My Happy List: Horse Show Weekend

Tuesday, October 30, 2012

This is my last week of hosting My Happy List for Mamarazzi.  I appreciate all of you who've participated this month.

My Happy List

Horse Shows are fun, and they always make me happy!


Three of the younger riders at our barn.

Shelley had a horse show at her home barn this weekend, and what a brisk, cool day for showing horses!

Shelley showed Willie, and he did much better than expected.  Shelley looked fantastic!  She has such poise, and a great seat.

Shelley and two of her friends who came to watch

Here is a short video of Shelley and Willie on one of their trips.

Shelley placed second twice and fourth once.  She has much more "blue" on her wall, but we weren't expecting much from Willie.  He actually exceeded our expectations!

Please link-up today.  I want to read your Happy List!

Until next time...
