On Saturday, October 30, the Pony Pals made the early morning trek to Fieldstone Park in Mansfield, Texas to see O's (Harley's Classic O) show debut. O is Daltrey's sire.
This was a cool show. Not snooty-tooty, just a fun, local, open show at a very nice facility. Most of the horses were au natural, i.e., not body clipped, braided, etc. Some people wore show clothes, some not, though all were neatly turned out.
This mini was the buddy horse. Snotty little guy from what I was able to gather. There were two young girls leading him around, and one was complaining loudly that he'd kicked her.
Heather Harmon holding O as we waited for his classes to begin. O was entered in 4 classes. Two were halter and two were saddle classes. Unfortunately, although there were 3 possible locations for classes to take place, there were only 2 judges. The show was way behind schedule, and we waited a lot.
Isn't she adorable? Her daddy was there helping her. This is the life I would have chosen for myself at that age.
This paint was so beautiful. His color reminded me of the metallic sheen of my truck. He has a dorsal stripe.
Heather Crispin, O's new owner, riding him for classes under saddle, led by her husband Gerardo. O was a little keyed up. The judge was so kind and understanding.
He did so well. He only had one moment when he didn't want to transition for Heather. She asked and asked, and finally spiked him a good one. He kicked out, but she rode it like a champ!
