Cayla and Calypso had a beautiful go yesterday in trail at the Extreme Mustang Makeover 2015. This little horse can do it all. The duo made the cut to last night’s finals and placed 8th, winning enough prize money to turn it into a profitable weekend. They were the only English competitors, and the crowd loved Calypso’s jumping.
Cayla announced to the audience that she wanted to take Calypso “home” when trainers were allowed to talk about their horses just before they were auctioned. A bunch of us barn “moms” conspired in the stands to chip in and protect Cayla and Calypso from aggressive bidders. Client-emeritus, Ragan, owner of the beloved Jasper, came up with the idea. Our plotting proved unnecessary. The packed crowd of bidders respected Cayla’s wishes, held back on bidding and let her buy Calypso back. People must have thought we were insane with all our cheers and tears.
