First Show of the Season - DONE!

We headed out to the first of the Buxmont shows for 2010 on Saturday.  We decided to show Kali in Green Western Pleasure and we brought Zip along for the gymkhana later in the day.  The Western Pleasure show had a record number of horses and was running late.  We got to the show grounds around 11 AM, T didn't head into her class until some time after 4.  Kali pinned in 2 of the 3 classes while Zip cheered her on from outside the ring.  Zip was very well behaved all day, probably because he had Kali with him.

I really love this picture and I'm going to do some editing to enhance it.

The gymkhana started about an hour late so we were hustling to get all the classes in before the rain started. 

The gymkhana warmup looked a bit like a circus.

Zip did really well and was Grand Champion for the show on Zip but the surprise of the night was Kali who actually beat Zip in 2 classes and took first place for barrels.  T won some cash in an open money run on Zip for 50 yard dash (she came in 2nd and money pays for 1st, 2nd and 3rd).  T rocked and I'm very proud of her!

Since it was late in the day and a storm was looming, I wasn't able to get great pictures for the gymkhana.  You can see more pics here.
