    There's nothing like show pics...

    To show off how much you need a lunge lesson

    Got my show pics back from the show on Saturday. I was actually surprised; considering everything, some of them turned out ok. Just did training 3 and training 4 with him because I got a bit lazy and didn't want to trailer in on Sunday for the 1st level classes. The day itself was a bit of a gong show. We got snow. Massive amounts of snow. Followed by pounding hail. So the show was moved inside, but riders were pretty much unable to warmup, unless they decided to brave the elements outside. So my warmup went out the window, and my first test became my warmup. I wasn't happy with my riding at all (apparently my leg decided to just start a-swinging ) and he was extremely tight in his back. But we survived, and despite that, ended up with a 60% and 62% which was enough for 4th and 2nd place out of about 8-9 riders. And a bottle of wine

    But here are the show pics!


    Look at that crooked ear

    What a beautiful fascillity! Beautiful horse!

    At least you made it through, even though your first test was your warm up. Congrats on the scores and the placings! Too bad I wasn't there to share the wine! Lol.

    The facilities are gorgeous...they belong to John Anderson...you know the one that is always competing at Spruce Meadows? I think its on like 200+ acres, and I could practically live in his barn ;)

    And yes...the wine! After drinking...alot of it...I realized that my day wasn't so bad. Or maybe the wine just blocked it out

    hah, you're right! I can see the resemblance!

    I'm lucky my guy looks flashy undersaddle though, because in person, he sometimes looks like a cartoon. He's got the badly crooked ear, a huge lump on one side of his jaw and two missing front teeth :P so we're lucky we pull it together undersaddle, because if not, i'm sure we'd be laughed out of the arena!
