This year was horrible. I was 2003 & 2004 Highpoint Champion. However I
know I wont be 2005. At the start of the show I wasn't feeling too well.
The Halter and Showmanship classes I placed 3rd and 4th out of 12. By the
time the riding classes started I was about to die. I nearly passed out on
Blackie in the warm up arena. Every lap around the arena was becoming
blurrier and fuzzier in my head. Cathy had to literally force me to ride in
the Open Adult Walk-Trot. I nearly lost it. After that class I rode out
fast, gave my horse to my sister, went to the trailer and just laid out on
the ground. My trainer untacked my horse, loaded my horse, and took me
Here's a video of me and my horse during the ground events. Oh yeah, for the costume class we took Best Fantasy.
I can't get the video to play, but hope you're feeling better...you're still the best horse rider on the forums :thumbs:
Here's a photo of Barb and Wishy and Me and Blackie. The rest of the photos
are on Kodak camera's. Those will be posted when I get them developed.
Aww thank you
When do you find out who won?
It'll be in the paper later this week.
well congratulations on placing in the top 1/3 at least. get some rest, hot damn, lol. you crazy to be in a horse show while nearly passing out. :screwy:
I've been training for it since July. I didn't want to give up so easily.
