Dog Days - NOT!

The girls had the last 4-H point show of summer on this past Saturday and the weather was lovely.  The show was casual/done-by-one (2:00pm really) to help us survive the brutal heat of the "dog days of summer."  But, we had rain and cooler temps and got home before the humidity heated things up.

Ivy and Pico had a good day winning Hunter Under Saddle, Hunt Seat Eq and Hunter Hack.  Alaina and Sunny (AKA TTG) won trail, and came 2nd in Showmanship and Western Pleasure (her palomino buddy Lindsey was first with Timer).  Ivy skipped speed to complete her work segment requirements and Alaina rode Sunny in Speed classes for the first time (6-6-5 out of 8); not bad for a western pleasure pony.

Sister got to stay home and Splash had the weekend off (there is no excuse for me......).  Diez got the torture bath Sunday afternoon and then rolled in the black dirt to return things to their normal appearance.

Hopefully, things can return to normal next week with the Saturday Party Lesson/Lunch and some work on the Splash-man.  We have work to do since the next dressage show is Sept. 3 and I want to ride in the Rogers County Fair.  But, work will have to wait until after my Kansas trip this week. 

Perhaps a YaYa Ride can happen next week - a girl can dream.
