When I was nine years old I started taking lessons from my local horse instructor and was hooked. Ever since then I have been riding and competing at local schooling shows, and at rated competition. Zee and I were able to show up through our Regional Competition this year and did very well. At the end of this show season I also took one of my trainer's client horses to Arabian Sport Horse Nationals and successfully brought him through his and my first Nationals!
I have been training Zee how to jump over the last couple of years, and he very excitedly jumps anything I put in front of him. At the Scottsdale show we would compete in hunter hack, Sport Horse Under Saddle and Sport Horse In-Hand. Hunter hack is a class thy is judged at the rail and then over two jumps. Zee does very well in this type of class and I have no doubt that we will have a competitive edge at Scottsdale. Sport Horse Under Saddle is a class that is only judged on the rail and does not involve jumps. Sport Horse In-Hand is a class that is judged only at the walk and trot and the horse is not ridden during the class but lead by his handler. At the Pacific Slope Championships Zee went top 5 and then Champion Gelding In-Hand. Because of these wins I know Zee and I will ribbon at Scottsdale.
It would be an honor to be able to compete at such a prestegious show on my own horse. Any amount helps, and the donations recieved would be used for gas money to haul Zee to and from Arizonia, show entry fees, and Zee's care at the show (i.e. bedding, special feed, etc.). I appreciate any and all donations and will share our results once we are safely back home!
