Ten Reasons to Love Ten

BY GUEST BLOGGER DEANNA BECKLEY

Jesse showed the last of his three horses on Sunday – Ten Reasons. He was really looking forward to showing Ten – he’s been really good all year and is fun to show.

There are so many reasons to love Ten.

1. He’s a cute little bugger.

2. He may be little but he sure is mighty. He has a huge heart and a whole lot of try.

3. He’s dependable. He’s the same in the warm-up pen as he is in the show pen – he’ll never let you down.

4. He’s just one of those horses that catches everyone’s eye, one that everyone wants to take home.

5. He’s never moody, doesn’t hold a grudge and loves his job.

6. He’s a huge stopper, big turner and pretty mover.

7. He marks big and is easy to show.

8. He’s a stud that doesn’t know he’s a stud.

9. As gritty as they come.

10. He marked a 217.5 in the first go of the Open Futurity.

What more could you ask for in a horse!

Jesse worked Ten lightly the night before showing. Ten doesn’t take much prep.

Putting skid boots on to stop.

He worked the stop up and down center.

Jesse was very happy with how Ten showed. With a 217.5 going into the second go, that puts him in good contention for the finals. Looking forward to Wednesday for his second run. I’ll be a nervous wreck, but cheering as loud as I can!
