I Can't Stop Grinning...

..because last night I attended the Texas American Saddlebred Association High Point Awards Banquet.... where Oliver and I were awarded 2 Reserve Champion awards in our division!!! If you have read my blog, you know that the only time I garnered a blue ribbon was when I was the only one in the class...IOW - I was NOT an accomplished sidesaddle rider. I usually placed last or next to last, BUT - show I did. I kept at it and rode in almost every single class I could, which is why I ended up with enough points to bring home these awards. The header picture is from the very first show we did in Dallas. I love you Oliver!..for being such a great sport and putting up with me.
