2010 IaAHA Spring Show

Kelly takes Gato out on Friday night to practice.   He bows to the fake audience .... she goes to practice the bow one more time and he suprises her by laying all the way down!!!   YIKES!!!!!
Indalecio says - "REMEMBER, HE IS A STALLION!  HE IS NOT YOUR PET!!"   (**Kelly has a hard time remembering this )
Christa helps Kelly give Gato a bath on Friday night.   THANKS CHRISTA!!!!  Gato loves all the attention from the girls.
Gato sees something scary outside the window and spooks -- Kelly tries to sqeeeeeze through the costume but I don't think he's feeling it ....
Russ helps Kelly practice the Spanish Walk in the warm up ring.
Erin snaps some shots outside the ring ...... Gato and Kelly wait for Jill to start the music.   :o)
Kelly has so much fun!  Gato tries to get the beat of the music but this song is so slow.   You can see on the video he is trying to step in time and then he tries to dance really slow to the beat but he just can't get it.  This is definitely not a dancing song.
Gato Spanish Walks back and forth in front of the audience with the flag.   He does a great job walking in beat with the music.   (I played this song over and over and over and over in the barn and left it running in the barn over night on 'repeat' --- Gato probably hears this song in his mind when he sleeps .... :o)
Kelly tries to bow at the end with the flag but I can totally see now why he didn't do it .... I'm leaning over in the saddle way too much.   Plus I know I was really nervous after him laying down on me the day before.   Part of me really didn't want to bow and I think Gato knew that.    :o)
Kelly talks to El Gato's fans out in the barn .... They have all kinds of questions about who trained him and what his cues were and how old he was and lots more stuff.   I think we'll make up "EL GATO" shirts and coffee mugs for all his fans now!!
Here's more video footage of the famous "El Gato" warming up on Friday night and of his performance on Saturday evening!!

Visitors are welcome anytime!
