August 8, 2017- Showmanship Sparkle
Hi everyone! I decided to write today about some gorgeous outfits I saw during the showmanship prelims yesterday! I chose these 3 outfits because I found they worked so well with the horse. I found they were different and stood out from the rest. The first photo of the brown outfit with the roan is a perfect example of that. In the pen the outfit matched the undertones of the horse perfectly and really tied the pair together.
August 6, 2017- Level 2’s Time To Shine
“For my interesting photo of the day I chose to feature the Level 2 Finals! I’m so excited that AQHA made the step to give Level 2 riders their own time to shine! It’s so great for riders that may have missed shows due to school or other events and still gives them the opportunity to have their own awards ceremony! I love that AQHA is opening up such a deep competition to more people – it really makes the show much less intimidating!”
August 4, 2017 – Ford Youth World Day 1
Hi everyone! I’m here at the AQHYA Youth World as a competitor and as an insider for PleasureHorse.com!
Being at the Youth World for my second year has really shown me what the best of the best in the industry look like, and also what to strive towards in my riding career! I came to the show world very green and unaccustomed to the high level of competition that is actually out there.
Coming from a town where high level showing is almost non-existent, I constantly received teasing from my school friends that there were no spectators at my shows or as one kid from my school put it after I posted a photo from a show in Las Vegas, “was is red shirt night?” Hinting at the completely empty set of seats behind me in the photo.
As I sit here watching the Level 3 preliminaries of the Western Riding, I look around to see full seats. I hear cheers, whistles and clapping for everyone. And I see people taking pride in the skill and ability of those that have put in so much work to be where they are at this very moment.
It makes me so proud to be an exhibitor here knowing there will be people to watch and enjoy the effort I have put in with my gelding, Poison Rain.
I’m happy to be able to write this and show that it isn’t “red shirt night;” what we do, does deserve spectators and cheers and excitement!
I hope this sparked some happiness and joy in you too, stay tuned tomorrow as I feature my “Daily Sparkle” outfit!”
