Octoberfest Horse Show at Donida

Jacquie and Vashon competed in the Octoberfest Horse show at Donida this weekend.  Why it’s Octoberfest in September, I don’t know. It rained Friday night, Saturday morning and most of Sunday.  We were luck for a break in the weather on Saturday afternoon.   Sunday – we weren’t so lucky.  We had to endure monsoon like conditions at times!   The barn cats even took refuge with us Sunday morning.

Despite the weather, Jacquie and Vashon had a great show.  They were the Children’s 1.10m Jumper division champion for the weekend,  winning 2 of the 3 classes and placing 3rd in another – this round was not pretty and they were extremely lucky to have even made it around clean the first round and then got lost during the jump off.

They also placed 2nd in the 1.15m Mini Grand Prix and 5th in the 1.10 m Children/Amateur Classic.


We shot mostly video at the show, but here are a few random pictures we did get:
