|The big test for showmanship: here Terra and another 4-H'er from the neighborhood do their best to show their horses for the judge. |
Showmanship is judged on overall appearance of horse and handler and how the handler works through specific tests.
|At just about any horse show, there's a lot of "hurry up and wait" time, so Terra spent a lot of time yesterday morning keeping herself and Lefty from being too bored by walking and lunging.|
It was a nice start for Terra at yesterday's first day of the annual 4-H horse show. She earned a top blue ribbon and competed in the championship for intermediate showmen.
Today she'll ride Lefty in walk-trot, and we're all once again hoping for the best.
Congratulations, Terra and Lefty.
And, Happy Sunday to all.
