Since my last post I had my last show with Kevin and made great progress with Huck.
The show went quite well. I was happy with Kevin's behavior and performance. I just tried to relax and enjoy the weekend since it was our last show of the season and my last ever show with Kevin. We ended up in the top 5 for all four of our classes! 2nd in Horsemanship, 3rd in Ranch Riding, 4th in Green Boxing and 5th in Green Reining.

The gal that was only .5 behind me for the Green Versatility buckle didn't come to the show so I know I increased my lead. The year-end results haven't been announced yet so I can't be certain exactly where we are in the Buckle race, but I'll let you know when I know! A few other greenies had a good show, too.

.... and allowing his girlfriend's owner to come take her horse away from him. I started schooling him on this tonight, making him stay well back while I haltered her and led her into their run-in stall and into the barn aisle. I took a stick/string with me and he understood the message.
But, under saddle he's a saint, just goes and does his job. We even ponied him with the ATV down to the creek last night with four dogs running around and he wasn't bothered at all. He went right into the creek when B led him in (she was wearing water boots, I was not) and was really chill for his first adventure into the woods.
