GENNI BUTTS TIES FOR HIGH POINT YOUTH.. On October 13th 2012 Kiwi Performance horses trainer Lilly King, and her students headed off to Pasadena to compete in their Hi Point Buckle Open Show. Christy Mullen took her paint gelding, Doug, and Genni Butts loaded her paint mare, Jubi . The show was well attended, with up to 15 horses in some of the Pleasure classes. The highlight of the day for all the kids was the costume class where the Jolly Green Monster won, with Pegasus close behind. There were probably 10 competing. They looked so awesome. Christy and Doug went to just do some Western classes and placed in all theirs and they really did look very good. Genni and Jubi went for the Buckle, and won theShowmanship and the Trail and were second in almost all of their other classes. Well done Genni. At the days end she tied with Jaylynn and after a tie breaker Genni came home with the Hi Point Reserve Buckle.
We are so very proud of our riders and we could not have asked them to have shown much better than they did. In all an awesome day at Pasadena. But the main thing was that we had the time of our lives. We really missed Moira Mathews and her horse Sonny being with us, as she had worked so very hard to get ready for the Hunter classes, but last minute was unable to attend the show with us due to ill health. CONGRATULATIONS to you all.
Always strive to be the BEST but take the disappointments with your head held high and as the stepping stones to perfecting yourself and your horse as YOU sometimes have to lose to become the BEST in the end.
Had a pretty exciting day yesterday. Headed out to the Pasadena Show (first show without my mom and dad too) and ended up tying for High-point but received Reserve after the tie-breaker. Either way I'm extremely happy with Jubi's performance; she's really turned into a dream within the past year; I honestly think this was probably my best show with her. Have to say thanks to such an awesome trainer who's willing to put up with me all day at a show (and let me ride back in the truck) (;, Thanks Lilian King, you're simply the best.
