I can not tell you guys how happy I am!!!! We had a GREAT weekend!!! The best news is that Trouper is back home and in his paddock.


I will try to post tomorrow with pics and more details, but I had to give an update tonight before I passed out from exhaustion. HA!


Trouper and I tied for 1st for Conditioning. We came in 5th in the In-Hand competition which left us in 4th place all around going into the final division. Then we took 17th in the Horse Course, which brought out over all placing to 12th.


Trouper didn't do very well in the Horse Course. He acted completely out of character and was very nervous with the audience, announcer etc. He was probably feeding off of my nerves, though. I was a wreck!!! I am still VERY please with our overall performance!!


I am so proud of Trouper!!


I am going to try to catch up on some long lost sleep now. I will try to update again with pics tomorrow.


Thanks to all who came to support me and for all of the good luck emails and texts!!

Just think, if he had been himself and was like he was when at home, you might have won that thing!!!! But, then, he would have went for thousands, and you wouldn't have gotten hoim, so things happen for a reason.

Take a much needed and deserved nap and rest! I look forward to all of the details when you have a chance, but will wait! Take care of yourself and family. I'm glad Trouper is home!
