Got a letter from the Arabian Horse Association last Friday. Apparently our guy Bay who is sweepstakes nominated won a bit of money last spring. Being clueless about all things complicated (or at least complicated to me) when it comes to showing, I had no idea until I received this letter. He took reserve champion at both 1st and 2nd level at the Arabian sporthorse regional championships in the amateur to ride division. The young lady who rode him did an awesome job. She has since moved away and is not showing him this season. We are very proud of this rider because as our trainer said of Bay "he is a tough nut to crack." They did it though...together.
