Horse show

Nicole competed in her first horse show of the 2006 season at the Riverdale Saddle Club in Southeast Knox County yesterday. She was entered in four classes aboard Earlmont Coup d'Etat, the granddaughter of Wing Commander, one of the greatest Saddlebred showhorses of all time.

Earlmont Coup d'Etat (we just call her "Baby") lived up to her pedigree, finishing first in one class, second in two classes, and third in one. Last year she blew away the field at Riverdale, making first in every class she entered but one. The competition last year, however, was not as good as the crop seems to be this time around. The horses and riders I saw last night were ready and well-trained and there were a few in there I had never seen before-most looked very fine and the judging was tight.

Nicole and "Baby" will be at Riverdale again next month.
