Tripwire, my Django stablemate, won a 1st in breed then a Division Reserve Champion in the all-sizes SR Breyer TB/WB/Sport division. I actually ended up having 5 horses in the callbacks for that division, so I guess I did pretty well! The only horse in that division I had that didn't make it into the callbacks was Acadia, who was up against four other Acadias and some other models. He came 2nd among the Acadias in breed, 4th in the class overall. My Enchante and Haute Couture both came 1st in their respective classes.
The biggest surprise was probably my Fantasia Del C, Rochelle, getting Division Reserve Champion! She has a lot of flaws and truthfully I only bring her along because I've got the class space. I never really expect her to place at all, and she hasn't thus far, but she ended up getting a 1st in breed much to my surprise, and it was even more of a surprise when her name was called when the judge was naming the champs. I'm happy she did well!
And finally, my mini Cameo resin painted by Angelica Nelson, Nocilla, received a 1st in breed, 2nd in workmanship, and then a Division Reserve Champion in the Mini AR/CM division. She was up against my Fausto and Faran, plus others on those resins and a handful of other Spanish and Gaited types. I was super proud! She hadn't placed very well for me yet so getting a double NAN and a big ribbon was a big deal to me. She is one of my favorites in my collection, so seeing her do well overjoys me.
My glossy marwari finally placed. He hasn't scraped up so much as a 6th before but not only did he get a 3rd in breed at this show, he also got a 2nd in collectability and a NAN card to go with it. This was the first show I've ever been to where it was double judged, which became confusing at times trying to keep track of who got what, but I really liked it! None of my horses have gotten any yellow NAN cards before so it was nice to finally get a few. Many other horses of mine got cards but I won't list them all off here. I'm very happy with all of them, regardless.
As for the rest of the show, it went awesome! I spent a lot
All in all, I had a great time. There are no other shows in my area that have been announced yet for any time soon so it'll probably be a while before I get to show again. It has been a pretty busy spring for shows for me either way. Last year there was one, this year I've been to three! I hope to keep showing as long as there are shows here to attend. Maybe one of them will be closer than 3 hours away at some point!
