He did amazing! He just does everything that I ask of him. Whenever we dont place its always rider error, lol. He got first in Pleasure Gelding, third place in Color Halter, then he won grand champion in Halter. I was totally shocked! We also took fifth in Walking Trail. Its always a learning process with more learning for me; I dropped the rope going through the gate. Overall I\'m so proud of my handsome man. Each day makes me so happy and grateful. Love my Ivar!"We truly enjoy being in each others company. Were still bonding, but it getsbetter and better every day." On Saturday, April 22, 2023 we participated inNorcos Horse Week paradein Norco, California. Norco is known for being Horse Town USA. The parade went straight down Sixth Street to the George Ingalls Equestrian Park. This was Ivars first parade and my second. He did amazing, never putting a foot wrong. Im so proud Ivar is such a good ambassador of the Norwegian Fjord breed. I was joined by Karen Kleveno and her handsome boy PF 12-Gage. It was so nice to be with lots of friends who have done a lot of parades. It definitely made it easier for both myself and Ivar to be able to follow the calm, well behaved horses and riders. We had an amazing day. 14 Fjord Herald Issue #147Summer 2023'
