This first one is Pat, the director of the therapeutic riding program and Travis's senior instructor. He likes her a lot. This is Anna, Travis's intern instructor. She is licenced with the state but wants to be licenced by NARHA. Elecktra is excited that she gets to help out and finally can touch the horses without getting in trouble.
This one is because action shots are fun!
Number 196 is all ready to go (and looking very cool).
The paparazzi were there as well.
I really wish I had taken a photo of the trail coarse diagram. I didn't think of it until we were on the way home though. Maybe Leora will still have it at the barn (it was big and color coded!). Anyway, this was the first circle.
Here is a very nice whoa.
Steering through the cones.
Perfect jump position (is it better with your eyes closed?).
Another action shot. The beanbag went right into the hoop. The judges (were right above him for this one) and they sounded impressed with this as well.
The outcome... second place! Great job Travis!
And the group photo. This was the only one I had where Travis didn't look really bored. The little girl was not really upset, she just looks it in this photo. The other ones I have she looked happy (and as I mentioned, Travis looked really bored).
So it was a good day and I got these and may more photos. I am thinking of having the doll in my set-up do jumping position. Not sure I can pull it off but it would be interesting.
