    Smile Little show, big brag

    Maybe a medium brag. Today, we went to a small barn show at a barn not far from ours. Just DD and I went, but we had a blast. DD cantered her first courses on Wonder Pony, and had a big grin while doing it. She didn't get high ribbons, but had very nice rides and was proud of herself anyhow.

    I also took Mare, which we questioned when she had a Mare Meltdown tied to the trailer while HER pony was in the ring. I ended up taking her in the 2'6" classes (I've mostly chickened out this summer) and rocked them. It was so fun!

    I am so blessed to have a daughter I can share this with, an awesome trainer and two wonderful mares. Life is good.

    Congratulations!! I love to hear this kink of story. It is what riding should be about.

    It's tough to do it all, owner, driver, horse show mom, rider, exhibitor, and photographer! Totally understand!

    Keep us posted on your continued successes!!

    This is wonderful news, I am hoping to share many moments with my kid once she grows up a little. As far as the pics, I guess you have to go to another show! HAHAHA!
