    Juliet was not feeling it today. She was so bad I couldn't believe it. Not sure what her problem is but she definitely earned her poop brown ribbon! Oh well.

    Me, too, Laurie. It's too bad we don't have enough time ever to really get our horses to relax and hang out in the venues that upset them or upset their apple carts!

    Every horse has a bad day Laurie. Says something that she STILL placed at such a big and prestigious venue. Loving seeing the breeding on these results! Congrats to all the COTHers!

    This was nowhere near as disappointing as her second place finish last year believe it or not. It's all good.

    Would one say there is a notable amount of dressage blood present?

    She is very pretty, I never noticed that she was bad or any worse than anyone else ? It is just horse showing, sometimes you do good sometimes you don't ... just the subjectivity of hunters. She is lovely and you should be proud she is yours :-)

    We scratched ours because the trainer he lives with (who does not do the HB stuff) said while he is gorgeous he was not fat enough for Devon. But we went anyways to cheer for our friends.

    That's exactly what Mr. Wheeler, who has Fanfare, said of him; that he wasn't quite fat enough, though lovely when standing still (seldom). We scratched him a few weeks ago, and hope to head toward Warrenton now.

    I am proud of her, I am just surprised and disappointed she chose this day to lose her manners. She was back on her haunches with her head in the air and/or turning around the whole time the first judge looked at her then leaped through the air sideways instead of jogging. You can't judge what you can't see. She is generally a very good girl, this is way out of character.

    Oh Laurie, I can feel your frustration! I show my youngsters in-hand too and some behave beautifully and others are an embarrassment! At my last show I took a 2yo colt with plenty of shows behind him (as a foal and yearling). He stood on his hind legs for most of the class. After the class he turned back to his usual placid donkey state. I cannot tell you how annoyed I was. But I have to laugh - youngsters are unpredictable little beasts sometimes

    VB stopped too early....I was 10th in the amateur handler! First time ever showing in a hunter breeding class and first time ever showing my yearling colt...a bit ambitious to start at Devon but it was fun and I'm so thrilled to have been in the final line up out of a HUGE class!

    That was a crazy tough class, congrats! I was trying to figure out how that was judged. I couldn't tell if they were judging the handler or just judging it like a normal class except with amateur handlers. In the end it looked like they were judging the horse.

    Congrats Bays on a successful result your first time in Ammy Handler! The class at Devon is always the largest of the year and that ring can be intimidating (for the two and four-legged)!

    We are on our way home from our first foray to Devon. I was exceedingly proud of our babies. We brought three horses and had three top three placings! Rapscallion 18 (Spanky) was 2cd in the non tb yearling colts and geldings. It was a thrill to watch Mr. Wheeler show him. Our two year old filly Reverie 18 (Pebbles) was 3rd and our three year old filly Rubaiyat 18 (Sprout) was also 3rd in her class. We had an excellent time there but the babies will be happy to back home in their pastures.
