Horse Show

On Friday evening we went to Kenna's Horse Show where she competed in 3 different events. We arrived at 6:15 p.m. because we were told it started at 6 :45 p.m. Well, that was just the beginning of a long and very windy evening.

We found out when we got there that her events would start at 7:00 p.m. but the 1st group didn't even finish until 7:45 p.m. and when we finally got home it was just before 9:00 p.m. We were tired, wind blown, and hungry. Last year they had hot dogs, soda, and chips so we didn't eat anything thinking we'd just eat there. We were ill prepared! But, the 3 nieces, 1 daughter, 1 husband, 1 grandpa, and 1 mother, all survived the event!!! It was only supposed to take an HOUR! I sure wish THEY (organizers of the events) had been better prepared like last year.

These are the 3 events that Kenna participated in:
  • Riding Skills
  • Barrel Racing
  • Water Race

Here she is ready to go into the Arena.

Kenna LOVES to ride horses and take care of them.

Kenna is ready to ride in the Barrel Race.

Here she is loping to the finish line.

Kenna placed 2nd, 3rd, and 4th in the 3 events she participated in.
