Three days at Gisborne

Posted on 18 October 2014 | 3 Comments

We spent all of Thursday, Friday and most of today at Poverty Bay A&P Show. Mindy jumped perfectly for me in the indoor arena. (The photo below shows us at the end of a round. Mindy has her tongue out again!) And Leo didn't put a foot wrong in all our showing classes. Today he was awarded Supreme Champion Pony of the show and at the end we cantered around the oval with the other champions. One of the horses got really excited but Leo was a good boy and I managed to ride one-handed and wave to the crowd while we cantered past. Very exciting!

    Oh my goodness, that sure is a huge pile of ribbons! How did you manage to fit them all on little Leo's neck for the Grand parade? Well done.

    What a full on show. You did so well. Mindy jumped like a pro and Leo was the talking point for the crowd. Taking out Supreme was the icing on the cake! You were up against tough competition and had 4 judges making the decision! Well done Katie
