Taylor spent Feb-July, 2001 in Kentucky under Stacey Ryan's education. She began her show career Memorial weekend in Edinburgh, Indiana, winning first place (and one AQHA point in Junior Hunter Under Saddle. My first time showing her was a success also - we earned 3 firsts and a second, and won the circuit championship in NA Hunter Under Saddle at the MEKQHA Circuit in June of 2001. We also earned two second places in NA showmanship. She is such a fun horse to show, she is very easy-going and enjoys all the attention from everyone!
Taylor earned 4th in the Non-Pro 3yo Hunter Under Saddle class at the Southern Ohio Futurity., She also earned 8th in the open, plus won the NA Hunter Under Saddle under both judges out of 13. This is probably the worst win photo ever taken in the history of show photographs!
Taylor at the Kentucky Futurity, September 28-30, 2001. That's my good friend Dean standing next to us! We won our first showmanship class at this show, at 8:00am after leaving Ohio at 1:30 in the morning and driving all night to get there just in time to show. I don't remember much about my pattern, I guess it must have been OK!
