GGS Brigadier
8 m/o PRE Colt
Handler: Lokela Etorin
SHH Summer Event 2018
Class: Sprinkler Run Liberty
(thought we'd go with something sweet and pretty but NAAAAHHH xD)


As he unclipped the halter and the liver chestnut colt shot off across the shoreline, Lokela felt like a parent trying to keep up with their kid at a water park. "Stay close! Don't go running off too far!" he called after Brigadier, who didn't seem to notice that his romp in the sand was part of the competition. That there was a crowd of onlookers enjoying his antics and a line of judges assessing his every move. To him it was a welcome break from standing still in the blazing sun. To his handler, it was one of many events on the agenda for their summer and fall season, with even more on the horizon over the winter months. They’d be busy for what he was sure would feel like forever.

At a sharp whistle, Brigadier crisply turned his head and came trotting back toward home. He picked up speed and whizzed by toward the opposite shoreline as Lokela waved him on. Bouncing through the waves, kicking up surf and sand, the colt made his handler glad the halter class had already passed. Now all he had to do was round up his enthusiastic charge, give him a nice cool bath, wait for the results, and head off into the sunset to the next adventure.
