This morning, at the crack of sparrows (first thing), we left Thordale to go to the Spring Show at Solheim Equestrian, Walls.
Kappi and Taktur were competing and yes, it was raining.
Taktur was going for the experience. He is a stallion and not used to going out much. He was a bit shouty to start with but calmed down as the day progressed. All the classes were mixed. Mares, geldings and stallions together.
Taktur was in the second class – In Hand, any other breed (The Show Register (TSR) Qualifier).
He won the class.
There were five in-hand classes – In hand riding pony/hunter pony type, any other breed, registered mountain and moorland Shetland pony, small pony and large pony.
Then it was the Overall In hand Championship.
Taktur won Overall Reserve Champion.
The day progressed in a soggy fashion with many more classes – all ridden.
The rain it did rain.
Our last class was Best Ridden, Any other breed. Daisy was riding Kappi and Bjørn Roar Larsen rode Taktur.
Bjørn and Taktur came 1st.
Daisy and Kappi were 3rd.
I think it rained the whole day solidly.
The rosettes are now drying on the Rayburn as well as my camera and all our clothes.
It was a good day. I was very proud of everyone. They all did very well.
