    With the 2009 season drawing to an end, let's have a quick flash back of your best show highlight......

    Mine would of been when my 10yr old daughter won her 1st Garland with her Foundy Pony Equus Park Rain Cloud AKA Sprite at our 2009 Feature Show back in March, her face was just priceless & we both shed a few tear's together. Another was Sandy Edge winning 2009 High Point Stud, also our Small Horse Filly Wildflower Shameless Love taking out High Point Miniature of the Show. 1st show back for Bridale Allura AKA Ali Poo`z, after becoming a Mum she took of GRAND CHAMPION PINTO 10.2hh's & under as the 2009 Pinto States, this girl is my pride & joy. OK so that was 4, whoops..... That is our best highlight's for 2009.

    Not in the show ring, was the birth of our 1st bred miniature colt Sandy Edge Bound for Glory AKA BJ........

    What a fantastic season PL, congrats to you and your daughter!

    Ours may not be a huge acheivement to alot of people but ive only ever shown for 2 seasons due to having my son so consider myself a complete novice still. I had my fingers crossed we would win a supreme this season as we havent won one before. Well last month it happened :) and to make it a million times more special for us it was with our first homebred foal Bella.
    She won Supreme Buckskin Exhibit at the Pinjarra All Breeds against some lovely "big" horses a very proud moment for us. We love our girl to bits and she has done so great for us this season bringing home a heap of sashes. Such a thrill showing a pony you have bred yourself we just enjoy being out and about with her but to do well too has made us very proud owners indeed :)

    Our baby "Timberline Diamond Doll" aka Bella

    My 2009 highlight was accually getting to do any show on my new horse and to see how far he had come since having him at the beginning of March. And getting to my first Perth show **)

    I have two highlights as well :)

    First was winning Grand Champion Dilute, Runner up 3yo and Runner up Supreme of Supremes at Bibs and Booties in May with Diva. Ending up with 2 lovely garlands, a rosette and several lovely sashes, as well as a brilliant diamante and pearl browband!

    Then to top that winning Champion Ridden Palomino at Perth Royal again with Diva. Particularly as I came very close not to going as Diva still had her winter coat (still does although it is nearly out :p ) and I managed to be very sick the day before. It was her second ridden outing and she is green as grass still and not only did she win but she behaved soooo well :)*

    Still one more show for us for the year in 2 weekends time, then Diva gets a well earned break :)

    Aww PS that is so awsome, when one of your own bred babies does you so proud...

    The highlights of my Year (I have a few lol)

    - Winnie got top 10 out of 30 horses in a dressage test.
    - We jumped for the first time ever and placed third in the series
    - We did our first ever Ag show and got Reserve Champion
    - Winnie got Reserve Champion at Gosnells out of a good number of nice horses I was stoked.
    - and Lastly he placed in his age Class at the States with also some nice horses in the ring

    He has matured into a nice young man and I am proud...

    I would love to win a supreme or a Garland one day but if I don't I still love my boy to bits.

    Our show season is finished now, 2010 is going to be focused on ARC and ridden shows no matter how messy it looks. Breed Shows are taking a back burner in 2010. (Except the 3 Arab shows of course)

    Mine hasnt been winning ribbons... but I have had some very successful lessons this year and taz has really come along this year, and i think my riding has too. Hopefully next year we will get into the show ring and maybe win a ribbon (or get one for trying LOL)...

    Oh and I did and endurance ride (albeit 20kms) but i had never done it before and i really enjoyed it. It was nice to try out a differen equine discipline!

    So yeah no ribbons for me but Im still pleased with how things have gone!

    Maxntaz, I would love to ride a 20km endurance ride. Achievements in the year don't have to come with ribbons....well done:p**)

    Himitsu...Congratulations, what an amazing looking team you are.

    My highlights...

    Going to my first ever WAAHA show, with my first ever p/b arab and taking out supreme senior arabian !!!
    that has been and always will be the highlight of my show career! as I didn't buy Midas for showing... but after that I was hooked lol :p

    Winning State champ halter horse... BUT the fact that he went for his first BIG ridden show and BEAHAVED, DID EVERTHING THAT WAS ASKED OF HIM... and got placed in massive line up of well and truely seasoned ridden show horses... was fantasic too!!!

    OH and I forgot Little Duke... He just blows me away that guy, Took him to states and even though he didn't get a ribbon he was a winner to me, he took everything like a pro!!!

    Agreed Maree4 :)* With the Royal the biggest thrill was how she behaved, the ribbon was just the icing on the cake :)*

    Maybe we will join you for an endurance ride next year **) Diva and I have so far tried breed halter and ridden, dressage, will give team penning a go this weekend (albeit training not competition) and will start jumping next year - so endurance sounds like a plan as well *#)
