first place






so this last saturday saylor was in a horse show ... or rather competition i should say. we havent had much horse show experience but this was not what we expected at all. it was very competition like and judged and all that. saylor's sweet riding coach sabrina went to great lengths and generosity to make this experience possible for saylor. i dont know that we even realized how much she was doing for us till we got there. kind of made me feel bad. anyhow saylor competed in 3 events, all 3 were young girls under 8. i was so proud of her in the first event because it was all about riding proper and how you hold yourself and the reins and if you can make the horse do basic stuff. she did so much better then the other kids, her pose was excellent and the judges interviewed her and were absolutely smitten! she took first of course, the next event was a double pole race and she took 2nd and then a single pole race and she took first again. it was really fun. i am so proud of her and so glad that she continues to have this in her life!

Saylor is such a doll! That is so great that she is participating in this activity and excelling as well. She looked like a natural on her horse!

Okay so cool she did all that and what a awesome teacher for spending the extra time for her and this talent she has. I hope she will be able to continue this, it looks really fun! We have a big ol' deal down here in Pebble Beach with the horse's...do you know about that? I wish i knew what it was called, anyway my point is if you ever want to do it your family can stay with us...for real.
