International Hunter Futurity National Finals at Kentucky Horse Park (video)

I was so proud of my babies.  I rode my two babies, Hercules & HuH and a third horse owned by a client in this competition.  They each jogged in every class.  I do all of my own training and prep.  When you take a baby to a show, everything is still new to them.  Prepping a baby can require more time and energy than prepping a seasoned horse.  I was so proud of my babies.  They showed up, accepted the change in environment and went in and “did their job”.  We found all the jumps out of a great soft rythym.  I was late with one lead change on “Hercules”…….and “Huh”, who I hadn’t schooled any changes on, because he is still growing into his body parts, gave me every change, but one.  I was originally planning to do simple change with him, so I was really pleased with this.  I purchased “Hecules” and “Huh” out of a field in Tennesse.  I wanted two babies to train and bring along.  I am  so happy with “my boys”.  I think “Hercules” is going to make a great “derby horse”  and “Huh” could be a great junior hunter.  My goal is to begin to focus on the jumpers, but I plan to enjoy the journey of bringing “my boys” along in the “hunters”.  Lizzy
