Regionals

I know, I know, I havn't written here in months. Probably no one will read this, but I may as well post it so I have it.

Ian went to regionals back in November and won Men's Preliminary Trot. Again, we are VERY proud of him. However, I did not get to watch as I got stuck in the barrel arena helping the judge.  I was ANGRY! But at least Brian videoed it for me. 
This is one of the first times Ian has ever vaulted on Max, so you can see him crawling up him. Max is a 17+ hand horse, so very tall.  He's also the most gentle, sweet natured creature in exsistance.

Since this time Ian has tried out for a position in team vauting in his club. There are 6 people on the team, onlt 3 of which will be on the horse at a time, Ian will be a "base" which means he's at the one that helps the "flyers" get up in the air. Basicly, he's the muscle. He's the youngest and at the same time the biggest and strongest on his team. What an amazing kid.
