The EVAHA show was another fun day!

A beautiful, sunny and warm day was the backdrop for our great day at the EVAHA show at Horseshoe Park in Queen Creek, Sunday.

Everyone came to have some fun and enjoy some time in the show ring.

Glenda and First Time Everytime (Maddy) won the Halter Mares Championship trophy!

Samantha and Flippin Hickory's Prom (Angel) won the first Walk-Trot class!!

Katie (FISHER!) and Molly won the Leadline class!

Julie and Western Asset (Jane) placed 5th in the second Walk-Trot

Amanda and Best Be Blazing (Duke) placed nearly all of their classes, with a second, a third, a fourth and a fifth for ribbons. (I think I got that right! I hope so Amanda!)

Posted lots of pictures on Facebook-- check out the album!

All that after a painful fall last week. Guess it makes up for being so sore.

Blue Ribbon show this weekend!

Now that the Az National AQHA Show is over, we are getting ready for some fun at Blue Ribbon this weekend!

Hope to see you all this Sunday at Westworld in Scottsdale for some a great day showing in the gorgeous January Arizona weather! It's supposed to be cool and sunny, so bring a hat and cheer your friends on! We have several riders going to the show. Come by and say hi!

Light Rein has openings for Lessons and Training, there's only a limited # of stalls though, so give me a call @ 480-215-7103 to talk about lesson and training packages. Our new facility is beautiful! You and your horse will LOVE it!


The last week of the year....

Well, this year has flown by!

We are now in our new barn and settled. Lessons happening on a regular basis and getting geared up for the 2012 show season. The first show of the year is January 5th- the Arizona National Horse Show at Westworld.

Start the new year off right and make sure your memberships are all up to date for 2012. AzQHA, AQHA, NSBA and any clubs you have joined like EVAHA too! Your points won't count if you haven't paid your dues!

I just found a great new app for AQHA- they've created an app so you can have your rulebook on your smart phone! It's available for Android and for iPhones/pads. It makes looking up the rules really easy and it's FREE! You can always download the PDF of the rulebook to your computer, but the app option makes this so convenient! Check it out.

Here's to a healthy and happy New Year and one filled with achieving all the goals you've set!
