Horse of the Year Show!

Posted on 19 March 2015 | 6 Comments

I am so proud of Leo. He did a beautiful workout for me and we won the Medium Show Pony of the Year title. We were very lucky because we were up against lots of beautiful ponies and riders. We even had to take our saddles off so the judges could see the ponies "naked". As well as a sash and gorgeous purple garland, we won The Carey Family trophy and a Horse of the Year winners rug for Leo. He will look so good in it. Navy blue really suits him. We did our lap of honour while "Stand Up for the Champion" played. Leo got a bit over-excited when we passed too close to the loud speaker. Such an exciting day. After we rugged and fed the ponies, Mum, Dad and I went to to Hugo Chang's for dumplings. Thanks to Cherie for the help with our workout and the very glamorous turnout. Leo looked like a star. Also thanks to Mum who gave Leo a midnight feed every night for the last two weeks. Also to Nan who watched me ride once again and supplied the miniature Pinky Bars!
