HER FIRST SHOW

What an amazing day!! Kirsten's first horse show - we are all finally coming down off the adrenaline rush. She did amazingly well for her first show - and received a Fifth Place ribbon. We were all thrilled!!Kirsten with "Know No Limits"
Absolutely hysterical!! We need a life size print of this one! Always keep a sense of humor - and remember to brush your teeth!!

I'm so excited to see the pics! I know about that adrenaline rush! You hold your breath the whole time and can hear your heart pounding in your ears. Most of Nicole's shows were in a quiet arena and all I could hear was my heart! I'm so glad she had a good time and she will treasure that ribbon forever. Cute horse, too!
