Talking Great dressage test!!

I had an Eventing Mini Trial this weekend and although I fell off during cross country and got myself eliminated lol (see my "frustrated about show" thread haha!!), I did have a FABULOUS dressage test at least!

My score was a 32.5 which in the Eventing world is pretty good (goes by penalty points so you want lower, not higher). It's my personal best in the 5 shows I've done so far and I'm just so proud of Sandie and what she's learned so far (she and I have been together 9 months and we're both green so it's a big accomplishment whenever we get a score like this!)

Here are some pics (and it was our first show with my new dressage saddle too, which I think really helped my position too!). The judges actually gave us a lot of good compliments which I was so excited about (they normally don't say anything to us afterwards, just write out the scores/critiques) so to hear it from them right after the test was a great feeling!

I love seeing photo's of you two.. you just look like such a perfect match for each other! Congrats on getting a great score, its always nice to come home and know that you've accomplished something that day! Even if it wasnt quite so good on the XC leg.

Well done

Congrats, that is a really good score!
She looks like she is tracking up more in the Trot, and appears to be a lot more relaxed than she was in the very first event photos you posted. Kudos!

YEAAAAAA! Great job! Sorry I've been MIA for awhile, but I'm back and can't wait to see you and Sandie doing well more! Oh and I think you should start taking vitemens, aperently Sandie thinks you aren't getting enough minerals! :P
