More than 50 kids hopped on their horses and came out of the gates last night ready to make their mark at the horse show.
Some were absolutely awestruck by the prospects of being in the main ring in front of a sellout crowd.
Others were on the move galloping around the arena floor.
But be careful, even a stick horse can stick it to you. This cowpoke was thrown from his mount, but he brushed himdelf and got right back in the mix.
This is the only event during the entire week long horse show in which every participant earns a blue ribbon.
