What a day early start with my plaiting at 9am this morning and at the Macclesfield and District Show ground for 12 noon. My family entered me in the in-hand best gelding class and used this event as a warm up for the welsh nationals in August.
I came of the box a good hour before my class and my dad and trainer / groom got me in top show fettle and warmed me up ready for the class. My class was called at 2.00 pm and I entered the ring with my mum. There was some very good company in a rather large class but the judge picked me straight out after seeing my movements and awarded me the Best Gelding in the in-hand class 30.
Me and my family really enjoyed the win and celebrated with a photo shoot for my first class win. Hopefully I can take this great experience to the welsh nationals and perform well there. Checkout my celebrations photos in my Photo Gallery.
I returned home and was turned out with Millie to enjoy some lush grass and to chill out after a wonderful day. Check back soon to see new updates and maybe another show before the nationals could be on the cards.
