Living vicariously

The next best thing to going to a live show myself is attending a live show vicariously through Tiffany.  She's showing at the Sleigh Rally Model Horse Show in Columbus, Wisconsin today, and my phone has been chirping happily as it receives one blue ribbon picture after another. 

This is Tiffany's newest all around performance champion, Purdy Zippin Chic.  She's shown wearing a BCS harness originally made in 2008.
Her huntseat tack is of the same vintage, but like the harness it looks almost brand new.  I try very hard to make my tack as durable as it is pretty, so these pictures make me very happy!
Although I didn't make any of Purdy Zippin Chic's Western gear, I still claim some credit for this win.
Under Tiffany's theory of community property, half these ribbons belong to me!
Purdy Zippin Chic wasn't the only Purdy performance winner.  Tiffilicious did her part with this win in a huge Showmanship class.
As much as I enjoyed all show photos, the best text message of the day included this picture. Squeee!   It's a team of Welsh Section A ponies pulling a sleigh.  Don't they look like Touch of Pink?
And here's a look at the couple who arrived in the sleigh.   How fun!
Thank you, Tiffany, for allowing me to have a most enjoyable live show experience from the comfort of my own home!

  6. I wonder- do other showers cringe when someone pulls out tack sets made by you, because now the competition is on? :D

  10. I had to show against her all day, and I'll say that I was pretty much in second all day...I showed my english set that you made for me, and I was almost consistently placed in 2nd in the english divisions with it, right behind Tiffany. So your work was definitely NAN qualifying at this show! I'll post a pic once I get them uploaded :)
