Month: December 2014
We attended the Goldmine Circuit, a four-day, three judge horse show of awesomeness! We attended the very first Goldmine and we never miss it, it’s now in it’s fourth year and it continues to grow and amaze its participants. Carolyn Dobbins puts the show on and I have known her for many years, this lady is hands down one of the nicest people I have ever met. I really appreciate everything she does and how hard she works to pull this Horse show off! I can honestly say My daughter and I are blessed to have met her and I’m grateful for all she does for the kids at her shows. They all feel so special and loved by her.
The horse show is an all breed show with crazy amazing prizes and endless fun. The photo booth was a fun event and of course, shopping all the vendors made getting some Christmas shopping done. This year was really exciting because in the walk/jog all ages class they had 70 entries! The turn out was so great they ended up having four cuts, two semi-finals, and then the finals. One lucky participant won a western show saddle. (Bling!)
Briar looks forward to this show all year! Weeks leading up to it, is like Christmas! Non stop talking about how much fun she is going to have. This year was especially exciting because she took Belle and they did well at the show. Briar participated in both English and Western events, a total of 14 classes. She placed in every class and won an English Saddle. She also won numerous other prizes, it was such fun!
As I said it was Briar and Belle’s first time. Briar has been working so hard with her other horse Bingo and he is such a great horse ( He has my heart). No matter how hard they work, Bingo just can’t take her to the next level. So, Belle is the horse who has a few more skills to get her there. I’m so very proud of my daughter and both of her horses. We have been blessed beyond measure, with two loving animals, a talented trainer and a great show family! Without all of them, this could not be possible!!!!
Thank you, Carolyn Dobbins, Lisa Bullock, LCB Show Horse Family for all that you do for Briar and every other horse lover! You do so much more than you will ever know 🙂
I highly recommend this show, located at Westworld in Scottsdale Arizona held usually in the month of December.
3 to 5 cups bran
1 tablespoon salt
1 carrot, diced
1/2 cup molasses
2 cups sweet feed
Dissolve crushed candy canes in 2 to 3 cups of boiling water and let water cool to warm. Then, mix all ingredients together except sweet feed in a feed bucket. Add more warm water to make it soupy, rather than crumbly. Cover with towel and let stand until cool. Right before serving, spread a thin layer of sweet feed over the top and sprinkle on a crushed candy cane to garnish.
