Bishop Mule Days - May 20, 2009

The second day of competitions is over, and Bishop Mule Days is well under way!

This morning many contestants were busy in the Hunter/Jumper classes. There were so many entries that those classes ran over, and they were late starting the afternoon show!

I spent the morning working with my gelding, Knight, and riding him around the fairgrounds in preparation for his events later this week, so didn't get any photos of the Hunter/Jumpers this year.

This afternoon I had the pleasure of watching the Mule Gamblers Choice Driving Prelims and Donkey Gamblers Choice Driving classes. It is really a treat to watch these versitile equines go through their paces in completing these challenging obstacles! Here are the top two placings in each of these two classes:

Single Mule Gamblers Choice Driving Prelims (finals will be later this week):

Tuff Stuff driven by Tim Phillips


Apples Peaches & Cream driven by Dawn Marie


Donkey Gamblers Choice Driving:

Redman's Back N Black driven by Tim Phillips


Sycamore Springs Jake driven by Dan Holland


Tomorrow morning starts bright and early (6am) with Mule Dressage in the east arena. Check back soon for more fun photos and updates!
