So my "badly conformed, useless for anything but trail riding, never will be able to show" little qh made it to her (and my) first show ever this Sun. I signed for Intro B and C (was very hesitant about C because we just started working on canter, BUT my trainer was very encouraging to give it a try).
Unfortunately since I've never been at the show I messed up with timing (braiding in morning, cloth change, etc.) and had just 10 mins of warm-up (only 5 mins of trot) before Intro B. Definitely not enough so I knew we are both not quite ready when I entered. Was OK though - not bad and not great either, she didn't go round much (expected) but accepted the bit and was trying.
However Intro C was a pleasant surprise (I had about 30 mins for warm-up between the tests). She was trying hard for me in arena: quiet, consistent, and nice canter departure on correct lead both time (which I didn't even hold my breath about when I entered). We got lots of praise from judge after we finish (and it was well-deserved by the horse I have to say).
So here is a video to the beginning
of Intro C (I was hoping to get the whole test taped, but mom screwed the focus/distance on camera and wasn't able to get it back
And here are some pics from Intro B (yes, yes, I know the flaws for those
also discussed it with the judge).
