Adult Hack Day - May 2009
a new clip job, saddle and browband we headed out for our first
hack day in many many months.
results in the W/T/C ring were:
1st Best Presented
2nds and 3rds in my rider class, height, weight and hunter classes.
warmed up nicely on a chilly morning but wasn't his usual self in
the ring. We muddled through the classes and in the hunter class
he just didn't want to go forward. Then as we lined up after out
workout he stretched forward and did a massive pee! After that he
was back to his normal self, worked beautifully in the gelding class,
even better in the champion class (which we won against 5 other
horses!!) and then super in the supreme class as well! Poor bugger...
he was busting!!
you just love the silver colour he's gone this year when I clipped
him!! How often do you see a chestnut go silver!! And there is no
makeup on his legs... that's just the colour they are!!
thanks to Mel from Magic Browbands for our new browband and bib-vest,
I really love this combination on him!!
thanks to Michelle for being my personal strapper and photographer.
I'd like to say a special congratulations to Mel with her gorgeous
old boy Omar. Omar was brought out of a 7 year retirement the day
before when her mare went lame, given a bath, plaited up and off
to the show. He stepped off the float, realised where he was and
the look on the face was like "it's about time you took me
to a show!!". He went out there and blitzed the W/T ring, coming
home with Champion!! Go Mel and Omar!!!!
