As others have said, Nationals was so much fun this year and there were so many outstanding horses! I saw some of the forum members show but not nearly all of them. So post your results!

I did well with the horses I showed:

Oneka's Excitement in the Heir (blue Roan)

Youth halter Jr. Stallion under -National Top Ten 3rd (owned by Carrie Rudeen)

Send A Message SOS (palomino)

Youth halter sr. mare -National top ten 6th

Youth Pleasure driving under National top ten 7th (owned by me[Chelsie Kohns] and Carrie Rudeen)

Oneka's SE Dandys Simmer Down (bucksin pinto)

Youth pleasure driving over -National Top ten (9th or 10th I cannot remember)

Youth roadster over-National top ten 6th (owned by John Votca and Carrie Rudeen)

And I didn't place with my red roan gelding Winning Color's Hijacker SOS in halter or driving, but his classes (and all of the classes) had so so many good horses, so there is always next year!

Okay it's your turn I want to hear!!

Well i already posted my results but will post a embarassing moment.... going into ammy over mares with my horse who really feels she is done with halter (this was her last year showing) as we trotted past the judges thank goodness on the other side of center ring so not everyone could see she bit my butt HARD and stupid me stops and looks behind me to see who grabbed my behind... lol the judges were laughing at me sigh i am such a boob sometimes

we did manage to pull off a 10th in that class there was like 35 horses or so but to be honest i dont know how we pulled it off there were very very nice horses in that class and not sure i personally would have placed mine.

Hey, did you ever get around to selling Flare?

Anyways...

I pulled a top ten in jumper ((4th)) with Dealer. That was pretty cool. Peanut didn't have a chance in the jumping classes, and sadly we didn't place in showmasnhip, but I am still proud of him.

As you said Nationals was a blast! I don't know if I had more fun showing or hanging out with friends back at the stalls all night, one day just seemed to roll into the next it was like one big party!!

LOL, Lisa, I'm glad to hear I wasn't the only one getting bitten during halter classes, I think my mare grabbed onto me atleast 6 times during her youth class not on the butt though! That's a great story!
heehee

Anyways here's what I got with my two (I'll check in a bit what my mare and costume class were out of):

Sprucelane Little Sandy:

Youth Halter Mare 13-17, under - 3rd

Havenwest Reverend J:

Youth Costume, Under - 9th

Youth Halter Obstacle, Under - 8th out of 73

I also placed in the top ten in the Junior Judging thursday night.

6th out of 27 in B youth Country Pleasure 13-17

10th out of 26 in 3-4 y.o. Country Pleasure Driving Over

New Hope's Sweet Dreams - A yearling mare aka Dreamer

)

And the Star of our farm:

7th out of 27 in Youth Versatility under

10th out of 73 in Youth halter obstacle under

For those who do not know our Starstruck - he came from the slaughter yard and has been 100 % trained by a child (driving and jumping and sidepassing) and her mom (obstacle)!!!!

Heather (at 14) decided he should go to "real" shows and took her money for getting her drivers license and used it to hardship him into AMHA/AMHR so that he could show this year!!

Of course, would have been nice for her to be able to help drive this yr - even if only on permit

ALL the credit, of course, belongs to Erica Killion on the wins with the two colts I have coming from her. I feel very lucky to have three horses coming from her (the colts she showed at the Nationals, and "Sunny" who's got his own big set of bragging rights).

With Erica's Echos of My Destiny in ammy jr. stallions, under, she got 5th out of 54!!!

And with Erica's Gone and DunIT in open weanling stallions, 28" and under, she got 7th out of 39 (and it was the first time DunIT has ever shown!).

I only got to take Doors as we are going to the World show next week. But what a blast we had anyhow.

Woodstock North Dominos 3 Doors Down took National Champion Jr Amt. Stallion 33-37 yeah Doors there were 32 or 36 in the class!

He got 9th in futurity 2 yr stallions 33-37

Doors got Reserve National Champion in 2 yr stallions 33-37

Well worth the drive and alot of fun.

Got to thank Nancy of Woodstock for selling him to me I bought him when he was 6 days old. She has his full brother for sale, wish I had more room.

We had a wonderful time at nationals and I am very, very proud of my family. Everyone worked very hard all year long and it really paid off. My husband surprised everyone and was the "star" of the family winning two national champion titles and two reserve champion titles in addition to several top tens. My 10 year old daughter just learned to drive this summer and was reserve champion in youth roadster and youth pleasure AND in youth versatility. My seven year old son also was wonderful and had several top fives. I did OK myself even though I was sick and tired and feeling very pregnant and had to borrow clothes to wear because I didn't have anything that fit or looked right. I am also really proud of the four horses we took......Phantom (Classiques Phantom Gold), Rumor (Quail Creeks Rumorhasit), Lad (Bertrands Irish Lad) and Buddy (Whispering Hill Farm Magician). They are all stars and very special to us and all four came home with at least one champion or reserve champion title. We owe a lot to Tim and Renee Bush (Claybury Miniatures in MN). Renee taught us pretty much everything we know about showing and driving and her patience was amazing. There were times we would drive an hour and a half and spend 3-4 hours at her barn at a time and she would be patiently working with our family, one or two of us at a time with kids running around and playing in the dirt in the arena getting in the way while she would be trying to teach us how to drive and show.

Hopefully I get this right and it isn't too hard to read and things are not quite in order but it was just easier to just copy and paste it from the online show results than to type it all out.........

Hope I didn't miss anything...

We are all totally exhausted and I have tons of work, cleaning and laundry to catch up on here at home but it was all worth it and we had a great time. We got to meet some forum members, made new friends, reconnected with old friends and in general just had fun and one adventure after another as a family.

OH...HAD TO ADD.....one of the "adventures" was me deciding I wanted to try and get a fun family photo of our whole family, the four horses and all of the plaques, platters and ribbons to hopefully use as a christmas card photo this year. Cramming everything in on the AMHR backdrop and getting kids smiling and horses looking perky with ears up and all was NOT easy. My three year old was exhausted and it took a lot of bribery from the photographer to get him smiling instead of crying and complaining.

Well I don't have any pictures from Nationals yet as I ordered quite a lot from Jack so will be anxiously awaiting them.

Congratulations to all of you!



Wow - what a bunch of wonderful horses and what great results in such large classes.

We're planning on going next year, and think we'd better start now to get our horses ready - the Forum members definitely have some tough competitive horses!

Congratulations again - and thanks to all that have been providing updates and photos - they've been enjoyed!

I'm late getting home from Nationals, and haven't been online for over two weeks, but I want to share my results too.


My three year old mare, Magic Mist Wildfire, was National Champion Halter in the 7 and Under "over mare" class. Ok so there were only three in the class, lol! But I got a lot of compliments on her as well.


My new filly, NJ's Kinda Like A Cat, took 7th in the weanling under Futurity.

And my gelding, Magic Mist Color On Fire, took 6th in Amateur Versatility, 7th in Adult Jumper, and 9th in Gentlemens Driving (all over). He stepped on a rock and came up lame and I had to scratch several of his classes, which was disappointing, but he's doing fine now. I was very happy with all of my horses and had a great time!

Unanimous National Champion Senior Stallion, Over

Unanimous National Champion Senior Stallion 34"-36"

Unanimous National Champion Amateur Senior Stallion, Over

Now, no time to celebrate, we gotta' get ready to get the heck back out of here before Rita floods the place. God has a funny way of keepin' ya' humble.

We didn't get to stay but for the youth and ammy weekend, I soooooo wish we could of stayed for the whole thing. I really hate it I didn't get to see Redi and his retirement run.
It just about got to me knowing everyone was still there and we were back home. Where is that green with envy smilie? Work and school is such a head ache at times! I've already posted what we did on a thread when we made it home, but it just feels so good to post again


Our 2 year old gelding-- H Smokin' Colt Pistol--

Reserve National Champion in the youth 13-17

Reserve National Champion in the amateur class

National Top Ten-9th place- Amateur Incentive Gelding

Our yearling stallion over-- Mini h Smokin' Most Wanted--

National Top Ten--5th place in youth 13-17

Our yearling mare under--Erica's Oh Bay-B Bay-B--

National Top Ten--6th place in youth 13-17

We took our 2 year old stallion (co owned with Erica) that was Reserve National Champion in 2004 (with Erica), Erica's Smoke Rings In the Dark, he did not place in the youth or ammy but I have no problem with that. He showed his little heart out and looked great as far as I am concerned. He was hugged and praised just like the others. There were some beautiful stallions in that ring with him.

Oh, Melissa, what a bummer!
I have a friend whose horse got a respiratory infection on the way there too, luckily the mare is doing ok, and he had another horse with him that was just fine, so he got to show still. But how disappointing for you! Better luck next year I hope!!
