There are very few opportunities to show performance in Colorado. In fact, because I've judged the last couple shows, I haven't competed locally since the High Plains Live Model Horse Show in early 2012.
That's kind of sad.
Fortunately, there's a light at the end of the tunnel. I will not be judging at Springamathing this year, and even though the show is still several months away, I've already started working on my entries. In particular, I've been working on Lady Liberty's Western Pleasure set-up.I have more Western Pleasure dolls than I will ever use, but Lady Liberty is a true Purdy horse. She demanded something in pink.
Happily for both us, I was able to acquire this lovely Joan Yount doll in trade.
Love the details on her boots!
I made a pad that matched her outfit...
and now the set-up is almost complete. I still need to finish the breastcollar, but other than that, this is ready to go.
I guess that means it's time to start working on her English entries. Hmmmm. I wonder if that's going to require another pink doll...
