Well, the video queen is back!!  In honor of the fact that I leave 4 WEEKS FROM TODAY for beautiful Scottsdale, I thought it was time to get pumped up!  Hope more than a few of you are heading to sunny, warm Arizona for the show.  Warning - as I've said before, if you've never been, you will fall in love.  Instantly.  And then you will be addicted.  Hopelessly.  ;)   I will be showing my main man, Sundance King R in HA Hunter Pleasure (all the old ladies to ride classes) and he will also show in Open with the fabulous Jennifer Quintus.  It's not too late to make plans to join us.....you won't regret it!

 

Can't wait to show this big, beautiful guy  :wub:

And without further ado - my fav video to start off the countdown!

It's 24 degrees here in the "balmy" South this morning.  :36_1_26:  All that sun and t-shirt weather are looking mighty good right now!

Can't wait to see your beautiful boy go! 

 

I have a few going. We are showing our partnership stallion, OFW Marlon, in the international with David Botha and he may show in the SSS ATH Aged class (waiting for confirmation he was nominated in utero). He was originally going to show in  hunter with me in the select but we made a last minute change as we thought this would be a better move for his promotion :) :

AO Breeze++/ is going in the open jumper, jumper stake, and gambler's choice (hopefully- there are "cuts") with Jackie Sutherland, He's also going in AAOTH halter and the SHIH stallion classes with my husband.

and then our partnership yearling Lyryc (ROL Intencyty x BHF Shahs Lullaby) will be making her debut in SSS ATH if she is ready (she went into training not too long ago).

Oh I'm just so jealous of you guys going to Scottsdale. Especially since real winter has finally descended. Ugh. It's been a few years since I've been (only to watch) and I totally miss the warmth that gives you the fortitude to make it to spring.

One of the really cool things about the Scottsdale show is the fact that, unlike Nationals, the Sport Horse competitors are there in full force.  I usually don't have a great deal of time during the week to get over to their ring, however, I try not to miss the Gambler's Choice Jump-Off on the final Saturday night.  A crowd favorite for sure!
