    How did you go Oldhack?

    Me & Ali took the ponies for the Leadline events, shame we were the only entrants.

    Sprite & her rider got 4 firsts, she was a bit of an impatient pony though & the nipping started, but am still happy with her.
    The judge was great towards the 2 kids, very encouraging. :)

    Any other stockies there riding?

    Duds was a little ratbag.....he was humpy when I first started riding him..... I am sure he thought the utes backed up in front of the ring were opening their trays to gobble up all the horses.... :D :D All in all could be payback for waking him up at 3am..... *#) :D

    It took him 3 classes to settle down and work but never got the normal Dudley out of him....... :(

    Had a good giggle when Sharla asked me if he was a new one I was bringing out......well the way he behaved Im not suprised......LOL

    The quality of some of the horses there was beautiful........ and the friendliness was so lovely...... Really really nice people!

    Won my rider - shock horror!!!

    Dud's went champion galloway and was beaten by a stunning bay hack for Supreme...... I cant remember his name but he is going to make an amazing hack........ his owners were the loveliest people!

    I was googly eyed at the utes last year lol. Did the harness horses stay off the arena till the hacking had finished this year. Last year I went to watch Tarz and the unofficial hadnt finished and on come the harness horses and ponies lol.

    It was great to see the numbers at York. Apparently if poor numbers they were going to can the horses. Can't now. YAY Massive harness entries too.
    The hack was Roman Estate and he's a stunner!!!**)
    We had a good day with our mobile ugg boot Waterford Showscene (aka Buzz). Blasted pony won't drop his coat this year.Grrrr.
    Ended up with Champion Show Hunter Hack. Geez he was stuffed after his workout. Poor boy had Avon Valley next day too.
