Wow we are already moving into the second week in June! The first of the month has been ultra-busy getting the horses ready for the District 12 Horse Show last Friday. It was a wonderful and exhausting couple of days and ended up with some great successes all the way around and wonderful memories with friends.
Taylor and Morgan both won buckles for Hunter over Fences which are jumping events!! This is really cool since this was their first time competing over fences, and especially at District. This was also Morgan’s very first buckle ever!
Taylor also won a buckle for Sportsmanship which is one of the biggest honors of the show!
Once my internet gets up to speed again I will post pictures.
This week and weekend the girls have been furiously working on record books which are due June 17th, but they will both be gone to State Roundup in College Station leaving tomorrow and returning Friday so they needed to have them mostly done. They have done a wonderful job stepping it up a notch last week and getting them mostly completed! It’s always fun going through our year and listing all the events attended and picking out favorite awards as well as looking through pictures. It was truly a busy year!!
I will also be posting updates on their experience with State this next week as time and bandwidth allows.
Their lineup for the week:
Monday- traveling and kickoff party
Tuesday- Morgan and Taylor competing in Ag Product ID (a brand new contest to State Roundup this year!)
Wednesday- Horse Judging for Morgan (Shelby, Logan and Sheri too!) Good luck JWC Team!!!
Thursday- Morgan will be giving her Horse Educational Presentation “How to Judge an Equine Halter Class” and Taylor will be competing in Healthy Lifestyles with several other JWC kids. Her team consists of Taylor, Kaitlyn, Ashlyn and Elise. Good luck ladies!
Friday will be for traveling home.
Each day also has seminars that might be able to be attended on various topics as time allows, some shopping, fun, and each night there is a dance. Thursday night will be live music.
Stay tuned for updates!
