Day 873 Horse riding recital- with ribbons

Sunday, Emily took us on an unplugged outing to a horse show to support her friend, Justice. Justice takes riding lessons at Hidden Hills Farm and they were having a show and judging the girls on how much they had learned. It was like a piano or dance recital… with horses. We had a good time and several of Justice’s friends were there as well as all her family. (Bonus for me, her grandmother is a quilter!) The only thing I wish I had known in advance is how long it was going to be… I would have brought snacks and drinks. But for Emily’s first unplugged outing (one that she planned) it went off very well.

Emily, Rachel and Drifter, the horse Justice was working with. Drifter is blind in his right eye so you have to be careful to approach him on the left.

The bumper stickers are their own explanation.

It began to rain so we had to come home as neither of us was dressed for cold spring rain. Justice won 1st place in showmanship and 5th in bareback- Emily hasn’t told me how she did after we left.
