The Winner is . . .

Look at the horse and rider who won the Half-Arabian and Anglo-Arabian Western Pleasure Championship.   The rider is very excited after receiving her ribbon. 

Notice the Championship belt buckle that she is wearing in the photo.  She has been in the winner's circle before.  You can also see the details of her fancy Western wear and the happy expression in her face.
 
The second photo shows the beautiful lines and golden-brown coloring of another magnificent horse. Look at the reddish-brown color of the mane, the alert eyes, and the muscular structure and lines of this horse.

The rider and horse had to execute various skills throughout the competition. The judges walked around the middle of the arena at the Equidome and made their notes and observations.

The third photo shows the winner's circle where ribbons were presented. You can see the pride of the owners of the horse and the smile of the rider. Ribbons for everyone! The horse, the rider, and the owners.

This is a nice series today. It makes one wonder how many hours of effort and practice, by the horse, rider, and others, have gone into producing the championship.
