Horse Show!


While we were in Dayton we were lucky enough to be there during the 4-H sponsored horse show where our daughter in law, Rachel was competing.  

We came in the back way on a dirt road through a cornfield!  I wasn't sure if this was the right way or not. 

It was! 

This is Amy, the horse that was Rachel was riding. 
My grandchildren, Lauren (front) and Kyra were able to spend time with Amy before the competition.


Kyra rides as well, so she really enjoyed getting to know Amy


Ryan kept his distance!  

Rachel  spent some time grooming Amy while we watched.




A very short video of Rachel riding past us during the competition!  It's only 6 seconds but it shows off our daughter in law's riding skill!

 She won a blue ribbon and a red ribbon on this day.  





Click HERE for an interesting interview with Rachel all about the Event.  I'd love for you to read it, I wrote it for Yahoo Voices. 

We loved spending time with our children and grandchildren here at the Preble County Fairgrounds for the 4-H Horse Advisors Horse Show
