Appaloosa Youth Show Reserve Champion Addie Blinder shows off her trophy.
Blinder receives Leadline Reserve Champion
Addie Blinder, 7, recently was selected as the Leadline Reserve Champion in the World Championship Appaloosa Youth Show in the 6-years-old and younger age group.
Her sister, Lilly. 4, competed in the same age group and placed 13th out of 27 competitors.
The girls were required to display their equestrian skills before four judges in an arena full of onlookers.
“I had fun, but I was nervous as they were reading the winners,” said Addie, who also is leading her age group in show points for the year.
Both girls are used to performance anxiety — they have competed on horseback since they were 2-years-old.
Their mother and father, Jennifer and Larry Blinder, said they had no idea the girls would take to the activity quite like they had.
“I never had any idea they would get so involved,” Jennifer said.
Despite her success in the show ring. Addie said she did not know whether she would continue to compete as she grew up.
“I want to be a teacher, and it would be difficult to do both,” she said. “I might have to get someone else to teach my classes during the San Antonio Stock Show (and Rodeo).”
