The May CREC show was held last sunday on the 20th, and Tommy did great. He preformed the best that he's ever done at a show yet! Wahoo! Both of us showed great improvement - (yes, me too - I know, it's hard to believe...) But it was nice. =:)
The CREC facility is on a tight operating budget, and since they hold several schooling shows per year - sometimes the extra funds aren't there for a few things. I REALLY appreciate the schooling shows in this area, and I don't want to see them go away. (These shows have helped my horse and myself immensely!)
So, in a small effort to pitch in and help out, I donated some "thrift store" ribbons that I made. There are around 30 first place flower ribbons that I put together from materials that I purchased at the dollar store for under $10 bucks. The little leather circles have "CREC" stamped on them, and the backs of the ribbons read "donated by the FOTATA". These ribbons aren't much, but the competitors (and especially the little kids), will be happy to win something and not go home empty handed.
