American Buckskin Registry Association (ABRA) World Show
Updated: Sep 27
Our first World Show, but definitely not our last.
Friends and More Friends
Vickie Corbett hooked up her new-to-us horse trailer with living quarters, loaded up Dea, grabbed Mom (Nancy Pearson, aka Nana) and headed to Tulsa, Oklahoma for the ABRA World Show. Once there, Vickie and Nancy were able to connect with Alicia Guard, who had bought one of Vickie's babies, Ziva. The show was amazing and the people involved were welcoming and friendly. Vickie and Nancy had a blast meeting fellow Buckskin enthusiasts and making new friends
Learning the Ropes
Vickie had shown before, but it's been a few years (or more). Showmanship and Halter showing really has changed! Vickie's plan was to follow what everyone else in her Halter class was doing. It would have worked, but at the last minute she found out she would be first to go into the ring. Whoops! Chris Byrd with 4B Halter Horses saw the panicky look in Vickie's eye and took pity on her. He very helpfully gave her a quick run down of what to do and lots of encouragement. Then he sagely reminded her, "We're all following you - If you screw up, we all screw up!”. Needless to say, Vickie did a great job and ended up placing 4rd in her class.
