We've been working on the basics, mostly at a walk.
It's been fun for both of us.
The next show on my calendar is the Field of Dolls Online Show.Unlike the Pandemic Performance Panorama or the Mares in Black Spooktacular Photo Show, this is a standard, three section (Other/English/Western) performance show with a handful of fun classes. Realistic backgrounds are not required, but I know that as much as I love the look of a whiteboard entry, most performance judges prefer an arena setting. Several years ago, I built an indoor arena backdrop. I used it for a while, but eventually, I got tired of setting it up and tearing down. It got packed away, and I went back to white board.
I entered all four divisions of the Mares in Black Spooktacular Photo Show, but Performance - Consistency was the basket in which I put most of my eggs. Instead of relying on old pictures, I took ten brand new photos specifically tailored for each class.
|Not going to lie, I've done it, too. This is Dun Up Purdy's games class entry at Wild Wild West 2007.|
The Mares in Black Spooktacular Photo Show had four divisions, two of which (Halter and Performance - Specialist) were judged on Saturday. Results for the Performance - Consistency and Fun divisions were posted Sunday. Today, I'm once again following Anne Field's lead and focusing on the Fun division.
Here are some more pictures from the costume contest at Saturday's Halloween barn party. Enjoy!
