The Appaloosa Horse Club
So I had the best weekend ever!|
I went to Nj for my last appy show of the season and it was amazing... I finished my Youth Superior Championship Award, which is the highest award a youth can recieve... okay so here are the specifics---
350 points are to be earned for this award. These points must be earnedin a minimumof five horse shows under a minimum of five jugdes.Of the 350 points, a minimum of 105 Showmanship at halter, a minimum of 140 points must be earned in Performance classes,with a minimum of 35 points earned in three of the four performance sub-categories (other then Showmanship). The remaning 105 points may be won in elective youth activites events.
In short, you run all around the country going to all these shows you have multiple horses and you kick ass....
As of August I needed 7.5 games points, and as of this morning I needed 5.5. So you could say that I choked hard core. Yesterday I ran my best games event (poles) and knock a pole my first heat automatically knocking me out of the points. It rained BUCKETS of water, and I got all these kids to fill for me.. But I killed it and got out of the keyhole. So I was disparing to the tenth degree... But luckily for me Appy people are the BEST. I came out this morning and they all schooled it on there own free will (besides 2 kids that are runing for high point) so i was 3rd in the figure 8 leaving me with 1.5 points left. Went in the barrels got a by. Won 2 more heats and was 2nd... So the that gave me 8 more points finishing my youth superior. Appy people rock I was amazed and touched at how giving they were, I never knew how good a friends I had untill today... Ok i g2g or else i might start crying again!!
I finally did it!
