This past weekend we cleared out the upstairs rec room and moved Eric’s air hockey game from the basement to the rec room. Kathryn cleared out a lot of stuff from her Dad’s house and work related files.
I bid good bye to my championship show ribbons. When I got rid of the horses and cleaned out all the show ribbons I save those ribbons that we received for Championships or Reserve Championships from shows at Barneveld Horsemen’s Association, Harmony Acres, Booneville Fair, Fonda Fair and NYS Fair. Most of the Championships were for day end point totals; either total points or as Senior Western. There was a NYS Horse Council award, a large purple ribbon from winning a day point total at Booneville Fair. I believe the Booneville Fair award was based on the horse and included a costume class. I think Gayle Farr rode Tom in the Ladies Western Pleasure class to help add to his point total that day.
There were a couple of year end awards from BHA.
This was an impressive collection that brought back fond memories.
