Not A Bad End

They did it!!!!

Megan jockeyed the big black horse well over the weekend and took 1st place for the year end, in the Youth 3D...
Pretty impressive for a horse that we were just having fun on to win a saddle his first year out.

Spooksy, old boy did me grand as well. We took 3rd for year end, in the Open 4D and won a new 5-Star saddle pad...
That is impressive as well, considering I didn't even start running Spooks at the NBHA runs until the last quarter. He just placed so consistently every single time that he bypassed numerous horses that had run all year.


Megz restrained herself during the awards presentations, but once we got in the pickup and headed for home, you couldn't have slapped the grin off of her face. LOL

Moon didn't win anything this year. We garnered points in the 1, 2 and 3D's, but not enough to place in the year end awards. Spooks will never, EVER be anywhere near as fast as Moon, but he sure has him beat, hands down, in the consistency department. God Bless those big, clunky, solid-minded, foundation-bred horses. ;-)

Yay! A saddle and a pad make great awards. So much better than 50-cent ribbons.
