So here is the video of the trail class.
I really think the stranger that I asked to film did a great job. The pattern called for leading in and across the first 2 poles, then mounting to do the rest until the end then get off and lead out. So the 2 leading parts are where I got my 3 points.
As I said yesterday, J showed back up on Saturday. What a life saver.
And beautiful V joined us Saturday afternoon, so my cheering section doubled.
This is where I spent most of my free time, out on the hill letting Sweetwater graze.
She ended up selling for the minimum of $200, to a women that really seemed to know what she was getting into. She had stopped by our stall earlier and was not intimidated to go in. She commented on what a difficult horse she was. They had watched the trail class and said at the time what a difficult horse she was. They said that the grey horse you could stand up on was nice but boring. They wanted a challenge. So she went in the stall, haltered her and lead her right on to the trailer and off she went.
One of the other horses didn't even get a bid and came back through at the end and went for $200. One other brought $200 and 4 went for $300. The high seller was $6000. 12 went over $1000, anywhere from $1300 to 6000. Seven went back home with the trainer.
More thoughts tomorrow.
