Futurity Fun

Rio went to the Pennsylvania Quarter Horse Association's Futurity over Labor Day weekend. Because Tia's breeding was purchased through PQHA's QIP program we're automatically eligible for the QIP Futurities for Rio's first three years. I really didn't expect to win any classes as Rio is not halter bred. I really just wanted to show off my baby! She wasn't the biggest or most beautiful filly at the show but she was certainly the best behaved! If it was a beauty contest she would have won for "Miss Congeniality". I could hear many passer-bys say such comments as "That little filly is better behaved than my dog" and "Do you show her in showmanship? I can tell you've worked with her a lot". Showmanship...LOL...she's JUST a weanling I thought. We arrived a few days before her classes so she could get acclimated to the surroundings and so I could get a good parking spot for our little weekender goose neck trailer. She settled in very well. I took her for frequent walks around the showgrounds so by show day it would all look familiar. After the sun went down and it was darker she was a bit more alert and became a little jittery a few times. It really was the first time I walked her any length of distance in the dark and I think the large outdoor lights created some spooky shadows. But overall she handled the weekend very well and I was so proud of her. We ended up winning a respectable 3rd, 4th, and 5th placing.
