Star Vaughn Horse Show: April, 2013

We had a week of beautiful weather at a lovely facility, Leone’s Equestrians. Our horses were fantastic and our riders rode awesome. We had a blast!

Emma Tyrrell and Palladium looked amazing this week! The highlight would have to be the SECOND in the SVS Hunter Derby…a great ride! Emma rode in the Junior Hunters this week and came home with lots of SECONDS. I think Jerry makes quite a handsome hunter:-) Congrats Emma!!!

Emily Johnson and Tapatio were on fire this week! This was Emily’s first show on Tio in the 3’s…and they looked like old pros:-) This team was CHAMPION in the AA Eq Division and RESERVE CHAMPION in the AA Hunters…wow!!! Great show Emily!

Baby Albert learned a lot at this show and really seems to like traveling. He was so brave and well behaved! I especially think he loved all the delicious grass:-)

Congrats Team KMT…awesome show!!!

Fun times!!!

KMT Tri-Valley Classic: April, 2013

We all had a great day at the KMT Tri-Valley Classic Schooling Show. There were a lot of great riders and some really nice horses. But it is most enjoyable to see Team KMT working so hard as a team to make this all possible. A huge THANK YOU to Sierra, Emma and Alexis for helping me throughout the day. You guys are the BEST!

Elisabeth and Cupcake have come a long way in under a year. Elisabeth was focusing so hard on her posting diagonals she kept changing it to the wrong one. Elisabeth looks stronger and more focused than ever. This pair received a FIRST, SECOND, FOURTH and a FIFTH.

Isabel and Amour had their first show together. Isabel is still getting to know Amour since owning him just under a month. He was a little excited and maybe a little nervous in the poles classes and decided to speed things up a bit and canter down the lines. Isabel remained calm and rode fantastic. She didn’t even seem nervous. She is going to be one tough rider. This pair came home with a THIRD, FIFTH and two SIXTHS.

Neal and Sunshine were unstoppable. This pair nailed every course and every flat class. They came home with two FIRSTS and three SECONDS. Making them CHAMPION of the 2′ division.

Kiera and Waffle also ride in the 2′ division. This show was Kiera’s first show as the proud new owner of waffle. Congratulations Kiera!!!! Kiera proved that when you make a mistake, if you go back in and challenge yourself you come back as a winner. Kiera WON the 2’KMT medal class. They also received two THIRDS and a FIFTH making them RESERVE CHAMPION.

CONGRATS TO ALL on a great show!!!
