Little Ira went to his very first local schooling show on Monday! Paula Post hosts the "In It 2 Win It" evening show series in Pendleton for the local exhibitors. Ira was totally amazing at his first public outing, and I totally love him. We did the halter classes and also some of the showmanship classes. We've never practiced 180 haunch turns or sidepasses before, but he did sooooooooo well! Picked it up immediately. He was extremely well mannered with the loud noises (when the crowd clapped), and seeing new spooky objects beside the arena. He was quiet when horses zinged by him in the warmup arena, and stood quietly for setting up in halter. This is going to be a very nice colt - and I am in love with him!
