First dressage Show

Hey everyone, today was the day I showed classie in her first dressage class. I got a dvd of my ride but slow interent won't let me get it on youtube =[ Anyways I thought she did great. she spooked once at the judges table but not bad and she got a 6 anyways at that part. I kinda messed up on my second circle and it wasn't perfectly round but she got pretty good marks. On the first circle she got an 8. Since this show came up on short notice I only had 2 weeks to get her in shape and ready for dressage (she's a rodeo/gaming pony) and I thought she did pretty well getting a 63% and 3rd out of 7 warmbloods/big horses (shes 13.1 hands lol). Im pretty impressed and I think I might start showing in more dressage with her, she's almost better at it than my two geldings which have been ridden dressage for much longer than she has lol :)

She looks great! Well done! My mare and i competed in our very first dressage show last month, and placed 8th. There were only 10 competitors lol, but i was so proud of her... I enjoyed it so much that im entering her in another dressage class next month as well as jumping. You have a very pretty mare :)
