Poppy and Petra "go west" and win again.The show season moved to Omagh and after a relaxed morning we arrived at the show only to realise we had been a little too relaxed!! We parked up, the ladies began getting the ponies ready only to realise our first class was about to enter the ring! A bit of hasty sorting, dressing and running to the arena was not an ideal way to prepare a traumatised Petra for a strong 2/3 year old Connemara class! She had learned a lot from last week and stood up really well and we were happy with 3rd place. She was third again in the "Mare Of The Future" class, a fair result.
Poppy had another mixed bag of classes, Lynsey rode her round to warm her up for the ridden class before she was dressed for the in-hand Connemara class. She won a good class and was Reserve Champion Connemara having been a brilliant 2nd in the ridden Connemara class. This could not have happened but for a fantastic effort from Lynsey and Judith.
