FRHA Show in Ocala, April

One of the brightest spots this whole weekend was seeing Christine Ramage show a reiner for the very first time! About two months ago Christine purchased "Lark's Peppy Step" from McCullough's and jumped in. This was her debut weekend and it was sweet! She rode into the Green 1 Class with just a few signs of outward nerves and had close to a perfect ride. She marked a 69 with a 1 point late lead change penalty. Other than that she spun, circled and stopped beautifully...even her lead changes were great other than one being late. We are so proud of you Christine...way to go...and we are proud of Lark who spent so much time here. Its nice to see her work well for you!! Congratulations!
Saturday went well for the kids! Kyndall and Danielle were first and second in the 13 and Under and Lucas was second in the 14 to 18. Lucas was showing three horses, Danielle was showing two horses, and Kyndall had her three year here for the weekend besides her show horse so they all did a lot of riding! Good job to all of you for working so hard and riding well all weekend!
Burl and Karen both had nice rides this weekend in the Green Classes. Karen really stepped up Sunday morning with a beautiful ride! Way to go!
Ginger just keeps knocking on the door at the top of the Rookie Class. Awesome spins and stops both days!! Good job Ginger!
Steven Duchac had another great weekend on Bohdi! Second place both days in the Rookie Professional Class with very stiff competition! Steven's wife Anne was making her own noise at a Dressage Show on Sunday where she won every class she entered! That is really exciting!! The hard work those two put in on their horses is really showing!
I was real happy to get some more money won on Dually for Ronnie and Cathy of Sandy Creek Performance Horses! We won the Novice Horse Open on Sunday so for the third show in row Dually has shown well and got a nice paycheck!
Finally, it was really fun to see Kyndall riding her three year old, Funny Face around again this weekend. Saturday night after the show we spent some time working together and Kyndall really got some good work out of her. Its really been fun for me to pick out a two year old just for Kyndall and see her come along in her training to the point where Kyndall can get her shown. The other part that makes it all fun is that Funny Face is by Dually that I spoke of earlier. They are real nice horses and its fun to see them blossom!
Keep up the good work everyone! Brad
