Oklahoma City, OK
I drove out on Wednesday to make it out to the Red Bud Spectacular! Which was recommended to go to by my Queen Mum. I spent the afternoon I arrived exploring a little bit around town and went to a place called Pinkitzle! The whole store was pink and glittery! I lovedddd being in the place and spent almost an hour shopping around. After getting a cupcake for myself, I ordered a whole dozen and brought them into the horse show with me the following morning.
At the Red Bud I ran into some old friends: Bob Kail who was judging and I scribed for back at the Sun Circuit in March, Monica who is the Oklahoma Quarter Horse Youth leader and I met back at the Central Novice Championship show, along with several of the office staff from the West Level 1 Championships and Tulsa Holiday Circuit.
Taking a pause for a moment, I want to say how proud I am of the OQHYA. They work so hard and do so much to fundraise for their Association. I loved chatting with them and I spent most of my free time sitting with them selling t-shirts and ice!
The Red Bud boasts massive classes and rightly so- at 11 days long, over 30 horses in the Amateur Horsemanship is amazing and upwards of 30 horses in cattle and roping classes rightly landed them 2nd in the list of the top 10 Quarter Horse shows posted February 10, 2017 by The Equine Chronicle.
Saturday night was a special event for me at the Remington Horse Park, Rein in Cancer hosted a dinner event at the last Quarter Horse Race of the season with a live and silent auction. Over $30,000 was raised in total and I was so honored to be a part of this event.
