Callie’s First Horse Show

August 26, 2019 in Warrior Princess - 2 Comments

Callie had her very first horse show last month and I wanted to share the pictures.

I really hope this blog becomes almost an online scrapbook for her in a few years, capturing the amazing memories, small and large.  She will be able to scroll through it and be reminded of all of the incredible things she has accomplished!

The timing of the show could not have been better–we were coming off of a high of receiving her running blade and her self confidence was sky high.  She ended up winning first place at her event as well as taking home the “Best Posture” blue ribbon too!

I was so proud of her.  She was extremely nervous performing in front of her first large crowd but we held hands before the event and I reminded her that as long as she did her best she was already a winner to us.

Her little eyes sought mine out in the crowd after she dismounted and I have never seen her so proud of herself.  She met me with a bear hug and I might have had a few tear in my eyes.  This truly was the first time she’s done any type of competitive event and she won first place.  And not only that, she gave everyone else in her event hugs and high fives when they announced their places.  It was almost more touching to me that she was a good sport and a supportive teammate than her taking first place……she continues to amaze me with her sweet heart and kind soul.

We take the month of August off due to the heat here in Texas but our little rider can’t wait to get back in the saddle!!!

    Hi Y'all! I’m Jaime, a proud working mama, author, girl boss and wifey to an ultra-adorable husband. I am a huge book nerd, I drink coffee like my life depends on it, and run on dry shampoo and Amazon Prime. Leopard print is my favorite color. I am a story teller at heart and this blog is a virtual scrapbook of our crazy beautiful life. I'm a Type One Diabetic and our little warrior princess Callie is a lower limb amputee. By sharing how we’ve chosen to flourish in the garden we’ve been planted in, we hope you can take some small nuggets of hope, inspiration, and laughter. We are so grateful that you’ve found us—welcome to the fam. We embrace our perfectly imperfect lives and don’t let the doctor’s appointments, spreadsheets, speaking engagements, 10th birthday parties to plan, housework or date nights overwhelm us. Those things are just the beautiful reminders of all the blessings in our lives. Read More
