Getting her hair and make up done. All the riders from this barn wore a red turtle neck and a sweat shirt with the farm logo on it.
waiting for her turn to ride and cheering her friends on.
waiting to mount..
making adjustments - Daddy is right there doing all he can while Mommy is behind the camera.
She is a natural... Cool as a cucumber!
...and her class is called....
Mommy was too busy watch the class and cheering to take pictures... I totally understand that!!
...and NOT a bad take for her very first horse show. She showed 2 times - each time with 4 in her class. In the first class, Academy Performance (judging the horse) Madison placed 4th. Second class was Academy Equitation (judging the rider) and she placed first!! It was a walk trot class and she had to post on the correct diagnals.
We are so proud of you Madison and I can't wait to see you show in April!
