This past weekend, my mama was in town and we played with the horses all weekend. Since I took Monday off to hang out with her, I only just realized I forgot to do a Tuesday post, so…sorry about that! Tomorrow ought to be a bit more exciting, but I’m not quite finished with photo stuff.
In the mean time, I wanted to share some fun upcoming activities. At the end of the month, I will be in Virginia again to visit my parents and see my baby horses. On Friday the 29th, we’ll actually be at the Lexington Spring Premiere show to show both of them in their respective breeding classes, and I’ll also be doing Stellar in an Amateur Handler class (squeeee!). I know there are a lot of bloggers in the VA, MD, PA area so if you happen to be at the show, I’d love to meet you and introduce you to my sweet baby horses!
On that note, it seems that there aren’t a lot of resources on Amateur Handler classes, so you can be sure that will be its own blog post once I’ve done it, but in the mean time, does anyone have any guidance? I do know that, unlike the typical breeding classes, it is judged based on turn out and how well you set your horse up and whatnot, rather than solely on confirmation. The class is meant as a way to get the owners of young horses to still feel like they are involved and having fun with their young horse, even though they have pros doing them in their breeding classes. The fun part is that points still go to the horse instead of the rider, so if we get anything it will go toward Stellar’s HOTY points. Last year she just missed out on an award, so I’ll take all the points we can get!
If you’re near the Appomattox area, maybe we can even plan a meet up nearby to ride and play with baby horses. Goodness knows they are starved for attention.
