It's almost official!!

Well the ACTHA ride season ends tomorrow and my mare Hobo's Dream Girl will officially be a top 10 competitive horse!! She ended the ride season with a bang and brought home two ribbons for her last two events. Her points will place her 6th in the State of NM and in the top 100 nation wide. I'm so excited for her and really, really happy because it's only her first year EVER in competition!

Below are some photos taken at different ACTHA events and fun rides. This first one taken by Lisa From Laughing Orca Ranch is of Dream and I and my friend Donna and her horse just before the water and slicker obstacle at the Estancia ACTHA ride.

 Another photo from Lisa as we are doing the water/slicker obstacle.

Lisa also sent this one from one of our fun rides at San Acacia on the day before one of the ACTHA events. I so love the fun rides there because we got A LOT of water crossing training as you can see.

Another one of my friends took this photo of us at one of the San Acacia ACTHA events where we had to trot through the tunnel of Salt Cedar in the background and then circle and comeback out.

and the National and state standings from the ACTHA website.
