The first show of the season was a success. The FCEA show team hosted 32 rides under judge Cynthia Stephens. The weather cooperated by watering the ring the day before the show, and not baking us on show day. The wonderful competitors gave us many kind comments, and the show staff smiled through the day. Thank-you to the Howell's for allowing us to use their beautiful facility.
