Our weekend was full of excitement here! Our horsemanship program, PATCH by Design had its fall horse show! Nine participants ranging in age from 3 1/2 to 15 showed horses in three different classes. We had one riding class, a showmanship class and an in-hand freestyle class set to music with costumes! We followed it up with a pitch-in banquet and awards. It was a great day full of joy!
When I first saw the Scaredy Cat paper from CTMH, I was inspired to make the programs for the show. (I have to say, this is one of my favorite paper collections in the new idea book! I fell in love with this one the moment I saw it! I know Halloween is upon us, but I think I'll order more just because I love the Thistle!) I was unsure of the program design until I saw this pumpkin card in the new Artfully Sent cartridge. I wanted an interesting, fun program that would easily come together since I needed several of them. This fit the bill since the Cricut and my computer did all the work! I did color the pumpkin, glue the leaves, staple it, and tie the ribbons. Ribbon is from Michaels.
The text on the right is from CTMH Artiste written with the Cricut Violet pen. Leaves were cut from the CTMH Artbooking.
There were six pages in the program listing the classes, names of exhibitors, benefactors, program schedule, etc.
"Think it, feel it, do it" is sort of our motto here when working with horses. We serve children and teens with learning disorders, different life situations, ASD, DS, and other challenges.
I can't show pictures of the kids showing, but I can share a picture of the horse they named Horse of the Year! This is Thunder. The picture below was taken of him at the awards ceremony standing in front of the crowd. He was certainly the star!
I was so proud of all the kiddos, horses, and my amazing team who give so much of themselves every week! I am so blessed to watch horses change lives; it's a fascinating miracle!
