Down East Congres, Skowhegan, ME
« on: June 16, 2017, 06:44:19 pm »

The show started at 6pm.  We were in the 2nd class, Open Pleasure Driving.   Three in the class, including my trainer with the World Champion Driving Fresian mare Serena.  We pulled 2nd had a GREAT drive  The saddlebred we beat was not a happy Professional trainer.  LOL.  Happy with Ace.
Tomorrow we have a pretty full day with Sammi doing the riding and Me driving again.  Then more on Sunday.  The weather is cold, damp and raining, but it's all good.  Stay tuned.

A fun filled day 2.
So, here we go
Danny showed in STB in Hand and won, just a super job, Ace showed really well.
Sammi and Ace did the following:
!st in STB 2 Gait, 7th in walk trot EQ and 3rd in Walk Trot Pleasure.  I am so very proud of her.
Ace and I pulled a REs Champ in Open Pleasure Driving. He was even better tonight.  Got lots of compliments on him all day long.
Tomorrow is STB 2 gait Champ, Family class and STB in harness.  I am really happy with this show.

It's Monday and I drove down this am (5 hrs)  There will be pictures as soon as somebody sends me some  LOL
So, Sunday Sammi, Champ STB 2 gait, we got 4th in family class, 5th walk trot EQ,  Res Champ Walk Trot Pleasure.  He is a tough ride and she rides him well, but he is not an EQ robot.

I won STB in harness and we had a blast as they ask you to turn them lose and drive him I did.  LOL  I still have that need for speed and so does he. 
I'm thinking we are done for the summer and will show again this fall.
Sam has 3 weeks of horse camp plus a lesson a week so she will still be with her horse.
We got so many compliments and one of the teenage show riders looks Sam up to tell her how impressed she was with her riding.  It is really cool that others see her talent.  Yep I'm a very proud Grandma and so happy that Mike and I are able to do this for her.

Thank you Chris.  I love driving my war horse, he is tuned up like a sports car.  Just a blast to drive.

yes Kysa we are so happy we can do this for her and I hope she continues it as she gets older. 
When I get some shots that I can figure out how to post I will do that.
