Kirstin was brought back into the arena. She demostrated Remy's skills, sidepassing, backing, trotting at a lead, stopping, turning. Remy does it all very well, she just didn't do well for the show. Finally a nice lady raised her hand and took Remy. At least Kirstin knows that Remy is going to a good home. She was able to speak with the new owner briefly and was assured that she will be well loved and taken care of.
Goodbyes are always the hardest part of these shows. Many asked why we didn't want to take this horse home. Simple we already own 6 other horses and the reason Kirstin does the makeovers is not to get a cheap horse, but to hopefully introduce people to what she already knows; that the Mustang is a wonderful horse and partner.
|Walk thru for the in hand portion of the show|
|Catch and release portion of the in hand course. Remy did alright but she really liked being set free and didn't want to be caught.|
|Kirstin wanted to do a Breast Cancer Awareness theme for her stall decorations. She had a banner at the top that read "Fight Like a Girl!"|

|Remy appears to be flying. Kirstin's dad is in the process of building some new jumps for her. This is one of the jumps, there will be a series of 4|
|Remy trotting over the posts. Love Remy's head carriage. She has a very natural, low head carriage.|

|Working on the side pass. Kirstin can side pass Remy around the square. It isn't the best yet but she is working on it daily. Hopefully by show time, she will be able to do a nice side pass all the way around the square.|
