Keepin It Local

Team Tuck Away stayed close to home this weekend for a fun, local show. The thinking was that our spoiled "diva" horses needed to spend a day traveling back & forth between the show pen & the trailer. It went well and we all had a blast.

We definitely went for the low maintenance, just follow the rulebook look.

Ashton decided it was time to give showmanship a try. Birdye took good care of her.

Of course she had to get a Big Daddy hair do.

All by herself...

Cayden agreed to try the leadline class as long as she could ride Birdye & I would lead.

Competition was fierce, but they pulled it off! Cayden looked at me in the line up & said, "I loved it mama. I want to do it again next time!". Be still my heart!

Horse showin's hard work!

I almost had to walk home cause I BEAT BIG DADDY! It was a blast.

Moe made his showing debut & did great. Carter swept up in the morning classes.

Ash & Peeps owned the afternoon!

It was an awesome day, a step back in time to our early days of showing. Wayne even showed up with fried chicken!

The horses were good and got their lesson & the people were fun & got in their practice too. All in all, I'd say, "mission accomplished."

The End

Banquet Night

I'm missing my bull riding partner Ashley, but we've had fun anyway.

"I'm just not going to peel any bananas!" What a diva...

Farrel getting her bull ride on...

Stef owning it... "all the time."

Celebration Lunch

Frank won the 3 year old futurity class. Grace came in third. The rude state vet checking coggins killed our buzz. So now, we eat...

LoLo was upset about headlining the blog with a towel on her head so this is Kenny...basically.

Tuck Away Christmas

The official Team Tuck Away Barn Christmas party was held today. As always, it was great to have the whole team together. There was quite a buffet.

Rod won the ugliest hat competition and the enviable jade & ruby elephant trophy was passed on.

And of course, the PIT crowning and swearing in.

I'm pretty sure something slightly inappropriate was just said...

It was a great time. We are all looking forward to a great 2011 show season.
