Off to the Region 5 All Arabian Horse Championships

I'm just about ready to depart for the Region 5 All Arabian Horse Championships at the Evergreen State Fairgrounds in Monroe, WA. The planning for this trip has been such an on again off again kind of deal that I can't even believe it's real. If it's not, I imagine I'll wake up some time today and be home before this ever gets posted.

It seems really odd to be going off to a horse show without my Arabian stallion, Scandalous Legacy. He is such a big part of my life and I have worked so hard to finally get the horse moving correctly leaving him behind is hard. However, with the entries for one single class for Rhet costing $335, there's just no way I can take Legs too.

After taking four horses to the last horse show, only showing one will probably feel like a big relief. Yet part of me will be sad that Legs is still home instead out showing off his stuff. I'll be thinking about the rides I would have had given the opportunity.........but the plans are for the All Arabian Horse National Championship Show in Tulsa, OK. I'll have to console myself with that thought. In the meantime my focus will be on Rhet and giving him the time he deserves so he puts on a great show and brings home a big prize. Secret Envy strikes me as the kind of Arabian horse that would love to wear roses around his neck.

The picture above is Angie on Midnite Eclipse and Karen Jensen on Flame Danzr D. Both garnered top five honors in the amateur owner to ride hunter pleasure division at the Region 4 Championships.

  1. I'm so disappointed that I can't be there to see Rhet show. Maybe I'll sneak out of the party for a few, it is only a few miles away from the fairgrounds...

    Good luck! I know he'll do great.

  2. I'll be there Saturday cheering Rhet on!

  3. I don't know if you will get this before...GOOD LUCK!!!
    I bet leaving Legs behind feels like you've forgotton something, but as you said showing only 1 will be quite a different show. It should be fun!
    Good Luck!!!
