    timeing gates and course changes.

    I think that's bad as it should have been anounced and also the wrighting should have been made bolder and also the apropreat markers put on the correct gates.
    I lost hart in a driveing class in a village called wheathampsted.
    We stood in line and was standing out squareley he was an abserlute angle he never put a foot wroung.
    There was a norweagen fordg spelt wroung sorry it pulled the lady handler over it was bucking and broke away twice.
    And low and behold it came first.
    I was quite anoyed as it had never been driven.
    I had a sacastic question which I asked the judge,how many pairs of shafts does that get through in a day.

    So, it turned out, all training level teams had some sort of mistake in the marathon.
    So the judges decided, that if a training level team made time in the marathon, they were given no penalties, and no elimination.

    So We got our first place!!

    I wasn't creating drama, well maybe just a little, I wanted to post a photo of my boy and his ribbon. Couldn't figure how, with my new phone, till just now.

    Does anyone know why the show carts are so danged low? The driver is forced to lean to see around the horse as the view straight on is the horse's behind.

    We have a Paul Raburn show cart that sits to high you need 2 steps to mount it. You get a bird's eye view of the horse!

    Tenakee's second time hooked up to the cart, we went about a mile, which for her is like a journey across the desert. She did very well, some of that "I'm an 19 year old broodmare and you want me to do WHAT now?" Otherwise, she was very willing and calm. If she doesn't understand what you are asking, the worst thing she does is just stop and stand there until you ask her in a way she understands. Next time I'll get the breast-collar harness out, considering it was actually made for what we were doing. Though she does look very pretty in her team harness... So proud of this old mare!

    Remember I had been saying one of the horses in my pair was not acting right? I found a bump on his tail, just a raised area, not large, that did not seem to bother him when I touched it, so I ignored it.

    He had been so bad one evening last week that I just circled back to the barn and unhitched. So the next day, hitching him up single to see if he was different, as I put the crupper on he leapt forward about a foot, as I had brushed that bump and it popped open.

    So the vet is coming this morning to remove and test it.

    He has been telling me something was wrong, and I have TRIED to listen...he may be a bobtail Arabian after this, lol.
