On Sunday were the CM halter classes. The Simple Custom Mini division was pretty big and competitive. Our illustrious judge, Tracy Eilers, really had her work cut out for her! She really knows her stuff and did a great job keeping things moving smoothly.
My most exciting win of the division, and the show, was this 1-2 in the Appaloosa workmanship class. Diamond, the pony, is actually one of my earlier customs, done after the summer camp mare who taught me to canter. Second place went to Vortex, a custom by me owned by Martin Peck.
It was satisfying to move two horses to the judge off table. And even more satisfying when I came back to a Reserve Champion rosette!
That’s my first live show champ or reserve win, and to get it in Workmanship is very, very cool. Whee! The champion, a lovely pinto draft, was also reserve in breed. Diamond got a NAN card in breed too, with a second in Other Ponies- and second only to division reserve champ. It was really her day!
I had some other very satisfying placings in the division, and oogled lots of beautiful horses. Here are the rest of the pictures I managed to snap:
