Kennedy turned four two weeks before the show. It’s hard to believe, time sometimes goes way to fast. The show was in Eugene Oregon, about a four-hour drive from here.
This was her first class and like I predicted she was happy with the blue ribbons, as were the trainers, until she spotted a pink one. (by the way Pink is for 5th place) Kennedy watched a lady with a pink ribbon walk out of the ring and went over to talk to her. I’m not sure what exactly she said, but the lady assured her that if she didn’t win a pink ribbon by the end of the show, she’d give her one of hers. Kennedy kept an eye out for the lady, who was stalled just one row over from us until we were ready to leave and then went over to get the pink ribbon.
We left her blues and reds for display but Kennedy took the pink one home with her.
I love these horse people. It’s a wonderful place for kids to grow up in. Kennedy’s mom started to show when she was thirteen and we used to say it didn’t take a village to raise her, it took a stable.

Going home after the show. Hard work for such a little girl.
Next show is this coming weekend. It is only about twenty miles from here. Kennedy is ready!!
