|Octopelle and I got our "spit and polish" on for the MacMurdo show this year. We went under USEF judges Walter De La Brosse of California and Margo Hepner-Hart of Oregon.|
|I entered him in some of the open English pleasure, hunter under saddle, and hunter in-hand classes. It was a very crowded arena this year. Seems like everybody came to the show!|
|Open hunter in-hand halter class.|
|Hunter under saddle class.|
|We placed under judge De La Brosse! Yay! Considering there were a very large number of entrants this year, I was thrilled!|
And the following weekend after the show, we drove to Brothers, OR. for the NorthPac/Oregon 100 endurance ride. He switched gears to an endurance horse in rapid fashion.
|Coming in from the second loop on the 50 miler. A really fun ride, and Ox did great!|
