The next one my niece gave him his nickname. He’s Annie’s first foal and if she wouldn’t have been such a good horse to use, I would’ve bred her again sooner. When Pilgrim was a baby, he was hauled to the AI site, pastures, and horseshows and spent a lot of time alone in a pen and tied to the trailer at different times during his first few months of life. He loaded easily and when being hauled, he knew that mom had to work, so just relaxed until she got back.

Sarah was involved in the horseless horse project and could borrow a horse to show at her fair. This was Sarah’s FIRST year of showing!!!
Commerce Bank in Leavenworth county sponsored a Montana
Silversmith belt buckle for each of the showmanship winners…Sarah was very proud of her first buckle win!!
On July 29, 2006 Sarah showed her at the Gosper/Phelps County 4-H horseshow held in Elwood, NE. She received a purple in Halter–3 and older mares and ended up being the Grand Champion Mare!!! She also earned a purple in Trail class, a blue in Showmanship and Horsemanship,
and white ribbons in Barrels and Poles.
At her first show she also was awarded a blue ribbon and a certificate for her win in Walk Trot!!

My niece learned a lot with Annie, Krysler and Buck. She competed in the Open Phillips County Horseshow on May 26, 2007 held for any and all kids 8-18 years old. She was the Champion of the 12-14 age group using three horses. Annie was only used in Showmanship at this show and Sarah received 2nd. Krysler was ridden in Bareback Horsemanship and the race events and Buck in Horsemanship, Trail, and Reining
On July 19, 2008 Sarah showed Annie at the Gosper/Phelps County 4-H horseshow held in Elwood, NE. She received Reserve Championship in Showmanship and a purple in Halter–3 and older mares (15 mares in the class).
She then took her back in for the championship and ended up being the
Grand Champion Mare!!! Grace and Buck were also used at this fair.
See each of their results on their individual pages.
Lori riding her at the 2002 KWHA state show in Key Race
Taken at the Kansas State Championships
held in Topeka the first weekend in May, 2003. She won the 4D in the district match race and qualified for the short-go in the 4D, but also ended up in the 3D a couple of times. She was quick and was improving all of the time.
At the Futurity/Derby and Open runs held in Scott City on October 11-12, 2003, there were Tanner Times that we could get.
In her fastest run of the weekend, she placed first in the Open 3D and the Tanner Time said that she was faster than the top three runners’ average on the second barrel and on the three turns combined. She had a tough time going back indoors at first
so we didn’t make it back to the finals in the Derby.
These two pictures were taken September, 2003
She was a good one to be on in the cattle pen, pastures, and roping pen plus she was nice to ride on trail rides,
but she also had a special place in the hearts of our niece and nephews (especially our niece).
These pictures are definitely older pix, but it shows how good she was with the younger generation. The younger generation has changed to different kids, but they still love her.
On July 22, 2006 Annie was shown at the KFQHRA horseshow in Plainville. She finished 1st in Working Cow Horse, Ranch Pleasure, Barrels, and 7 & Older Mares, 2nd in Ranch Reining and Pole Bending, 3rd in Ranch Cutting, and 5th in Handy Ranch Horse.
All of these placings earned her the High Point Buckle
that was awarded to the KFQHRA Open Division.
She also finished 3rd for my nephew, Will, in Ranch Pleasure
and 1st in Youth Mares, 2nd in Handy Ranch Horse and Barrels, and 4th in Poles for my niece, Sarah.
