i went for looksie, took couple pics was nice to meet kylie her ponies look fab
I'm home and very pleased with Fanty Boy. He took the experience in his stride and was very well behaved for his first big show and first time indoors. My aim today was to come along, and have him behave and enjoy the experience, and that we did!
I was thrilled he placed in all 3 of his classes, finalist in his gelding class, classic trot, and classic head.
Thanks Nikiwink and Beth for your help this morning, and AAH for showing him in his trot and head classes (I showed him in his gelding class then handed him to AAH to put her fast legs on for the trot class...)
A couple of pics....
You forgot to post results Magic!!
I was mostly happy with Nova today
Very happy with her first class... she behaved like a star and took out State Champion Female Quality Trot! Out of a big class with some very nice movers as well.
Was also a finalist in Female Quality head which we only did for the experience of standing still in a large class
Then she was a PITA for her Anglo Filly 2&3yo class although ended up being the only one competing so was still awarded State Champion 2&3yo Anglo filly
She is now in the paddock getting soaked. Although weather at the show had been great
Congrats on your results Magic and Mirawee. ) (Although Magic, could you eleborate a little more on your placings please )
Have to say that Fanty has come up a treat Magic after the problems and setbacks he's had. Looks like he's well and truly back on track now ! **)
Thanks Zaza, yes he doesn't look half bad now! Thanks for noticing
OK more details are wanted....
Finalist in partbred gelding 4 and over, which I was happy with considering the competition were all extremely nice horses...
Finalist in arabian derivative male quality trot, called out as the third finalist in a class of 18ish.

congrates on everyones results
Well done guys, Mirrawee I saw Nova in the head & trot classes, well done!
I had a great time at the show, went down Friday and camped the night, I realise last week that i really should have gotten my girls feet trimmed closer to the show, not used to the sand around here! And my chances of getting a farrier at that point were mute so I was prepared to take my chances with crappy toes, but when I arrived & spotted a farrier trimming feet and thought I would try my luck the farrier ended up being pro-handler Sean Chapman, so a massive thanks to him for the last minute fix, quickest and neatest farrier job I have seen in quite a while **) thanks heaps!
Huge thanks also to Bethy for her awesome plait job, Kazz rubbed half her mane out over the last few months and there really wasn't much to work with, but Beth being the miracle worker that she is pulled off the most perfect fake plaits ever *
And of course a huge thank you Anthony Geyteman who did a great job showing Kazz in her Arabian Pony Mare 4yrs and over and Derivative Mare Quality Trot class.
I took her in the Quality Head class myself, and we came home with Finalist placing in all 3 classes entered
Was great to catch up with alot of people and I really miss the Arab show scene, has been 5yrs since I competed at the states lol
No pics yet tho!
OMG Mel!!! Fanty looks AWESOME! You have done such a great job with him **) Massive congrats on your results! **)
Congrats to everyone else as well )

Thanks Gaia. I am so happy with him!
stormie you should be so proud of little Hero!! He looked sooooo good today, and his trot in Quality Trot was amazing!!! I had no doubt at all that he'd make the finalists list!!
What a great day and some gorgeously cool weather!! Beautiful horses and presentation!! LOVED it
Can't wait for the rest of the Stockies to reveal their results!!
What are the purebred results? Champion colt and stallion I'm most interested in!
Purebred halter is on tomorrow Sherridin. The only classes they had today were dressage and a few of the miscellaneous ridden classes
What a great show!! Brayside Shakira won State Champion Arabian Riding Pony Mare 4 years and over - I was so happy as this is the 4th year in a row she has won this prestigious event!! (and she has just turned 4 )))
Huge thanks to alll the hard work that the WAHAA Committe have done to run a fantastic show!!! **)
Thanks to judges, all the helpers and of course the sponsors!!
Thanks to Brayside Stud for their sponsorship of my win )
Congratulations to all the other winners, there were certainly some beautiful horses there today!!!**)

congrats to everyone that went and Thanks to WAAHA and sponsors for the show my results for Shangrala Standing Ovation are State Champion part bred gelding, Reserve state champ Trot and Finalist for head class. Both head and trot class had approx 18 horses so was happy for 3 classes for 3 placings had my camera for pics so not that great but here goes hehehe

Well one day down for me!
My first and last class were with Talquah Zillionaire.
First finalist in Arabian Derivative shown by a youth
Reserve champ derivtive youth hunter
I also showed Fantom in 2 classes for Mel (magic), which was great fun!
Congrats everyone. There was heaps of lovely horses and ponies there today.
I had a rather busy time, ended up plaiting 6 horses, plus doing a few extra tail plaits/quartermarks etc.
Congratulations to all of my Nags To Riches clients. From what I saw everyone either won or placed in their classes (must have been the plaits ).
Magic... you should be super proud of Fanta Pants. He was such a good boy and took it all in his stride
