WOW i can't believe we are now past the halfway point in the competition!!!!Valero,Kahlua and i went to Lero's 1st horse show!!!!We were surprised by our friends Karen and Boom!!!That was probably my most favorite part of the night!At first Lero was fine but then i walked him down by the arena and once we couldn't see the trailer he had a few freakout moments.(which was expected since it was his first time in all the commotion of a show...)I decided to walk him around the arena to get him used to it before classes started and when we were walking out of the arena his foot hit the "very scary looking" trash can ...he kicked both feet and knocked the can down.Then i heard all sorts of comments from,"You need to teach that horse some manners!!"to"He needs a good whipping!"I was at the point of crying because to have someone tell you that after working hard with him for a month really hurt.But as the night went on Valero was yawning and almost falling asleep!Those people were eatting their words!!!!I was proud of him!(We didn't enter him in a class though)Kahlua did amazing tonight!!I was soo proud of her!There was some stiff competition!!!!We took "Walk,Trot,Lope.Western Pleasure","Open Ranch",and a fun class called"Race With Hats"(Had to move a hat from one pole to another. )We originally got 2nd in the 1st class but there was a messup in the placings and we got 3rd out of 9.The 2nd class we didn't place because there were 14 other competitors.And our fun class well by then Kahlua was drained from being ridden by 2 girls(it was karli's first horseshow and kar did great)When i got in there i was ready and i said"GO!!!!"To Kahlua.She Veered to the gate but i made her do it!I think some people were surprised that the little lazy mare had a lil get-up-and-go in her!!!!We got 3rd ,packed up and went home!!!Pictures later!!!Can't find my uploader!!!
