2012 Indian Artbeat Foal Update: Trouble

August 24th, 2015

Me and Trouble 3

Received this note and photo from Michelle about her 2012 Indian Artbeat foal: Trouble …

Hello Marie!
 
I just got home from the Region One AQHA show in Monroe, WA this weekend, where we competed in the Rookie Am HUS and Level 1 Am HUS. Even with NASCAR races going on right on the other side of the arena, Trouble was as quiet as can be. My trainer likes to joke that his name is pretty ironic and I should rename him to Coffee Break or Cadillac LOL. Out of 13 in the Rookie, we tied for 1st and ended up 2nd after the tie breaker judge and in the Level 1 out of 14, we tied for 4th and ended up 5th under the tie breaker judge, which means we are qualified for the 2016 Novice Championship West in Las Vegas!!!
 
He turned quite a few heads at the show when we were out riding around. I sure love my Artbeat baby! 😊 Here is a picture after the class with our prizes.
 
Thanks,
Michelle
