I see updates and photos periodically on FB of Winston and his new owner, Nicole. They were in a show this past weekend. I love this picture of them.
They did great. Nicole posted that they cleaned up with scores in the upper 60s and low 70s. Four blue ribbons.
I asked her if I could post an update and use her picture. This is what she had to say:
"Today, we rode training levels 2 and 3 because I wanted to qualify for a lower level in junior championships. He is definitely an "appy," with many of his antics present, but when he wants to be good, he is amazing. I've never been happier than I am now. Next year, he'll be moving up the levels and hopefully be starting 2nd level by the end of 2016."
Is that awesome or what?! It was hard for me to reach the decision to sell Winston. He was truly amazing when he was good. But, I couldn't handle the appy-tude. I'm glad he and Nicole found each other, that they have a great trainer, and that they are doing so well.
Happy trails Nicole and Winston!
