Katies Diary

Mindy and me!

Posted on 8 December 2013 | 3 Comments

Mindy was so good for me today in the Working Hunter classes at Whangarei Show. She soared effortlessly over the jumps. We overnighted for the fifth time in our truck. We were parked right beside the ring so between classes Mindy and I would come back to the truck. The judges had a half-hour lunch-break plus there was some time between classes at one point so I sat in a chair, holding Mindy, reading Catching Fire again, and watching Mum and Dusty do their Show Hunter rounds. When I was reading my book whenever Mindy saw Dusty she would neigh so when she neighed I would look up and see if they were in the ring. She was a perfect early warning system! It was another great day and Mum got a second place!

    Great show Katie...you soared over that wire! And you looked in your element sitting reading to Mindy while watching Mum do a fantastic job with Dusty. We also need to remember that Dusty doesn't like prams when she is tied up!

    Really well ridden this weekend, Katie. Another great result! By the way, apologies for my awful plaits. Nowhere near as nice as Deb's. Not even close!
