Horse shows bring back lots of great memories for me. I can't go to too many because I much prefer doing over watching! It's wonderful to see those perfect partnerships, where the disposition of rider & horse suit each other just right. Character trumps perfection here. It doesn't really matter how they stack up in any particular class, it's much more about how well they learn from each other. Best are the kids and their ponies.... where imperfection can be the most perfect thing of all.
