KMT Play Day, August 2012

20120807-065011.jpg
On Saturday, August 4th, KMT hosted their 2nd Annual Play Day & Potluck. Riders gathered to spend an afternoon of playing games on horseback and demonstrating their riding skills for parents and friends. Their skills were tested during a speed round of the Keyhole Race and Barrel Racing. The horses were a blur as they flew around the ring! Next it was time to hang on tight for the Bareback Equitation and Ride-A-Buck classes. Our riders had awesome positions, and Catie Carlson went home the winner of the Ride-A-Buck jackpot. Congratulations!

Our biggest class, Egg & Spoon, was a great test of balance for our riders, and they accomplished it with ease! We had to test them at the trot before they lost their prized egg. Great job everyone!

The afternoon ended with our Under Saddle Class for the human children, and they looked great prancing around the ring. Such fancy horses they were! It was a very difficult class to judge and everyone went home with a prize.

I would like to thank all our fabulous participants who helped make it a great afternoon: Michelle Brook, Charlotte Woo, Emily Heinrich, Elisabeth Delpouys, Jenna DeLisle, Catie Carlson, Ava Tosetti. And, to our helpers, Alexis, Sierra, Abby- you girls rock! A big THANK YOU to parents too for bringing such delicious snacks for our potluck!!
