Look at that smile!
After that we ate lunch, played some more and rode Peanut around. The other kids from theranch did good as well. We had one boy that was Grand Champion in showmanship with his draft and Reserve Champion in Senior Team Driving. We also had a Reserve Champion in Junior Team Driving and a few other purple and blue ribbons. Around 2pm, we loaded up all the horses, wagons, kids, lunches and water and headed home. It was a great day! I am so glad I got to go and be a part of it. I am so glad Makenna got this experience. It has helped her so much and has been a huge esteem builder. In two weeks we will have Acheivement Days for 4-H and she will get to drive again. Maddi has also decided to join the ranks and she wants to show. Our horse, Sadler, won't be ready for her to drive but she will do Showmanship with him. I am so glad to see her out there working with the horses too. That has been a huge change this summer. She has gone from being terrified of horses (not even willing to get on the cart with Peanut) to driving Peanut and working with the horses. Next year we will have both girls out there driving their ponies.
