Day Three at the Fair

Yes, I realize that Day Three was actually yesterday. I plead exhaustion--up at 5:00 a.m., out the door at 6:00 a.m., back home for 30 minutes or so in the mid-afternoon, and then home for good about 11:00 p.m.). And actually, you'll only get the first half of Day Three in this post. Stay tuned...

Daughter # 3 showed in her first 4H horse show yesterday (her second show ever). She cleaned her horse up the day before and blanketed her so that she would stay tidy. She did stay clean, mostly, but we did need to do some last minute touch-up once we got to the show. Doesn't she look nice?

There is a lot of waiting at horse shows, in my very limited experience. Good thing we brought chairs and food and water. Too bad we didn't bring sunblock. Oh-oh!

Daughter showed in halter class:

Western horsemanship:

And trail class (which is like an obstacle course):

Lots of fun, and they both did fabulously. We don't think the horse has ever been shown before, and daughter is a beginner, too. So we were pleased that in Novice class (the very beginning show classes), they took a first and a second place.

Hooray! What a day...
