How did everyone do?
Pics are a must!!!
My Friesian Filly went Reserve Champion in the Any Other Registered Breed. I'm not sure what took longer, getting the horse ready for the show or getting all the dust and dirt off myself when I got home. Great show though. Well done to the organisors. A big thank you.
Thanks to the organisers and there were lovely horses out there today!
Tess and I got:
3rd Best Presents
Couple of pics - not the best - poor husband was watching the 2 kids and being my photographer
TB results anyone???????)
Well wasnt Kimi's day at all today.
1st Show Pony

Thanks heaps to Jackie & Janine for showing her in her classes & Leanne for the lift there and home...
Congrats to everyone else.
How did the Arabs and Part breds do?
Just took Bella today, glad I did as I had such a nice time with her she was such a good girl
3rd Mini Pony Yearling
1st Buckskin Yearling
Reserve Champion Buckskin Mare/Filly
Was a great turnout of Buckskins too, there was 6 mares/fillies compared to the last few shows where there was only 1 or 2!! So very happy with her results from that class.
Missed our AORP class by a few minutes.
Had a great day apart from the wind (got so much sand in my eyes!) thanks to the organisers, helpers etc it was a nice show )
Had a good day after a rocky start! Was great to see such a strong line up of Warmbloods! Molly went 3rd Best Presented Warmblood, 2nd Warmblood Filly to a very nice filly, then Kiara showed her for 1st Best Presented AORB, 1st AORB Filly, and Champion Filly/Mare.
I took Noddi down but he got stressed with all of the other horses so I put him in a yard and let him relax instead of putting him through competing. It did him a lot of good and he settled a heap. He decided not to go on the float and I was so over it, HUGE thanks to Roanna who gave us a helping hand *
I have photos coming.
WOW Tess has filled out and grown up so much!!! I remember seeing her when she was much younger (Perhaps 2 years ago? At the youngstock show?) and she looked so different. She looks amazing! Contrats on your results ) .
Congratulations Teddie1980, She is looking great and looks just like her dad!!!
Unfortunatly couldn't make it as ended up with no babysitters maybe next time.

well done to all others for their results and thanx to the judge in ring 6 for giving the advice and helping everybody out. Very much Appreciated **)
I didn't have such a good time at all. After my week, I shouldn't be suprised lol. The judges were very nice and very helpful *
Thanks to Saph and her 'team' too for putting up with me and my whinging and filling out my forms, helping me with make-up and tails when I was shaking too much Phoebe was great, she really looked after me, showed me the ropes of what I was supposed to do. I wasn't well at all, and she kept giving me kisses and cuddles all day
It was great to see a few buckskins
I dont know much about breed showing, but it seems pretty pointless to me to be the only one in a class or a very small class and win everything against no one. To me there would be no sense of achievement. Maybe breed showing isnt for me, for the other classes that I entered apart from buckskin, it seemed like I was paying $10 for a ribbon without really deserving or earning it.
I've come home with 5 less toenails (I dont even know how as I never got stepped on), a face full of dust, sore teeth from chattering and feeling like I just got off a very spinny ride LOL. Leaning over the rails and on Pheebs was the only thing that kept me from stacking it haha. That'll learn me for not following doctors orders. I just spent about 5mins staring at the TV remote trying to find the air-con temp!! Sooo not with it hahahaha
Its a shame that you feel this way Gemgem, you will find that this will also happen in hacking as well, so its not just breed shows. You may be the only one in your ridden class. A judge DOES NOT have to award a first place ribbon or any ribbon at all if they think the horse is not worthy of the placing. So dont look at it as paying $10 for a ribbon, look at it as you put the time and effort into presenting your horse to the judge and that is your reward for owing such a fine creature. The judge obviously thought she was worthy of the placing.
Yes you do get more satisfaction knowing that you may have beaten other horses if there was more in the class but that is just the nature of the game we play, one week you might be the only horse in the ring, another ring you might have more to compete with.
Be happy with the fact that your horse behaved well and looked after you as you said, it is very much a social day out with your horse so hopefully next time you will enjoy if a bit better.
What a great turn out !
