Aubrey's 4-H Competition This Afternoon

@kobesbuddy (44101)

August 14, 2017 1:43pm CST
Today, our five year old granddaughter was competing, in a 4-H horseback-riding show. Her parents were both there, to give some words of encouragement and for moral support. For the first time ever, Aubrey didn't rebel again wearing her riding attire. At the last show, she took a lower rating, because she wouldn't conform to this rule:( I guess some of us have to learn these lessons, the hard way! Just like her Grandma Jolly did:( Anyway, Aubrey received another blue ribbon, for coming in first place! 'Thata Girl!'

@LovingMyBabies I always wanted a horse, growing up. We were quite poor, so my parents couldn't afford to have that added expense. My daughter never mentioned getting a horse, but lately she took an interest in learning how to ride. Aubrey goes to class with her mother, so it's something they enjoy doing together!:)

@rebelann Aubrey's mother wasn't sure how those lessons would work out. Now, it's obvious that she's enjoying this sport, very much!

@just3him Yes, she sure did learn a lesson, the hard way! Her first show, Aubrey came in sixth place because she refused to wear riding boots or a number on her back. The judges all marked her down for that and every one stated why they had judged her performance lower. She was upset!

@kobesbuddy I'm sure she was. It's a good lesson to learn this early in her life as I feel competition is going to be a big part of her life. Better to learn it now than later.
