Another year of Cowboy Mountain Trail Challenge has come and gone. Mickie, Bobbette, Lana and I were in awe of the amazing people who have chosen to spend their time with us. Once again we had to close entries a couple weeks prior to the event and we were blessed with warm sunny weather, lots of wonderful people and amazing horses.
Wild Cowgirl Horsemanship clients did a wonderful job at CMTC. Stephanie Johnson, riding Mackay, walked away with the All Around Cowboy title (open and amateur riders). They competed in 3 days of judged only trail, timed and judged trail, cow work, reining and cowboy pleasure to earn the title. I couldn’t be more proud of them. Stephanie has accomplished another goal and now she can move on to other goals that she has.
Niece, 12 year old, Makenzie Zessin riding Wyoming, moved up from the Cowpoke level to ride on the Cowboy level courses and was the only youth to compete with the adults at that level. She also competed in 3 days of judged only trail, timed and judged trail classes as well as cow work, reining and cowboy pleasure to earn the All Around Ranch Hand title (novice and intermediate riders). Needless to say the apple isn’t falling far from the tree. She likes the timed and judged trail competitions!
Other Wild Cowgirl clients competed and earned many successes as well. There are too many for me to remember, off the top of my head, and they have all made me proud as they accomplish goals and continue down the trail in their own journey with their equine partner.
In closing, I’m blessed to be allowed the opportunity to join their journeys.
