The most fun I have had a horse show in a long time was this past weekend in Longmont!
The show was well run by the Mountains and Plains Appaloosa Club and the horses performed well. Lucy took the Jr. Ranch Trail Class and got nice high scores and two points in the process, and Atti won the buckle in the All Breed Ranch competition, but what really made it fun was the people!
Judith (Atti’s owner) and I drove together and we caravanned with Nancy and and JoEllen. It was nice to have a group for the 400 mile drive, and Judith and Nancy can both put the pedal to the metal (whereas I tend to drive like an old granny) so the travel time was not too too bad.
Christy came up Saturday night, showed all day Sunday with us (and was reserve high point in the ranch horse competition) and then drove home, somehow, Sunday night. Judith, Nancy and I stayed until Monday morning. We left at 5 am and I made to my office hours and the micro bio lab I teach at the college on time in the afternoon!
Jordyn drove down from Ft.Collins on Sunday and she and her friends and hung out all day and stayed to assist in the pack up of all the stuff (so much stuff!) so we could get on the road early the next morning!
Here are a couple of pictures!
JoEllen and Mocha. They did really well in ranch rail and ranch conformation!! And had a fine time with an unexpected crazy sunbeam in ranch riding!
