Sorry- shameless brag for my Willie! new pictures #24
I don't have any idea how many of you even remember the saga of 'Willie/penile cancer surgeries/Cushings/2 founders" from about 3-4 years ago, but if there are any of you out there - I just have to let you know what we did this past Sunday......
TRAV show at the Virginia Horse Center :We got first place in an equitation class out of 6 riders.(first equitation class we have ever entered.) We got third place in the UPHA championship equitation class out of 11 riders ( and Art heard the ringmaster say to the judge ,"That was beautiful" in reference to our serpentine!!!!) :D
We got second place in the trail class out of ten riders. Willie ticked a few of the cavaletti going over them- have not practiced that for years.
We got a first place in our musical dressage test, riding to "Long Highway" by the Moody Blues - thought it quite appropriate for Willie- especially where they sing "No one could love you like I do.." :yes: (of course only one rider in that class, me LOL!!!!!!) with a score of 81.88% with nice comments!!! (Of course, the judge is a friend who I scribe for all the time, and she was VERY generous with her scores).
But still - not bad for a 23+ year old Arab and his 63 year old rider, if I do say so myself (which I evidently just did :lol:)
Willie and family are just too cool ! CONGRATULATIONS !!!! Talking about AO !
This wonderful horse, Willie and his owner and her DH continually make me smile and remain AO ~ :cool:
This is just SENSATIONAL at every level / dimension !
A Blue Ribbon group !
