Anytime we head off to a show or barn function....we take time to remember the funny moments that make our trips even more special. 

Coastal Hunter Jumper November 2015

First and foremost - DO NOT google "How to put on garder straps" when trying to help a rider at their first horse show.  Karen & Hannah are sisters from another mister.  What do you Mean.  Derder is our on road mechanic and electrical tape & a screwdriver can fix anything.  Left Lead = leave the ring.  Liz has no bedroom etiquette and will leave you all alone in a cold bed.  What do you mean.  More people slept on the floor than in beds.  The birthday boy got lots of spankings.  Austin wanted oysters, derder chose Chili's.  Karen trains for 6+ months on one horse only to sway 3 minutes before show time on one she never rode before.  Lots of people were forgotten on the elevator.  We took the Ware's Jewler's Box to the ring.  Bruce paid for a couple extra kids thanks to missing checks.  Emily is a helicopter mom...or just amazing! How to place in an Eq flat = parachute jacket.  There was sleeping with eyes open.  What do you mean.  There were rats...very large rats.  Karen got lifted 3 feet in the air bridling horses.  Jen hit rockstar mode while driving.  Shot of Nyquil and a medicine bag.  Voices in the closet.  "Why is she changing outside the door, with derder?"   Someone maybe forgot to pack everything - but they did have brand new garders.  French fry met Vegan fry.  

All jokes aside - what a great weekend!  Alex was champ on Cashmere in the Ground Poles!  Zac was champ with french fry in Long Stirrup.  Austin and Dublin were champ in the Pre-Long Stirrup.  Karen and Joe were Reserve Champion BOTH days in the pre-rider.  Anna and Jackson were reserve champ in the Pre-Child...this was their first time at the 2'6 also!  Joe and Bri were reserve in the Modified and 3rd in the derby.  Hannah and Brighten were Reserve in the .80 jumpers and 3rd in the .80 Classic.  Bri and Picasso were Reserve in the Child/Adult Jumpers.  It was AWESOME!  Love this series and these people!

As always - a great group of riders and horses headed to conyers GA.  Some of the funny moments were...
Nascar style tire air up.  Liz=french fries. French Fries help you sit Joe's trot. Karen ate 72 loaves of outback break. Thrashley.  The manager at outback was 12.  Ashley & Hannah were mistaken for Jens children.  Bruce rides a jump off with no stirrups.  Tami only said sorry 643 times.  We forgot every barn supply needed for the weekend.  Ask Bella where to get alcohol...the isosopyrilyn kind.  Bri got into Auburn.  Anna was the honorary winner of her Sat Eq course....and jen paid for the class.  Mille saw the light Sunday AM.  Uno attempted to jump her stall wall.  42. Tiny was there.  We forgot blankets...horses were cold.  Microwave meals at the Hawthorne.  we fit all the trunks and 8 horses...into the 6 horse.  Mattie was there and then left :( Karen is amazing.  Ashley makes the same face while riding, while sleeping, while driving, while texting, while eating, while coaching, while tying shoes.  Just say, "It's nice to see you."  and that is all!

Took a great crew of 9 horses and, as always had a blast!  This was a debut horse show for Nolan, Stone, and Dublin! These three boys had great first show experiences! Nolan got to school and compete in the Grand Prix Field with Sam.  Stone was more awesome than expected and went right into the covered at 2'6 with Paulina.  Karen and Dublin got to play in the 18-21' and had super rounds!  Cassie and Rawah were on vacation and schooled in lots of rings...with Jen (and without) hehehe! Bri and Picasso played in jumper land and had fun in the Grand Prix field.  Veronica and Freckles were Champion in the Mini Equitation and Reserve Champ in the Hopeful Hunter!  Buddy and TW killed it in the 3'3 jumpers.  They beat their own time with each course! Tami and Cashmere achieved her 2015 goal and competed and pinned in the 2'11. Sam and Polo had an awesome weekend with a 2nd in the mini prix and winning the $$ Open Class. They were also Reserve Champ in the open jumpers!  So proud of the horses and riders!  
Funny moments: "BE PROACTIVE!"-Jen multiple times throughout the weekend.  "Are you satisfied?"-V to Jen.  The pizza guy and his tip.  The bar tender noticing the two tone face and then mentioned it again to someone else :(   insured horses go on certain trailers.  Plastic utensils are kept in the bathroom.  Sleep eating and teapots of water.   Caution- Show Horses! and Baby on Board.  "Can I take my hairnet off?  Just to get another layer off? - Tami.  Back when gas prices were cheap.  Donald Trump is rich.  Mary has a boyfriend and you will know if she likes you if she invites you to her wedding.  Rusty fed the bunnies and Bunny helped deliver feed.  "LOVE EACH OTHER"   Jen will leave, as you are climbing into the truck.  V & Karen aka 2nd class citizens had to ride in the bed of the truck all weekend.  The blakes (that is right, bLakes) has problems but Derder was to the rescue.  Cassie doesn't bathe.  The trainer loves her kids so much that she slept on the pull out.  Bruce delivered a 2nd mattress...in his AU boxers.  "where did the dressing go??"   "Dont cha wish your girlfriend was hot like me?"   "Probubbly!"  Cassie schools herself, she jumps jumps on her own, and she woo's on her own.   "Is he waving at me?"-Jen  "Probubbly Not!"-Paulina   Thanks Horhay for helping and nice boxers.  Climbing out the back window to close the tool box and having a cop pass you.

Yazer and Billy were Champ on Sunday in Long Stirrup Hunter
Larner gave Rufus a GREAT first horse show experience and by Sunday, he actually picked his feet up over the fences.

Lotto was Champ on Sat in the Low and Abi was 2nd in the LS Eq Flat
Lizars and Maggie had great trips in the Long Stirrup.
Kyra and Polo were Reserve Champ in the Long Stirrup Hunter and Eq over the weekend.  
Some highlights!
Yazer & Jerky - show barn managers - GREAT Job! Larner would have won her last class...till the cursed last fence.  Mary was nice to people all weekend long.  Bean has best attitude at the show ring.  Rhone gets super nervous and Cassie helps her out.  Erin is high maintenance.  Bri took Rapunzel to Kindergarden and did great!.  Amy tried to set a fence while on Search's back and got a shiner.  Erika's hair is blue.  Abi  did a course in the downpour!  Lizars is the most helpful at all times!  Kyra moved up to 5 foot 2000.  Katie was awesome. Jen was pregnant

Wet weekend but did not stop the fun and laughs!  Erin & Maggie won the Adult Hunter Classic (despite the flood...and a classy warm-up round!) and were Reserve champ in the Adult Hunter.  Jerky & Treasure were champ in low child jumper.  We convinced Treasure they did not give out brown or yellow ribbons.  Terez and Zami were first and second in their classes on Sat and did not show Sun b/c Terez could not breathe :(  Bri & P had a good weekend with great times- just silly faults...P proved she was a lady winning lots of purple.   Dana and Tucker were champ in their Two jumper divisions as well.  We love showing in alpharhetta...good eats!  Thanks Sven for dog sitting,  Kristen for sunday support, and bruce for trailer duty.  Oh and of course - John for his 'hotness' all weekend!
