So this morning I got my darling son up and 0630 followed by my husband to trundle off to Sons first show.

Arrived in plenty of time to have a cup of tea and a bacon roll for Son ( he'd already had breakfast but it was now 'lunch time' ) then we got ready for our first class, very simple, Neatest and Cleanest :) Stupidly I forgot my boots so had to lead in my shoes ( it annoyed me greatly Id forgotten them! )

Off the trailer


Looking smart


In the ring


Oh my, pulled in 6th place!! Our first Rosette!


Next class was Lead rein under 8's, Sons trot is still a work in progress, but bless he tried!




To be pulled in 5th out of some very seasoned LR competitors :D


Last Class was in Hand Veteran, was quite a big class too! ( I was with hi8m but have cropped myself out of the pics as much as possible as he wanted to do it on his own)





Asking the Judge if she really called him in First place


Yes! She did!




So I have one extremely happy 6 year old Boy, a shattered Hubby and a now filthy pony again as the first thing he did when turned out was roll.

Thanks for reading, Roast pork with all the trimmings and apple crumble on offer ;P

What a lovely report, fab pictures. His little face with his red rosette, priceless. You must be thrilled with them both.
PS, why are husbands always shattered when they get involved with the ponies :)

Brilliant! Was so impressed you even thought about taking a grey pony to a turn out class. He looked so clean!

Super thread and congratulations all round! His smile at the end says it all! We have also had a good day out (will try to do thread and pics) and guess what...roast pork in the oven, :)

One of the most delightful threads I have read on here, that last photograph is absolutely wonderful! Well done to you all, what a fabulous day out.
