Home from expo

Sunday, September 15, 2013

We got home from state horse expo last night about 10:30. It was great to sleep in my on bed. Woke to rain this morning. That is not going to be good for unpacking and cleaning out the trailer.

Overall expo was great. It was the first time my daughter took her horse up there. She did not place in her riding events but overall I felt she did fine. They only place the top ten and the fewest she had in her classes was 27 and the most was upper 40s.

She got thru her trail class. She side passes over the flower box ok but then he started swatting at bugs and knocked it over. She had a little trouble backing through one obstacle. He did not hesitate on the waterbox. Her biggest problem was the gate. She hurt her leg on the gate. She got her foot caught in it and it bruised her thigh when it hit her.

In educational events she got a grand on the saddle pad she sewed, a reserve on her horse related photo and eight top tens on other items she did. She only had one photo that did not place.

In model horse she did well. She took overall reserve grand. In her classes she had a reserve and 13 top tens. She did not place in 4 classes.

    Sounds as if you had a very successful Expo! Congratulations to your daughter on all of her projects. I don't really know what the model horse thing is, wouldn't have any idea how it would be judged...... Great job! emoticon
