From Rags to Riches...

Faith made the trip to the fairgrounds very well! She loaded nicely and seemed quite content with the process. Here she is, standing on the trailer waiting patiently for me to fire the truck up...
In her new temporary stall at the fairgrounds...

In the show arena with Lucy... Faith worked quietly despite the change in surroundings. I have to give it to her, she may have quite the attitude, but she is a very smart, sensible horse.

Working on our half-halts... Boy does this big girl like to move! She was certainly feeling pretty darn good today!

And our final picture, Faith standing next to the center ring display!

After a few months of discussion, I have finally settled on a show name for Faith... "Rags to Riches". I think it suits her quite well, if I do say so myself. Your thoughts?!


  1. amazing! good luck at the fair with all your horses and students this week :)

  2. Awww that is perfect!
    I love the pic in her stall, she's like, "Room service!!!"

  3. I love that show name for her! She looks very happy in the ring!

  4. Loved the fair update and photos...as for Faith's show name, she really is a phoenix, a Trakehner Phoenix!

  5. Perfect name for her! I love your blog and have really enjoyed reading about her progress! Good luck to you all at the show:)

    P.S. I have signed up multiple times to google, blogger etc but always forget my name and/or password so it`s easier just to write as "anonymous"

  6. Best wishes for a successful show! I've been following your wonderful blog from the beginning & look forward to every entry on Faith's progress.

    We hope to stop by to say hi & wish you all luck tomorrow!

  7. Awesome awesome awesome! Faith looks fantastic as does your rider! Look at the hind leg on her, she can really move!
