This was my daughter's first horse show. She has been working hard for 2 years at a local stable to pay for her own lessons and yesterday she had her first show. She came home with 5 ribbons, two of them 1st place! Even the horse looked up and "smiled" for this picture!
I know it's corny, but because she WORKS for her lessons, we have treated it just like a job and have not stayed around to watch her. This is really the first time I have seen her on a horse since one of her first lessons. When she rode out and I saw her, she looked so beautiful I almost cried.
I am so proud of you, Amanda!
