    Default Just want to brag for a second....

    Since the Press Release is coming out I think tomorrow, I just wanted to say how awesome my horse Lad is.

    Here's what they have on FB now:

    For those who don't FB:

    Unbridled Lad, a 2000 Kentucky-bred son of Unbridled, out of Sheba Little, earned two special honors at the show. Much to his owner/rider Emily Daignault’s delight, he was chosen to receive the Jumper Style Award, an honor bestowed by the judge to the horse that demonstrates the best jumper style at each show. This award is sponsored by North Shore Designs and The Ginaven Family.

    Unbridled Lad also took the High Point Steeplechase Horse of the Show award with him back to Pennsylvania, having won good ribbons in our Saratoga Jumper Classes throughout the show. This special award was sponsored by Hounds Cry Farm in honor of all of the wonderful Chasers they have owned over the years.

    I am in the process of writing Thank You letters to the sponsors of these classes and great awards. I am beside myself to think of Lad as the best Jumper out of 70+ really nice Tb's at this show doing jumpers. I got Lad as a 4 yr old and we've gone from flat track to steeple-chasing to eventing, being a lesson horse, fox hunting and now jumpers. I really didn't believe in "heart horses" before him. Now.... well he just will never leave and of course he'll never die.

    Thanks for letting me share for a moment.

    Lad has his own FB page if you want to "Like" him:

    OK so can I just say.... this anonymous thumbs down thing sucks.

    If you don't like that I had a good weekend, why hit the thumbs down???

    Sorry to everyone else but that just rubs me the wrong way.

    How absurd that you'd get a thumbs down on such a happy post. Maybe a mouse click gone awry? At least I'd hope so.
