This was my most successful show to date. It was also one of the closest! It took only 40 minutes to drive to where it was being held and I set up all my models quickly on a table that was shared with Liz of Equine Inspirations. In total there were 22 people showing! It was also the biggest show I have attended in terms of entrants. Performance was first as usual and my Wee Jay resin Fudge with his cross country tack and set up came 5th in the massive class that was combined with showjumping, which I am pleased with. There were some truly stunning set ups!
Then the three rings occupied the Original Finish, Custom and then the non-bendy CTF horses (to include Schleich etc.) I only have one OF in my entire collection, a Schleich Knabstrupp who goes by the name of Wilbert. I was very lucky with Wilbert as he arrived to me flawless, although he did have toe teensiest of ear tip rubs on the day that I touched up really well. This meant he placed first in his class and he even went on to win the section champion!
The day progressed to the combined classes of Haflingers and Fjords and other European ponies, where I entered my Schleich custom as a fjord, who goes by the name of Teddy. There were lots of wonderful horses in his class and I was very pleased when his 1st place rosette appeared next to him! He then also claimed the section champion!! At this point in time I had had him up for sale and no one bought him... Quite ironic!
Straight afterwards, too, my Vincenzo entered the ring and came 1st along with being the champion of his section! Again, the best this horse has ever done!
