Yesterday was York Equestrians home show... hosted at Grey Stone Stables. This is the team's first time hosting alone... the past years they have co-hosted with other IEA teams. It was a lot of work, and the team did a great job organizing... I must say it was a very efficient well run event. Squeeke and Nick went along to join the other "team" horses, and both were very good ponies!
Squeeke did 3 back- to - back beginner classes, and was tired, but very well behaved! She was so cute- the teams all loved her! There was another palomino pony "spanky" and for one class they were both ridden~ it was adorable!
Krista is up visiting, so she was able to come by for a while, and Poppie brought all the boys down in enough time to watch Olivia too. Dad got stuck holding horses (Squeeke!) for a while, but with the hosting job comes a lot of positions that need filling! I worked the concession stand, then held horses... Bill practically held all day!
Olivia got "Edison" in the draw- a great pick since she lessons on him, and loves to ride him! He was "out of sorts" and ended up bucking with a kid in a later class- Liv said he wasn't listening well, but she seemed to do well! She didn't place as high as I thought she might (6th) but seemed to enjoy the ride!
I just got word that the concession stand made over $700 for the team! It was a great day, well organized with great mounts and a very positive environment. Go York!
