We'll be going home tomorrow and I'm ready as are the horses. Lots of wonderful horses here at the Show, but boy the lack of courtesy, kindness and just plain being a good sport isn't always evident!
We had the chance to watch a few of the trainers, and the list is getting slimmer on which I would use. Rudeness out of the ring, or borderline horse abuse - not acceptable here!
Roger placed 3rd in his class, we were hoping for Top Five, so can't complain. I do think he was better than the 2nd place horse, but two of the three judges didn't! It would have been nice to have had a Reserve in his height class. I guess we should have worked out a plan for his showing this year, instead of this being only the second show and the second time he's left our property!
Everyone seems relieved the show is over - it's been a long few days - but we're having a good dinner together.
