Steeped in tradition...that is what I think about when I think of both showing American Saddlebreds and showing aside. I believe that is one reason I was so nervous about showing for the first time. I just wanted to do it with dignity. In keeping with that thought, this is the photograph I will be using for the ad that will be run in Saddle and Bridle magazine in November. As you can see, it will be done with a sepia finish.
When I selected certain things to use for my show, I chose to wear a Cameo ring belonging to my Mother, a Garnet pin belonging to my Grandmother and I tucked a beautiful lace handkerchief into the offside pocket in my saddle that belonged to both.
I hope you enjoyed my journey. My deepest wish is that maybe my adventures will encourage someone else to learn this amazingly elegant sport and share their experience with me!
