Wow, I haven’t updated my blog since the summer! Well that is all about to change. So much has happened since then. Since June I have shown Snowy and the SC 4-H State Show, that did not go as planned =[ Then we went to 4-H Camp in July, she did amazingggg! Then in July I went to the 4-H Southern Regionals for Horse Judging. Our team got and 8th in Halter Placings, 9th in Oral Reasons, 1st in Performance Placings, and 6th Team Overall. I got a 2nd in Individual Performance Placings! Then we didn’t do anything until October where we showed at the State Fair, we got a 4th in Children’s Hunter Equitation, and call backs in all of our flat classes. It was a huge show! Most of the flat classes had about 40 people in it, and the over fences classes were huge as well.  Just recently I attended the 2009 4-H Eastern National Round-Up. Our State competed in Hippology, Horse Bowl, and Horse Judging just like at Regionals. Our judging team got 8th in Halter Placings, 4th in Performance Placings, 8th in Oral Reasons, and 5th team overall! Out of 23 states! I got 9th Overall Individual!! So the trip was so worth it. Plus, while in Lexington we visited the Kentucky Horse Park (where I will hopefully be returning to next year for WEG!). It was so awesome, and huge huge huge! Then we went to Louisville were our competition was held. We got to go to Churchill Downs and watch the races super up close. I just want to say that I had the most amazing coach, Dr. Vernon of Clemson University, as well as the best judging team ever!! I have videos on youtube from all of these events, you should go watch them! (:

Farewell until next time!
