Show Report: GMHA June Show - Sunday and picture wrap up

Continued from Saturday...

Sunday I arrived early hoping to fill a scratch in any Training Level class. Unfortunately, no such luck. So Armani and I rode around the grounds and warm-up ring. My visiting friend, was our personal photographer. She captured a lot of great pics. I have plenty of nice pics of us. But somehow I find myself drawn to the "bloopers". And so I'll wrap up my journal of the weekend with a picture mash-up.

Sunday in the warm-up ring


Armani has spotted a Fjord. He loves blondes.

Armani is heartbroken. The Fjord turns out to be a gelding.

My brother pats a dog in the audience.


On Saturday, Mom pats Armani, who mugs for the camera.

Just to prove we don't always look silly.
Is Armani planning to eat those flowers?

Halt at X.

Looking over to the FEI ring

Talk to the hand

Watching the freestyles, my brother tries to not look bored

Armani lets me know what he really thinks of horse shows!

Like the pictures! Mr. Personality, it seems!

It's nice to have a friend who is good at taking pictures. Mine tend to inconveniently cut off the horses feet or something.

You guys look good together.

Great pictures of you and Armani. Looks like you did well and had a good time too. He's a real character, but I love horses with opinions and curiosity.

Armani is a handsome boy! I love that he goes barefoot. Tough feets!

Stephanie said...

Great pictures of you and Armani! Nice to have your family there and your brother trying not to look too bored... :) the epitome of most non-riding men at a dressage show!

Looks like you had fun!

Your heels are down in every shot. I hate you (not really). Armani is just gorgeous and you are an elegant pair!

hehe I tend to have the problem of getting my heels too far down and losing my leg position. :)

Great shots! Looks like you guys had a great time!

Loved all your photos. I went to pony club camp at GMHA a million years ago, literally over 20. What a beautiful place!
