My 1st show & my 1st ribbon! (HD Video)

Thanks again to everyone for sharing their pointers before my first show. It was a local dressage schooling show and it was an awesome learning experience.

I did the walk-only and Intro A test. After the test, I didn't want to see my scorecard. It's an odd ritual I have with any test results. I prefer to enjoy my entire day, eat dinner (I usually forget to eat when I'm upset), and then check scores before bed (I like to "sleep it off" when I'm upset).

Anyway, I was shocked when I got my scorecard (66.563%) and a 4th place ribbon was attached (out of 7 riders). I didn't care about the color of the ribbon or the actual placing, I was excited that I got something! LOL. I called my entire family including some in Jamaica to spread the word. :)

Disclaimer: I'm a relatively new adult rider. I've been riding for less than 2 years (only 1 year doing dressage/English), and I only take lessons once a week.

Wow! I am really impressed. You ride better than many poeple who have been riding for years. You have a lovely seat and great potential and seem really well matched with your horse. I think as you do more showing, work on preparing your horse a bit more for each transition. Still, you were really right on where a horse and rider at intro should be; Horse relaxed, rider upright and aligned well, rythmic and relaxed movement. Super nice!

Thanks Tiny! It felt good to see my hard work pay off. I see the vast improvement I've made and I'm committed to growing. I started taking yoga to help with my balance, relaxation in my shoulders and strengthen my core.

Thanks everyone! The next show is in May and I want to retake this test and ask my trainer if I'm ready for Intro B test. My circles need work but I want to challenge myself at the same time.
