The “Magical Mini Show” on April 29 & 30, hosted by IMHC, was our start into this years show season. Due to our seemingly never ending winter the horses were not in as good a condition as hoped but they still did their very best.
Amy was shining in all her classes (Hunter and Western Country Pleasure Driving / Classic Pleasure Driving) and again brought home a lot of ribbons. Magic needs to have a much better condition but nonetheless she did show very well. And for Fleurie (Modello STR Bailamos Firenze) it was the very first show ever. Everything was so exciting and she was so nervous that she forgot to eat. So she lost what little weight and condition she had and only looked half as good as before. But we are sure that with more time she will become more confident and can handle the stress much better.
Last but not least we are super happy and proud of PJ. For her it was also the first competition ever. Her nerves were better after a training session on double reins in the morning where she could see that ring banners are not that scary and that there are also no mini-eating monsters lurking in the shadows ;-). She did beautifully in her class and was rewarded with a fantastic second place in Country Pleasure Driving.
