Two Beauties ....

We visited DS and DDiL this weekend. Got to catch up with the grand-dogs and meet our grand-horse 'Lunar" for the first time. She is 14 months old and with DDiL, attended her first Western riding event.

She is too young to be ridden so did a walk and trot around the ring. I don't understand all the in's and outs of it all, being new to Western riding events and shows but she was nice and calm and did very well.

From what I can gather, they only give rosettes to those who do really well. For example, you might have 6 in the group and only a few (if any) will get an award.

Anyhow, DDiL was stood in the ring at the end and they announced they would be awarding 1 less rosette than those in the ring so she stood there, just happy to have done well.

Her name was called out and there was no response from her for a few seconds, then she realised the 'whoops' of joy from the stable she is with, were for her and Lunar and almost burst into tears, such was her shock - 2nd place!

The other event she was in - 2nd place. Go girls!

Herewith a picture of them both just as they had finished - isn't the braiding of Lunar's mane beautiful:
All in all, a lovely visit and we got to meet horses and riders and see what these things are all about.
