Day Six: Your most accomplished horse
Well, I have only ever had my Gen, but I don’t think that is what they mean. I wasn’t sure if they mean the number of ribbons or the kind of ribbons. If it is the kind then Gen wins hands down. These are all the ribbons that Gen won (minus 1 which is in a shadow box). Gen and I only went to 6 shows (or was it 5) so I would say that it is a really good haul for a very short lived show career.
If you are thinking quantity over quality…well…let me go count.
Hahaha…guess which horse I won the most ribbons on?
Phoneix! Hahaha…I love it! Go figure! He beat out Heart by 4 ribbons. Those hunter shows I did with him really pushed him over the top. I am not sure if I should be proud or sad that my most accomplished show horse was one that I only rode for 18 months who was barely broke when I started with him. He and I won 36 ribbons in our time together, which might not sound like a lot, but considering we mostly did dressage shows I am really proud with that.
How would you define the term “most accomplished horse”?
