"There was quite a crowd of spectators and the judges spent a moment with each horseʼs description and score to help educate and inform the guests what these inspections are about and how the participants met the breed standards.

During an intermission, Joan Clark, on KB Shakami Fahim, and Elaine Kerrigan, on Shagyaʼs Serena AF performed a dressage pas de deux.

Another very interesting part to this inspection was the newly developing Interior Test. All the participants of the inspection, evaluations and demonstration ride were maneuvered through a series of 3 basic obstacles. Again, the judges were very informative and explained the reactions of the horses. All the horses did a great job showing the fantastic disposition and trust of the Shagya.

As a reward for all their hard work, the judges were whisked away to watch a gorgeous sunset at the Pacific Ocean. This was a perfect end to a spectacular coast to coast inspection tour. Then is was back to a lively dinner provided by Joan Clark, who also graciously opened her and her husbandʼs home for the judges to stay."

Early Tuesday morning, Ahmed was on the road, headed back to Germany, and I headed back to Montana a little later in the day, still marveling over how smoothly everything had gone, and all of the nice people we had spent time with, and beautiful horses we had enjoyed. Our heartfelt thanks again to everybody who participated and cooperated to make this another great NASS InspectionTour!!
