Pink Ribbon Classic 2014

Last Saturday was the big Pink Ribbon Classic open show in Walla Walla, Wa. I took little Ira, (well, maybe I should rephrase that.... he's growing like a weed and honestly he isn't quite so little anymore...) to partake in a few of the halter classes. The baby boy did totally awesome!
We went under USEF judge Lewis McKim of British Columbia for in-hand halter. We placed: first in the 5 and under halter class, first in the light breed halter class, and third in the solid colored equine class. Ira won two pink buckets with some matching pink brushes! Here are some photos from the horse show, courtesy of Entirely Equine Marketing.

The first thing that the judge asked me was about his breed....(because he's so big for a yearling).  After explaining that he wasn't a warmblood, the judge exclaimed that he looked like he was going to be a really nice horse to ride in the future.  And I said "yes!"

Can anyone guess that I love this horse..?  I had a huge beaming smile after winning two classes.

We received very high compliments from the judge, the announcer, the photographer, and also even a few fellow competitors.  Everyone really loved the little guy and thought that he was very beautiful!  Ira was a very well mannered young fellow at the show, and I was very proud of him.  

Getting ready to trot out from the line.  He was watching Sibbea with her camera at that moment.

Looking forward to our next show in September!
