I will most likey have to make multiple posts to get all the photos in....once i get sheryls permission i might throw in a few from her farm too. So this is your warning, this page is is going to be very photo heavy.

Left on tuesday around 11:30pm for Sheryls farm in TN...arrived around noon wensday at sheryls farm (12'ish hour drive). As most of you know this was my first Nationals, and i went with Sheryl and Ernie to help and be an extra set of hands when needed...had a fun time although i swear it felt like we arrived...clipped bathed clipped bathed clipped bathed clipped bathed then clipped some more and left. It was fun though and had a great time. Overall had a great time, watched many of the halter classes which was what i was most looking forward too. We roomed with Dana (ruffian) and Deana all week. On saturday (i think..?) we visited the Martins Pony Farm in OK, they have so many beautiful ponys for the picking and any one of them could have came home to live here, there was one filly that really really cought my eye ..but she was already taken (Mrs Stassle
). I will get onto the pics now...i'll do National photos first...

The Water'N Hole ....a personal faverite place to visit. Many pit stops made here while venturing threw barn B




JC's Jenga the National GRAND Champion Stallion Over and I after the presentation of the grand class



We had a few center ring visitors during the grand champion stallion class....



Ernie and Jag getting harnessed up for their Country Pleasure Class



Yacky yacky yack....on the phone with either Judy or Frannie between classes



You can insert your own caption for this one but i believe it speaks for itself




Who could these eyes belong to? ....Jill would you know?




Belinda and one of my faverit stallions Good Man Charlie during the SR Stallion Over class, owned by Mike and Lisa



Catch and Lee

Wow Leanna those pics are all awesome, thanks for sharing. I wish I could have been at Nationals but I couldn't get the time off work, maybe next year.

I think we should make a Canadian contingent to go down, we could rent a bus
It would be a blast, with a stop at the Horse Park. If we start saving now. We could even pick up some others along the way.

Thanks for posting such great pictures, Leanna!

Love the behind the scenes pics!


And yes, the Martins bred miniatures long before they started in Shetlands. Many, many famous horses have come from their farm.
