I'll try banding Lillie's mane or shaving her ears, but NO WAY and I getting anywhere close to the back end of Lillie. She would kick me in a second.
One of the classes Pookie and Lillie entered.
Once in a while a judge will ask to see the horse's teeth, one of the two judges did and Pookie opened up Lillie's mouth to expose her pearly whites.
This particular day Pookie and Lillie won three 3rd place awards (under two judges). You can see how happy Lillie was about it, she tried eating the ribbons.
One of the rare photos I have of Pookie and I at a show, I am always behind the camera. For the record, the outfit Pookie wears to show in is NOT my idea, it's all part of the Halter Horse classes for the girls to dress like that.
As soon as Pookie is finished showing she usually starts taking off the show clothes
quicker than she put them on. She was headed to the horse trailer to change as fast as she could.
A few minutes later, she was back and in her normal clothes but still had all her show make up on, or as we call it, the "toddlers and tiara's look." Pookie hates make up and wants nothing to do with it, until it's time to show her horse then she can't wait to get all the glitz on.
Lillie's new halter. Pookie is growing up, she use to want purple or lime green halters. She's all business now and only a leather halter with a brass name plate will do. I have to admit, I LOVE IT!!!
Pookie's fun new boots, very girlie and actually surprised me when she picked them out. They are a little flashy for Pookie, but so cute on her.
I thought a quick post on a horse show would be interesting to see, especially since we do go to so many. Pookie has many different horses for many different events, classes, etc... She loves to barrel race, halter, working cow horse, trail, western pleasure and of course her new love - all horse things English.
Pookie at lessons, riding Sonny
Another picture taken at lessons, shortly after this picture was taken she fell off going into a jump. Besides some scrapes and bruises she was not hurt. Thank goodness.
Pookie(at 8 yrs old) and Mable, her first halter horse, not her first horse just first halter horse. Pookie got her first horse "Candy" at three years old and started riding as soon as I got off the phone to book her first lesson. We haven't been able to get her off of a horse since.
Thanks for visiting.
