HAPPY ANNIVERSARY!

I can't believe it! A year ago today i was driving to El Dorado Hills to pick up Nevada and Midge. Midge got adopted soon after the Expo... and i still have Nevy. I am actively looking for a home for him, can't keep him forever. :( But every chance i get to spend with him is so lovely! He is making great progress and the students LOVE to work with him.

WE WON!!

Sorry i don't have any pics or video uploaded yet but i will by Monday or Tuesday. Im tired!!

I was shocked and amazing when my name was called in our division. We were in the Elite catigory(moved from Ground Me because of our challenges), which was for the mustangs going under saddle. But almost half of the mustangs wern't going to be ready to be ridden by the expo so they decided to make a sub catigory for ground only. They gave 1st, 2nd, and 3rd to ridden mustangs(all amazing!) and then we got 1st place out of all the ground work elites!! We won a throphy and prize money, both of which will be coming in the mail. I am just so overwhelmed, and EXCITED to get home and learn as much as i can before next year!

And the Showcase was fab. as well! hegot to show off his skill on the platform and the gate while 6 other horses were around us doing the poles and balls.

Midge got ponied in from a golf cart, then we got to play with the ball, tarp, barrels and a little jump. It was tons of fun! I have video but won't be able to post until after this weekend as my dad has the camera with all that on it.

Tomorrow is our last day of compitition! We have a performance routine at around 10:00am then we just have to sti back and find somone to adopt them!

We are here!

We arrived at around 4:00pm and got everything settled in. Navy and I walked around and he got to meet a lot of the volunteers. Midge got hadned off to a youth volunteer and they walked her out for me.

From 7:00-9:00 we got to go out and practice for the showcase. LOTS of standing around at the in gate and waiting for your turn to go out to the arena, but they are both taking everything in stride. Nevy is a bit nervous about on the concrete and man-hole covers but is getting used to them.

Neither of the horses like being in their stalls, but i think once they have been in overnight they will settle down more.

Time for bed! LOOONG day tomorrow!
