All throughout the day I kept hearing people in the bleachers making comments "an Akhal-what?".... But Craig was there and was able to give them a condensed version of the breed history. We were in good company, as there was a group of four local Peruvian Paso's and two Missouri Foxtrotter's in attendance as well. (It's kind-of nice to not be the only different oddball out there, sometimes...)
We entered about a dozen classes and came away with 3 first place prizes. Half dollar coins were awarded, which was really neat. We're improving, slowly but surely.
