Last night Hevans EV Pascalius was prepared for her first show, she is an amazingly quiet yearling, bathed, clipped, dressed over and braided with out a care in the world! Because Hevans EV Catorrius was entered, this meant two trips with the lorry so Evee was booked a stable the night before. She loaded and travelled beautifully and settled in the main barn at the ApHC UK Midland Show at Summer House Equestrian Centre, Gloucester.
Evee was entered in ApHC USA Reg – fillies/mares and Main Reg – Fillies 3 years and under. She won both classes and was awarded a special for the best yearling. This was a wonderful introduction to her showing career, Evee wasn’t naughty but scared. The judge was very obliging, I was allowed to encourage and relax the filly before leaving the ring on a “good note”. Very much appreciated, all the work at home vanished into thin air, there was so much for her to observe and I was relieved when her head started to lower!
Reus was entered in Best Condition & Turnout 3 years & under, ApHC USA Reg – colts / stallions / geldings and Main Reg – Colts 3 years and under. Again, taking first place qualified both horses into their own class Championships and Young Stock Championship.
Qualifying a colt and a filly in the Young Stock Championship meant an extra pair of hands!
My mother came to the rescue, as always!
Hevans EV Catorrius took the Championship with Hevans EV Pascalius as Reserve!
History repeating itself, it was only a few years ago, my Mother and I stood with Princesse Pascale and Peyres Catori Cat, the Dam’s of these young stock!
Such a wonderful experience again to be stood in the ring with my mother!
During the morning, to my delight two very good friends Frank and Crystal who I work with turned up at the show! These two people have years of experience with horses and are more than capable of dealing with any situation……..Evee & Reus were taken from me in turn as one went in the ring, one came out etc…….Frank walked Evee around showing her the sights of the showing world and Crystal ensured Reus was kept occupied out of the way of the fillies!
Phew…….so very much appreciated and so glad to have such GREAT FRIENDS! Thank you both x
