The big winner!!!

Shandler spends all summer getting herself and her horse ready for the fair. It used to make me a nervous wreck but this summer we decided to just spend time enjoying the rides. Sydney was thrilled when Shandler first rode early this spring she had matured, we made some changes with her horse and the feed and it turned out awesome. Shandler did not need to spend as much time learning to do the basics, she started the year off ahead. This year Shandler had to learn a new pattern and with Syd's help she aced it with a trophy and blue rosette! I had tears in my eyes and so did Syd. It was awesome. The judge even stood up and clapped for Shandler. It was a long day from 5:30 am until 5:45 pm but as you can see it was all worth it.
