Fay's First Driving Show

Chafin Farm's hosted a driving show for the Willamette Valley Miniature Horse Club. But big horses could come and play too. We have so many friends down there in Sweet Home, it just had to go on the calendar. Neither Fay, nor the Fjords had ever done any kind of show at all. Fortunately they were all patient between our times in the arena competing. 

Discussing width of wheel base with the other two big horse competitors.
Eyeballing the competition, Fjords to Belgians to Fjord/Quarterhorse crosses.

Then there's the little guys, we weren't in their class.

Potluck lunch, talking breeds of draft horses.
Then back out to wait for our next turn in the arena and talking to Phred about setting lines and all the other details of harnessing and hitching.
Horses are so patient with our foolishness in pursuit of ribbons.

Way too many ribbons:


  1. Wow, look at all those ribbons! Great job!!! Congrats!

  2. Wow! That's a lot of ribbons! Congrats! Looks like a great time :)
