Well it was a long summer, but we were on a mission. Our mission was to win National Champion All Stars in each of the four multi-color classes that AMHR offers. I don't believe anyone has ever done it. The ad at the right appeared in the April 2008 issue of the AMHR Journal.
We ended up with three firsts (National Champions) and a 2nd in Top Ten All Stars...so it was close. So my question is: "Has anyone come so close before in sweeping this class?"
As a bonus we won All Star National Champion in Produce of Dam ... we figured out half way through the season that two of the horses were from the same mare...and started entering in that class as well.
Would we try winning National Champion in the four multi-color classes again...probably not. First you have to have four horses, each in a different category: stallion over and under 34 inches, and mare over and under 34 inches. Then there are other factors to consider...you have to enter lot of shows, (we showed every weekend for three months straight) and did I mention cost...there are entry fees, gasoline, hotel, food and equipment costs. It was a lot of fun, we met a lot of nice people and saw a lot of central United States...but I think in 2008 it will be one horse and fewer shows.
