My Punkin was in a horse show today - and I'm a proud momma! After today, I have developed quite a healthy fear of horses! What a nerve-wracking day. They are beautiful creatures, but so powerful! I don't know how these girls handle them so well. They really did a great job. She did get quite a case of the nerves today (understandably), and it almost got the better of her, but she pushed on and went out there and did her thing, and came in fifth place!
Here is dad giving her a quick final check....and then
She enters the dressage arena...
She did SUPER in dressage, and then headed over to the jumping arena..
Waiting her turn...
This is my Punkin with her best riding buddy!
Not a happy Punkin face! :(
But she conquered...and entered the jumping arena..
And had a fantastic run!
Going over the judges scores with her trainer.
Fifth place ribbon - (And it even matched her shirt)!
And best riding buddy received a third place ribbon!! Way to go girls - we are so proud of you!
