No goats this year. Horses. We learned about a whole new section of humanity; Horse People.
Wakiya was washed and primped.
Mary was washed and primped. We drove to the fairgrounds. Mary showed Wakiya in a Showmanship class.
She placed fifth. Please don't count the contestants.
She showed her instructor's horse, Bucky, in English Equitation and English Pleasure.
She placed 4th and 2nd, respectively.
She did OK. She was satisfied with her placings, and knows where she needs to improve. She was, overall, proud of herself. And so are we.
She was disappointed, however, when the drizzle of morning became the pouring rain of afternoon. Classes were cancelled, keeping her and Wakiya from competing in the costume contest as a knight and her valiant steed.
