Stupendous Sunday by Violette

Violette: Pretty Neighs, Everyone. Violette Reporting. Actually, that title should have read Stupendous Saturday but we are expecting more good stuff today, so we thought it would be OK.

We had a glorious day for the parade and my handsome young knight looked so good riding me! #1 was simply delighted!

Here we are getting ready to leave. He is carrying the colours of Midhurst, a town in England with which ours is twinned:

Here we are approaching the castle:

 Going up to the castle gate:

Our medieval castle is 1000 years old!

We were both pretty proud!

And here we are actually riding into the castle grounds like knights of old!

Look at these cool guys I met in the afternoon:

And I had SO MANY visitors!

I got braided up nicely:

They had a contest where visitors voted on who was the most beautiful mare. I won hoofs down! #1 was so proud of me!

It was a long, long day and I confess that, by the end, I was getting a bit annoyed, so I was very glad to go back to my field and be able to tell all my friends about my amazing day. #1 tells me that I am a wonderful breed ambassador and I should be very, very proud!

  6. Wow! Violette! I'm so happy for you! You certainly are a beautiful horse! I know #1 is proud! Violette, it doesn't surprise me you won the most beautiful mare! Your braids looked awesome and your rider was quite handsome. However, it was all you!!! What a wonderful weekend.
