A few weeks back I took William to his first hunter show. We showed in the Novice division which was for horses or riders in their first year of showing. We had 2 flat classes and a cross rails class. I had some wicked video evidence of this day but sadly the Mr dropped my video camera in the pool after the show and that was the end of that. If anyone knows where I can pick another one up cheap - let me know!
William was a super pony, well mannered and did a bang up job in the ring. We placed 4th, 3rd, and 2nd in our classes, only beat out by some seasoned hunters carting some fine little kidlet riders around. Damn those kids, they are always near impossible to beat!
It was a great day, and I think William enjoyed showing his stuff over fences. To bad there is no proof....no, I'm not bitter about the camera ;) I hope to do a bunch more hunter shows with him this year. Since there are no pictures of us, I will share the pictures of all my friends showing in the real divisions that day. It was a gorgeous hot day and since it has been raining for almost 2 weeks straight it seems like an eternity ago. Please come back sunny horse show weather!
