My daughter at the Royal International Horse Show 1st August 2010


My beautiful daughter, Kathy, competing at the Royal International Horse Show in the side saddle concors d'elegance costume class.

We were rather gutted that although the judge loved her outfit she couldn't award her a "place" as Ace (the horse) was too upset by annoying flies & was not behaving in his usual gentlemanly manner. The idea of the class is elegance & having your horse fidgeting & kicking out (even because of irritating flies) is not "elegant". I entirely agree with the judge - but the judge said Kathy would have come 2nd or 3rd! :-(

Never mind. Next time Ace will be drowned in fly repellent!

Enjoy the photo's!
