And Hannah & Alex entertained the crowds with a last minute entry to the Pairs Horsemanship class! Riding Xena & Diesel they performed to Carrie Underwood’s Two Black Cadillacs and had an excellent ride – so fun!
Great horse show with awesome numbers despite the weather. So lucky to have a great facility that we were able to stay mostly indoors when it was awful outside! Thanks as well to David, Kathy, Tim & Jeremy for keeping the show running smoothly!
And to the behind the scenes JMQH team – Margo & Chris Buijs who keep the horses fed, aisle cleaned and everyone ready to go ride & show – you guys are AWESOME! Heather Doig for keeping the horses physically happy with their Game Ready and massage treatments. And Kayleigh for your excellent organization in set up and take down! And special thanks to Alex for these pictures – they are awesome! Thanks to everyone for keeping us fed and watered as well through the show – it’s so nice to get some hot food and cold drinks!
And to Allyson Nicol – thank you for the endless hours of coaching! It sure is a team effort!
As always – a fun time was had and lots of great success. Way to go!!!
