Riding Saddleback - Ellie's First Show


I mine as well start off by letting you all know this will be a week of Ellie posts. Ha. Saturday was her 7th birthday and we celebrated big. We started off the day by Ellie being in her very first horse show! She was so excited and if she was nervous she didn't show it although I am sure she was. She was put into 2 classes. Both were leadline since this was her first time showing and the horses are extra spunky with all the attention. She was sure to have a great big smile on her face for the whole ride. The first time through all the participants got a blue ribbon for being so brave. The second class was an actual competition and she got second!!! Her number was called and my dyslexic self didn't realize it was her till about a minute into it. Once they found her name... Ellie Coldiron... I was cheering my heart out. At the end she was even sweet enough to share a ribbon with brother.

 *Tomorrow I am posting the party. It was an ice cream social and according to Ellie it was the best day ever!!! Hope to see you then.
