November 7 was a beautiful, sunny day for the Flying Dollar Ranch in Italy to host their make-up Halloween Schooling Horse Show and Playday, which was postponed due to heavy mud the previous weekend. Twenty-one entrants competed for ribbons and Halloween prizes in halter, English, western, speed and costume events.
Many exhibitors commented on how much fun they were having and how much they were learning at a schooling show.
“This has been so much fun we want to come to more shows here. This has been a great place for me kids to practice showing, while not getting stressed out about it. They are just having fun!” said Theresa Lewis of Palmer, who competes regularly on a national level with her Paint Horses.
Flying Dollar Ranch will schedule more shows and events for 2010. To keep track of their events log onto their website at www.flyingdollarranch.com.
