Erin Corbett doesn't like outhouses in performance entries, so of course, Heather decided that Rocky Mountain Spring Fling's performance division would include an Outhouse Class. Also of course, I immediately decided this was The Most Important Class of the entire show.
As luck would have it, I already owned a beautiful outhouse made by Alaina Richardson of Bookshelf Barns. I really wanted to use this, but I couldn't figure out how to make it work with a cantering pony.
Eventually, I decided to go another way. I bought two cheap, unfinished outhouses...
and turned them into a cross country jump. Teresa Buzzell helped me with the sponsor banner.
Since Erin loves snails even more than she loves outhouses, I decided to make a few of those to go on the jump.Okay, I made forty one of them. If something is worth doing, it's worth overdoing, right?
Then I asked Jana Skybova to make a snail themed saddle pad and fly bonnet. She was happy to oblige.
I was so excited to put this on the show table. It was truly a thing of beauty.Erin loved it.
She can pretend she didn't, but I know the truth.
Every show should have an Outhouse class. That was awesome.
