We made it through our first official big-girl horse show! Glendon Stables had an awesome day! Congrats to everyone who took part, and huge thanks to all who came along to help and support Glendon's riders!
I am by no means a morning person, and the 4am start to the day was a bit rough to say the least. It was a beautiful sunrise at the farm and we arrived at the fairgrounds nice and early. Between Clare, Nancy, Lauren and Sam, everything was looked after, from the registration at the office, to unloading, tacking up and schooling the horses before our classes. They looked after everything and made the day stress-free and easy to enjoy. I was surprised at how not-nervous I was.
In the morning was the Hack Division. Marilyn and I finished 2nd in the Road Hack, 4th in the Pleasure Hack, and 5th in the Equitation. In the afternoon, in the Novice Hunter Division, We placed 1st in the Hunter Over Fences, 1st in the Equitation Over Fences, 1st in the Hunter Under Saddle, and 2nd in the Equitation Under Saddle. That was good enough to win Division Champion! Marilyn was a rock star! I was so proud of us!!
It was a long, wonderful, very educational day and I am grateful for the experience. I am now looking forward to our next adventure in puddle jumping! - Kerry (Client at Glendon Stables)
