Congratulations to Tonalist for taking first place in the 146th Belmont Stakes.
(He also came in first during the Peter Pan Stakes at Belmont Park.)
He’s a good pony sometimes
My favorite victory lap picture of mine everrrrr! It was my first year ever showing saddleseat, my first year at Rancho Del Mar, and that show was my horse’s first pattern (he was only 4). In this pic we hadn’t come close to earning white gloves. We both worked so hard, and we eventually got Reserve world equitation champion that year. That season showed me that you don’t need to schmooze judges or buy the fanciest horses. All you need is a love for the sport and for your horse, a desire to compete, hard work, and dedication. #2004 #ShermandellAsgard #sherman #ShermieTheMan #equitation #tbt
