes and you better believe we've been wearing them for four days straight. Do we look like mountain people here or what?!

Now we have been convinced to attend the State Show at the end of July. Word of the week: practice.
